MAVERICK (Theatrical Release USA 1994)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì 

Maverick—Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, and James Garner—delivers terrific comedy via an exceptionally well-written script with outstanding dialogue. Watch for the legendary actor, Graham Greene. With an outstanding supporting cast (Afred Molina, James Coburn, Art LaFleur, Denver Pyle, Clint Black, and Dub Taylor), the movie moves into first class entertainment despite the fact that it bases itself within the western genre. It easily earns its right to addition to the home video collection as it can be multiply viewed throughout the years without losing its entertainment edge. This witty movie serves the adult entertainment community well.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Mel Gibson does a terrific job of filling the Bret Maverick character. No challenges found in presentation, timing, or pacing. The movie fills itself with small surprises that delight and entertain. Excellent writing. Mature presentation works best for the adult audience.
