Appalachian Clan vS. The Chicago Mob
Patrick Swayze stars in an action revenge thriller in the same year that he also made Road House, the following year he made Ghost, these were two years after he had made a sensual splash with Dirty Dancing. Thus it’s safe to say that Patrick did not pigeon hole himself. Next of Kin holds no great hidden gem rewards, but it’s a rock solid thriller boasting a splendid cast list featuring Liam Neeson, Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton, Adam Baldwin, Andreas Katsulas, Ben Stiller (in a serious role), Michael J. Pollard, Ted Levine and Paul Greco.
Plot finds Swayze as a Chicago cop who after the murder his younger brother desperately tries to uphold the law while one of his brothers from the “sticks” would rather enact all out revenge on the mobsters that killed the younger sibling. Suffice to say things go pear shaped and blood, loyalty and life altering decisions do follow.
The trajectory is simple , honest cop tries to do the right thing by the law in spite of the hurt in his heart, hillbilly brother (Neeson getting the best role in the film) would rather deliver some “deliverance” type justice – all while the rest of the “Gates” family clan await the call to come wading down from the hills to aid the retribution flow. The action scenes are well enough staged by director John Irvin, there’s a whole bunch of fun in the characterisations – even if they are standard 101 scripted – while if you can get past Swayze’s ponytail you will find a very restrained and cool performance.
Hardly a must see, but definitely no stinker and worth your time as a time filler, if only to see such a fresh faced young cast of well knowns turning tricks before bigger things awaited. 6/10
Well, without reviewing the entire movie I will suggest this. Liam Neeson, God love him, should never again do a movie with a hillbilly accent.
Good Movie, Liam Neeson is GREAT in this movie.
I chose this movie for a report in my Communications class. I have seen it several times but looking at it from a different angle this time, I saw the development of Swayze’s character or his return to his family roots. However you want to look at it. The first time I saw this movie I was blown away by Liam Neeson’s portrayal of Briar Gates, he brings his character to life as much as any actor as ever brought a character to life in any movie. Years later when I discovered that Liam was british my opinion of his acting abilities skyrocketed. My favorite quote in the movie was by Liam, “My name is Briar Gates and I want the man that kilt my brother.” In print it doesn’t sound like much but when he delivers it, this quote is truly amazing.
There are better 80s actioners, and better Swayze flicks too!
Patrick Swayze, coming off the heels of ‘Dirty Dancing’, did a couple of somewhat cult action films back in 1989. One was ‘Road House’ and the other was this film; ‘Next of Kin’. My memory of this was better to say the least. This is a bad movie. Basically it’s a revenge flick that makes no sense whatsoever. It’s a country vs. the city movie, as hillbilly rednecks take on the mafia. I won’t bother with the plot, other than to say it’s badly written. What is interesting about this movie is the cast.
You have Swayze of course as the lead, Helen Hunt as his love interest, and a relatively unknown Liam Neeson playing Swayze’s older brother in a heroic role. Adam Baldwin, Ted Levine, Bill Paxton and a young Ben Stiller are in this movie as well. Out of the cast, Neeson’s Briar is the most interesting character, and Neeson delivers the goods. Always worth checking out films you remember from your youth if you are someone like me, but this is just essentially a cheesy action film from the 80s that you can easily skip.
