Storyline

Tom Farrell is a navy officer who gets posted at the Pentagon and is to report to the secretary of defense David Brice. He starts an affair with Susan Atwell not knowing that she is Brice's mistress. When Susan is found dead, Tom is assigned to the case of finding the killer who is believed to be a KGB mole! Tom could soon become a suspect when a Polaroid negative of him was found at Susan's place. He now has only a few hours to find the killer before the computer regenerates the photo.

exciting and suspenseful
24 May 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

to me,this is a brilliant political/military suspense/thriller.it's starts off pretty quickly and just goes from there.there isn't a lot of time for character development in this movie,but the suspense and intrigue makes up for it.there are some great actors here,including Kevin Costner,Gene Hackman,and Will Patton.Costner and Hackmman are good,but Patton really impressed me here.George Dzunda also stars and his role is small,but i thought he was very good.i also liked Sean young.it's too bad we don't see her in that many movies.many people might say this is a formulaic movie,and that could be true,but there are bad formulaic movies and good formulaic movies.for me,this falls into the very good category.for one thing,it kept my attention the whole time and was very exciting.my vote for No Way Out:a 9/10
