Clichéd, pulpy source material elevated by fine filmmaking and performances
As spotty as Tony Scott’s filmography was, it’s easy to forget how good he could be. This is my first time seeing REVENGE and I must say that I was surprised by how emotionally involving and artfully directed it was, despite relying on a number of genre clichés. Kevin Costner plays Michael “Jay” Cochran, a 12-year Navy veteran who has just left the service and goes to see his friend, Tiburon Mendez (Anthony Quinn), in Mexico. While there, he ends up falling in love with Tibey’s (as his friends call him) beautiful, young wife Miryea (Madeleine Stowe). When Tibey finds out about this, leaves Jay for dead and throws Miryea away in a whorehouse. The remainder of the film is Jay going back to rescue Miryea. Hopefully I haven’t given too much away, but the film is 25 years old and there has to be a statute of limitations on spoilers, even if they’re small. Since I liked more than I disliked, I’ll just get the negative stuff out of the way first. I mentioned earlier that this film relies on genre clichés. One such example, and very key to establishing the central character relationship is the history shared by Tibey and Jay. Apparently, they were hunting buddies and Jay saved Tibey’s life one time, so now Tibey is in debt to Jay. That’s something that’s been done to death in countless films before and since, but it wouldn’t be such an issue if that wasn’t the extent of it. It was just hard for me to buy that a Navy pilot would have it in so good with a Mexican power broker/kingpin. I also thought the romance that develops between Jay and Miryea was rather cliché, even if it was well-performed. And to be fair, this movie has some great performances in it. Kevin Costner was his usual likable self, and veteran actor Anthony Quinn was great as his world-weary foil. Madeleine Stowe did fine, but isn’t given much to do besides be the damsel in distress once confined to the whorehouse. Now, on to the positives (the rest). This is probably one of Tony Scott’s best-directed films, and came a decade or so before he started using his much ripped-off MTV shooting style. There were some really artful shots, e.g., a fire being reflected in sunglasses or beautiful shots of the Mexican terrain. Even the sex scenes were shot well. I also really liked the score, which struck a fine balance between melancholy and tension. But most of all, and despite the clichéd elements, the characters were well written and developed, and the performances really elevated the rather pulpy source material. Overall, REVENGE is an artful, occasionally thoughtful action thriller that probably deserves more attention than it got/currently gets. It might have a shaky dramatic foundation, but it’s definitely worth seeing for what’s built around and on top of it.
Watch the Directors Cut
If you get the chance to see this film, make sure it’s the directors cut. At a shorter running time, the story unfolds quicker, but it gets to the point, and makes for a better film. Tony Scott did a tremendous job directing, and the leading cast was great. Kevin Costner and Madeline Stowe make a great on screen couple.
The directors cut does omit much of Anthony Quinn’s performance, but what’s left is amazing. Miguel Ferrer co- stars as Amador, who helps Costner’s Cochran character get Revenge. James Gammon also makes an appearance as a Texan who helps along the way.
Overall, it’s an intense film, and a awkward love story. If you can stomach blood and gore, and like to see Kevin Costner, it’s a movie for you.
