Violence abounds in this romantic thriller!
Violence seems to be the theme in this film. Not that I'm very fond of violent films. I found this one a bit too long. Produced by it's star, Kevin Costner, not one of my favorite actors, it follows his quest, if you want to call it that, for his true love, played well by Madeleine Stowe, who, along with himself, became victims of revenge for their tryst by none other than Anthony Quinn, a masterful actor in all that he does. And that's the plot. Director Tony Scott did some fine work with this movie along with the excellent photography by Jeffrey Kimball. Many of the scenes had that smoky soft sepia tones. The morning scene in the mountains was awesome, with the fog crawling up the side of the mountain. Quinn was my favorite in this. He, was the villain, and who could blame him. A man stole his wife and had an affair. However, in his revenge upon the lovers, you never doubted his pain and remorse in what he had to do. Bravo, Anthony! Stowe played it very well with just the right amount of sadness and never over the top. You really felt her agony in the latter part of the movie as she was dying. Costner, however, just didn't grab me. I was always aware of his acting. He always has one look on his face. Like he doesn't know what's happening around him. More a role for the likes of Harrison Ford or Brendan Fraser. It was a surprise to see John Legiuzamo in a small but effective role. John, as we all know, has come far, even to appearing solo on Broadway. If you have nothing else to do, watch this movie if only for Quinn and Stowe's performances.
