The payoff is excitement when Mel Gibson portrays hard-boiled Porter in Payback, a fast, frequently funny and ecstatically twisted blend of action and noir atmosphere co-written and directed by Brian Helgeland, Academy Award winner for L.A. Confidential. Porter makes his living outside the law, so when his partners in a heist rip off his $70,000 share and leave him for dead; there is only one way for Porter to settle things: his way. And that sends him on a vendetta that will have a lot of lowlifes gaping at the talking end of Porter's fat revolver. Crooked cops. Street gangs. Spineless flyspecks. Crime bosses. Anyone and everyone standing between Porter and his 70 grand are going to know he's back with a vengeance.
Ante up-for laughter and action aplenty! Mel Gibson is sly gambler Bret Maverick, Jodie Foster is a charming scam artist and James Garner (the original Bret Maverick, from the Emmy-winning TV series) is a laid-back lawman in Maverick, the crowd-pleasing hit that deals you a winning hand. With more twists than a switchback trail and more sleights of hand than a shell game, Maverick is rollicking proof of how the West was fun. A riverboat poker tourney promises a winner-take-all $500,000...and Bret aims to be the winner who does the taking! But first he must cope with the hangman's noose, a runaway stage, a wily Indian chief, outlaws, ing rates, a bagful of rattlesnakes and more close calls than a long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs. So don't miss the excitement. The jokers-Gibson, Foster and Garner-are wild!
CONSPIRACY THEORY: An offbeat romantic comedy. Jerry Fletcher (Gibson), a conspiracy-obsessed New York cab driver, sees evidence of sinister plots in even the most ordinary places. Alice Sutton (Roberts) is a bright, albeit skeptical justice dept. attorney.
