"A tightly wound and engrossing thriller!"
The Hollywood Reporter
Imagine being a hunter leading highly trained bloodhounds in pursuit of a killer... and the trail leads directly to you!
Starring Academy Award winners Kevin Costner and Gene Hackman, No Way Out is "a mesmerizing look at Washington power" (The Hollywood Reporter). Capturing a well-deserved four stars from critic Roger Ebert, this "taut and stylish" (Newsweek) thriller is fast-paced and powerful - "a perfect nail-biter" (Variety).
In a fit of rage, Secretary of Defense David Brice (Hackman) murders his mistress. To keep a lid on the scandal, Brice's loyal aide (Will Patton), creates the perfect cover-up. He "invents" a more enticing killer - a Russian spy - and then enlists naval commander Tom Farrell (Costner) to find him. But as a chilling twist of fate would have it, Farrell also has a strong connection to the victim... and now all the clues he's been hired to uncover are leading straight to him! In a desperate race against time, Farrell's search for the killer is not only a matter of national security, but also a matter of saving his own hide. -- (C) MGM Home Entertainment, 1987, USA.
