4.0 out of 5 stars Tequila Sunrise April 2, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Mel Gibson and Kurt Russell are very good in this movie, and are very believable as lifelong friends at a crossroad. Mel is a retired drug dealer while Kurt is a cop. Not a likely duo to maintain a friendship. Michelle Pheiffer portrays the love interest of Mel, and do those two have chemistry! This is a perfect match, and they are combustible together. While this is an older film, it still has the ingredients that all great films do.

4.0 out of 5 stars A master piece among crime movies February 21, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Tequila Sunrise is an excellent crime/action movie. It has suffered a bit from bad press, which in my opinion is totally unjustified. People have said, that the actors were wasted on this kind of movie. This is nonsense! Tequila Sunrise is one of the best movies in its genre BECAUSE it was made with good, instead of the usual mediocre actors. It shows clearly, that with good acting and a somewhat complecated script a rather unasuming movie can rise to unexpacted heights. Mel Gibson and Kurt Russel are particularly well suited to their respective roles as sympathetic ex-crook and not so sympathetic police officer. Michelle Pfeiffer in a somewhat unusual role as the woman in between these two lends a depth to the part which females in this kind of story usually lack. Finally Raul Julia as a mexican dope smuggler is a very enjoyable sight. You can never really hate him even when he starts issuing execution orders. A pleausre to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic. Wish more movies were of this caliber. December 2, 1999
First of all, leave it to Leonard Maltin to misjudge another movie. I don't know why it still surprises me sometimes.
This movie has all the style and story which makes me want to watch it again and again. Sparks really fly between Gibson and Pfieffer. The supporting cast is excellent. My favorite of whom is of course Raul Julia. Fantastic.
The story is a little confusing the first time through. But this is irrelevant on further viewings.
I highly recommend this to purchace. You will never grow tired of it.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favourites October 28, 2007
I have no idea what other reviewers are talking about when they write that this movie is hard to follow. This is no Pulp Fiction, where the characters die in one scene and are walking around like nothing happened in the next. Tequila Sunrise is easy to follow, despite the twists. What good movie doesn't have twists? Of course, the second time you watch any movie, the twists make more sense - you can even say that about Pulp Fiction, which is one of the most confusing movies I've ever seen (the first time I watched it...). The plot for Tequila Sunrise is engaging, the characters are sexy, and the setting is great. There's relationship stuff for the women and cops and robbers action for the men. What's not to love? If you're not sure about buying this movie, try renting it first. I'm sure you'll be back to make the purchase. It's worth watching and rewatching over the years.

So my Blu Ray arrived a day early and so I began to watch it. At first I thought the TV settings were off but NO, it was the Blu Ray. I have seen bad converted movies to blu ray before but this one is the worst. Dont waste your money on it,

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Cast Makes for a Great Movie October 6, 2003
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Tequila Sunrise is one of the few action movies that you can watch until the end without ever getting tired of the fast-paced plot involving crime, drugs, money, etc. The dialouge is intense, the actors are great, and the plot doesn't drag on. Michelle Pfieffer and Mel Gibson show great chemistry, and also Raul Julia has a minor role that really showed his talent. This movie is a real fun one to watch. I'd reccomend it to any fan of action, or lover of great scripts.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Robert Towne Masterpiece March 2, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It seems American audiences found the subtle character layering and intricate plot too much work in 1988. I have watched this movie many times and place it in my all time top 10 list. Robert Towne not only wrote a brilliant screen play, he did a great job of directing this film. While you might not think Mel Gibson, Kurt Russell, Michelle Pfeiffer and Raul Julia are the best actors of their generation, this movie is surely one of the best works in their repetoire.

Warner Brothers balked at making a film in 1988 where the hero is a single parent drug dealer trying to go straight, the villain is a narcotics police detective, and the female love interest sleeps with both characters! But the complexity of the characterization is exactly what I yearn for in movies: the ambiguity of their interactions allows us to understand something fundamental about human nature, and to fully understand the complexity of life's choices.

Still good after all these years!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Classic September 9, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Like many of the other reviewers, this is one of my all time favorite movies. It's the kind of movie that would make me want to go to the theater if it were playing today. It's got that same film noir feeling as classics from the 40's. The chemistry amongst the three main characters is great, the story and settings are compelling, and for the ladies in the audience, Mel & Kurt are looking their best! The only fault I can find with this movie, which I only noticed because I've seen it so many times, is when Michele Pfeiffer's character claims not to know Mel Gibson's character's first name ... by the time this scene comes around she's heard it many times. Other than that, I think it's perfect!

I have never purchased this film. I never been tempted to purchase it. I am mystified to have been asked to review it. Sad misuse of Gibson et. al. talents.
