NO WAY OUT is a great 80s thriller expertly directed by Roger Donaldson. It boasts a good cast led by Kevin Coster as an amiable if ambitious Navy serviceman caught up in a web of sex, murder, and intrigue. To make things more complicated, since it is the 80s, there runs the risk of dangerous Russian spies on the loose as well. Some of the spy elements are dated because of the Cold War setting but it remains suspenseful thanks to the moral dilemmas imposed upon Costner's character and even his enemies.

A rather dated Kevin Costner vehicle saved from total mediocrity by Gene Hackman who should belong to International Rescue for the number of dreary Hollywood thrillers he's salvaged. It does have a decent twist in the tale though.

An action movie that takes place in the Pentagon. The protagonist (Costner) witnesses the girl he loves being murdered by his boss (Hackman), who is also having an affair with her. His boss entrusts him to frame someone else. Ah, corruption. Ah, politics. Ah, love affairs. This movie is totally hokey and cheesy and melodramatic and 1987, but it is entertaining, engaging, action-y, and full of ridiculous sex. Also, Kevin Costner wears a tight uniform. Also, I want to have Kevin Costner's babies (not now, just in 1987!). A+ for sex and Kevin Costner's butt, C for a lame-o twist ending, and A for keeping me awake in my Postmodern Hollywood class.
