If only the ending could be just a tad different, this would be twice as popular as it ever got. The topnotch, passionately made film largely goes unsung, a bit like "The Siege," only because it threw away all the riveting plot twists when it reached its ho-hum finale (some may call it a great final twist).
Quibbles aside, this fast paced nail-biter may be one of the quickest 2 hours of cinema ever filmed. Costner plays a Navy commander assigned to a high level post in the DOD, where he, and the Secretary of Defense become embroiled in a murder/scandal. The bulk of the film chronicles the Departments Under Secretary's attempts to quash the problem. A high level Russian mole in the U.S. government is being pursued throughout the film. The chase keeps narrowing down more and more drawing the government officials closer and closer to the culprit. The tension became almost unbearable as the mole was about to be trapped.
Costner, for a change, is really convincing in his role, the tight dialog helping him immeasurably. Sean Young actually smiles in this movie and looks twice as good as all her other newer movies put together. Gene Hackman has the usual commanding screen presence.
All in all, a fabulous politically charged thriller you ought not to miss!

Back in the beginning of his cinema career, Kevin Costner made intelligent choices about the films he made, and NO WAY OUT -- to this day -- stands as perhaps his finest performance yet. This clever whodunnit very sparingly drops clues along the way for the most astute viewer, but, if you're watching closely, you begin to see things coming about for the Naval Intelligence Officer ... and, if you're really clever, you might guess the ending. A must-see for political thrill-seekers!

If you are looking for a film that truly manages to raise the level of tension time after time, this one is for you. It is easy to forget that at this time Costner was the hottest actor in the world and that would continue for a few years, when he churned out hit after hit. Those films, like Bull Durham and Dancing With Wolves are fine films, without question, but I feel that this one is his finest. He is a master of action and suspense, going through a range of emotions and it reminds me of what a quality actor Costner once was.

What I loved about it was the unexpected. I cannot recall a single film that so effectively fooled me. Sure, there are things that, if you look at logically, you question, but I didn't care at all at the time because I was so immersed in the story.

The supporting cast is filled with terrific actors, most especially Gene Hackman, who is one of the all-time greats, and Sean Young. It is also easy to forget how hot she was at this time and this movie showcases why.

Should be given a proper blu ray treatment with all the special features. It is a great great film, one of the best of the 80s.

By the way, I am reviewing the all region dvd. It has Korean writing on the case and that concerned me but all I had to do was turn those subtitles off. It does not have English subtitles, and I don't know if the CC works with this, so any deaf customers may want to know that.

When I first watch this movie 12 years ago, I was expecting it as just another sexy flick. But I was totally unprepared to be blown away by the superb plot, intriguing dialogue and "who-can-beat-that" ending. Not to forget the most amazing cast. Will Patton should get an award for his role. Easily one of the best movies I have ever seen.

This is one of the benchmark for the movies based on political drama and corruption in government departments. The story is about a secretary in Pentagon, and his attempts to cover-up the accidental killing of his mistress. The corrupt officers will not stop at anything to save the secretary from loosing his position. The defence secretary put Tom Farrell (Kevin Costner) in charge of the murder investigation and later uses him for the cover up by falsely accusing him of a being a KGB spy. The world around Farrell changes, as the people he was supposed to trust turns out to be corrupt and partners with the defence secretary. Go for this movie if you like the conspiracy and political thriller because till date very few movies are made up to this mark.

"No Way Out" (1987) is the second film inspired by Kenneth Fearing's 1947 novel "The Big Clock". A 1948 crime thriller, directed by John Farrow, was based on the novel. "No Way Out" borrows the plot and plugs it into a Cold War espionage thriller. Naval officer Lt. Commander Tom Farrow (Kevin Costner) begins an affair with Susan Atwell (Sean Young), mistress of Secretary of Defense David Brice (Gene Hackman). This puts him in a difficult spot when Brice hires Farrow to liaise between his office and the intelligence community, to gather information on a submarine project that Brice wants to derail. When Brice accidentally kills Susan in a fit of jealously, his General Counsel Scott Pritchard (Will Patton) wants to cover it up by pinning the murder on a hypothetical Soviet mole in the Pentagon whom the CIA has dubbed "Yuri". And he wants Tom to lead the investigation.

The title of the film refers to Farrow being trapped inside the Pentagon. Tom Farrow's name may be an homage to John Farrow's earlier film. In any case, the characters are drawn weakly, and their behavior tends not to make sense. Both Farrow and Brice play along with Pritchard's lunacy, when any sane person with two brain cells to rub together would go straight to the FBI instead of involving himself in innumerable crimes on account of an accident. Pritchard drags a hotel bellboy from Annapolis to identify the elusive Yuri. The bellboy walks around the Pentagon in the colonial regalia that he wears to work. Why? What would you think of a man who eats bugs off of your car for no particular reason? That's Farrell. There's a lot of weird stuff here. The film runs longer than it should due to superfluous scenes near the beginning, as well.

Gene Hackman doesn't have enough to work with.
