Several months pass before Tom meets Susan again; he discovers she's the mistress of the US Secretary of Defense David Brice Gene Hackman. When Susan is murdered by Brice, his loyal aide Will ...

Overview

No Way Out is told in flashback as Naval officer Tom Farrell Kevin Costner is grilled by his superiors regarding a recent "unpleasantness." While at a Washington party, Tom meets Susan Atwel Sean Young, and they're soon sharing a steamy love scene in the back of a limo marvelously parodied in 1993's Hot Shots! Part Deux. Several months pass before Tom meets Susan again; he discovers she's the mistress of the US Secretary of Defense David Brice Gene Hackman. When Susan is murdered by Brice, his loyal aide Will Patton dutifully destroys the evidence and invents the fallacious theory that a KGB mole was responsible. Tom is assigned to locate that mole -- a perilous situation, since Tom knows that no such mole exists, but must go along with the charade since he was the last person who was seen with Susan.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This suspense thriller lulls the viewer into a deceptive slumber for its first half but when the plot thickens it jumps to life and plays reasoanbly well. Despite mid-80s cut-rate production values, the plot is tightly woven and makes for pretty good suspense. Set in Washington, D.C., the world's conspiracy capital, this Kevin Costner vehicle relies heavily on political intrigue and a phony spy hunt, but its import is compromised by a contrived and '80s time-locked plot, a suspect cast, and dialogue that is just plain laughable in places. Costner's performance is characteristically bland and Sean Young is typically flighty, but Gene Hackman pulls off a solid supporting role. The film is almost completely devoid of subtext save a few Big Brother references. However, it benefits from a stellar build-up in suspense that nicely shatters any sense of pristine complacency, as well as the use of classic tilted framing technique just prior to the climactic scene. Additionally, Roger Donaldson's understated direction does make for a couple of very memorable scenes. Certainly, there are better films within the suspense genre but this one quite possibly paved the way for the John Grisham screen adaptations of the early-to-mid-90s and helped propel Kevin Costner into super-stardom.

    Sean's lil' perkies

    I don't know if this movie is best viewed thinking Kostner's part is that of a U.S. naval hero or a Russian arch spy. Every plot complication magically fits both scenarios. I won't say more. Even though a lot of fine actors are in this film Kostner's part is required in just about every scene. Good story, good acting, good pacing. Washington powerbrokers at work. Those who have only seen this movie on TV are missing out on some full noodle frontity.

    A see-twice film

    ''No Way Out'' is a film to see twice as the second time it is an entirely different film than the first. Subtle hints and clues stand out as a plotline that was minor the first time suddenly becomes the major plotline. This is a wonderful film for this reason and for the dark moodiness of it. The characters are far more complex than they appear at first glance. Solid performances. Similarity to ''The Big Clock'', the 1948 film upon which this is supposed to be based, is actually quite faint. One can see the inspiration of one to the other, but ''No Way Out'' is an entirely new and fresh movie.

    Murder, Sex, and Mystery

    After viewing ''Bull Durham'' and the sex appeal of Kevin Costner, I was compelled to backtrack and rent this superb film. I soon found out that this generation's Gary Cooper was more than just a pretty face. Sometimes underated, Mr. Costner gives a bravo performance with the help of Gene Hackman and a terrific supporting cast. The opening scenes are sure fire heart stirrers if you are looking to boost the evening with the one you love. Doesn't hurt to have a great plot to boot!
