      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Roger Donaldson's modern spin on the dense, stylish suspense films of the 1940s features fine work from Gene Hackman and Sean Young, as well as the career-making performance that made Kevin Costner a star.

      Christian K Its a decent, and very era specific, thriller that features on the more meaningless and stupid ending scene twists of all time. Hackman not given nearly enough to do. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 11/11/23 Full Review Jack t No Way Out is one of those movies that'll get you in suspense. The theme song from No Way Out is pretty good also, and yeah, years ago I love this film since I watched it and the chase scenes are a lot of fun and the twist in the end really messes the audiences up. Other than that this is one of the favorite films of all time and Kevin Costner and Gene Hackman are good in it. I really love No Way Out when I first saw it back in the day and I haven't seen it in ages right now and I still enjoy it. I've been a fan of Kevin Costner ever since I've seen one of his films and this one will get me on the thrilling mood. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 08/25/23 Full Review Jelisije J A movie that starts off slow, but left me engaged throughout it middle and third act. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 04/22/23 Full Review Tania G Ok super fun seeing all the 80s clothes and hair. And notice that Kevin's white uniform hardly ever is dirty-other than the coffee scene. All the phones…yep totally dated and yet a great ending. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review andy i Underrated Costner and 80s spy thriller. One of the best twists I've ever seen in film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review david w An amazing movie! A complex thriller that so rings true to what is going on in 2022! It's a must see with Will Patton in a stand out role, Sean Young spectacular, Gene Hackman at his finest and Kevin Costner downright amazing!

      Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune While the film's behind-the-scenes look into the world of Washington bureaucracy is appealing, the movie is a complete letdown as a thriller, dissolving into implausible silliness. Jul 29, 2013 Full Review Dave Kehr Chicago Tribune 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. Rated: 3/4 Jul 29, 2013 Full Review Empire Magazine Good performances from a strong cast and paranoid plotting enough to keep even the staunchest of remake nay-sayers quiet. Hitchockian production with a modern twist. Rated: 5/5 Jul 29, 2013 Full Review Savina Petkova A Good Movie To Watch No Way Back is a symbol of this transitional period, but by retaining the classic noir vibe (deception, fleeing, yearning), it becomes a tribute to the past. Rated: 78/100 Nov 24, 2023 Full Review Molly Haskell Video Review This stunning thriller about a murder and an elaborate cover-up in present-day Washington power circles was one of the best movies of 1987 and, to my mind, an all-time classic. Rated: 4/4 Aug 5, 2022 Full Review Eddie Harrison film-authority.com '...a model of what a good, hard, modern thriller can be...' Rated: 4/5 Apr 25, 2021 Full Review Read all reviews
