About the Movie
In a fit of rage, Secretary of Defense David Brice (Gene 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 enlists naval commander Tom Farrell (Kevin 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 of 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 life.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It's so effective, in fact, that when it's all over, you might want to sit through the beginning again just to see if the end is justified by the means. I suspect that it is.
Fresh: No Way Out is an effective updating and revamping of the 1948 film noir classic The Big Clock.
Fresh: No Way Out's greatest prize is Costner, a leading man at last: fiercely good, intelligent, appreciatively sensual in a performance balanced perfectly between action and introspection.
Fresh: No Way Out emerges, paradoxically, as a film that is better than it has to be and not as good as it ought to be, but there is skill here, as well as an admirable willingness to try something new.
Excellent movie, I love Costner's old stuff
Where is Bull Durham? Excellent movie, I love Costner's old movies.
The ONLY Costner movie I like
This is really a must see. I generally do not like Mr. Costner in pretty much anything else I have ever seen, but this was before he was a known entity. The story alone is worth the look.
Great movie one of the best that ever made !!
