Political Thriller Week: ‘No Way Out’

Washington D.C. is up in arms with an ongoing scandal, and AHFW is not taking a side, but it is a very topical theme at the moment.  So, we’d thought we’d look back at four of our favorite political thrillers!

Kevin Costner burst on the scene with two movies in 1985:  “Fandango” and “Silverado”.   Apparently, films ending in “o” were big that year.  Didn’t Hollywood release “Jello”, “Figaro” and “Oreo” in 1985 as well?  Mmm….perhaps not.

Anyway, in “No Way Out” (1987), Costner plays U.S. Navy Lieutenant Tom Farrell, and he’s in a race against time to prevent being framed for a murder.  Gene Hackman, Will Patton and Sean Young star in this very effective, beat-the-clock flick.

Trust us:  There’s no way that you should miss “No Way Out”!
