In one of the most anticipated movies of 1994, boxoffice superstar Mel Gibson ("Lethal Weapon," et. al.) and two-time Academy Award-winner Jodie Foster ("The Accused," "Silence of the Lambs") are a dapper gambler and a seductive con woman in this slick Western based on the classic TV series. James Garner ("Murphy"s Romance," TV's "Rockford Files") -- the original Maverick -- James Coburn ("The Magnificent Seven," "Young Guns II"), Graham Greene ("Northern Exposure") and a slew of country singers co-star in this film by Richard Donner ("Superman," "Lethal Weapon" trilogy). The New York Times calls this "fast, funny, full of action...[it's] "Lethal Weapon" meets "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." The Hollywood Reporter calls it "a fast-shuffling escapade of antic wit...a delightfully appealing, brainy comedy...[a] royal flush" and Variety says it's "exuberant...a whole new generation is about to discover the charm, wit and fun of Maverick."

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: At almost every turn, Maverick adds sly comic episodes.
Fresh: There can be little doubt that a whole new generation is about to discover the charm, wit and fun of Maverick.
Fresh: Affectionate, amiable, eager-to-please, in a TV-movieish sort of way.
Rotten: A gaudy reincarnation of the TV series with Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster and James Garner flashing diamonds, breaking hearts and clubbing cliches damn near to death.
This is a fun movie from the very start. I bought it when it first came out and still to this day love the whole thing. It's worth a rent to watch but to buy to watch over and over again. A+++
Hilarious awesome poker movie!!
Mel Gibson is at his best here, folks. The movie's waaay funnier and more clever than it lets on. James Garner, Jodie Foster, and Alfred Molina are all awesome in the mindblowing ride of a movie.
Great movie, but overpriced
I love this movie and watched it on DVD often. I thought I'd get the digital file here as well but cant understand why so many of the movies on iTunes are $9.99 when they are in the Walmart DVD bargain bin for $3-$8. If its cheap on DVD, it should be cheap here too. Its only a data file for crying out loud.
