No-nonsense Chicago PD detective Truman Gates (Patrick Swayze) is a particularly well-heeled policeman, carrying both a nickel plated Beretta 92F 9mm automatic in a shoulder holster, and a snub nosed Smith and Wesson model 19 .357 magnum revolver on his right hip. Presumably, the revolver is his backup weapon as he uses the Beretta, almost exclusively. See more »

Crazy Swayze's second action film from 89 is just as good
When his brother is murdered, a policeman is caught between his devotion to the law and his family's desire for revenge in this action drama. Patrick Swayze plays Truman Gates, who left his backwoods Appalachian home for life as a Chicago police officer. When his brother is killed by a gangster, Truman is determined to seek legal retribution. His older brother Briar (Liam Neeson) has different ideas, however, and travels to the city to seek old-fashioned vigilante justice. Truman must now choose between his family's belief in mountain justice and the duties of his job. Though the film is not particularly action-packed, director John Irvin does provide the expected gunplay and macho confrontations. However, despite a surprisingly distinguished cast (also including Helen Hunt and Michael J. Pollard), little distinguishes the film from numerous other revenge stories with a similar outline. Next of Kin is the second action film that Patrick Swayze starred in from 1989. The film is full of action and has some great fight scenes. Daniel Baldwin is great as the bad guy and look for a young Ben Stiller before he hit his prime.
