so this movie has a pretty good cast
but man is it boring and slow paced
Tequila Sunrise is an entertaining crime thriller that’s full of mystery and intrigue. Two former friends, Lt. Nick Frescia and Mac McKussic, find themselves on opposite ends of the law, and engage in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse when Frescia gets wind that McKussic will be making a major drug deal. Mel Gibson, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Kurt Russell form a solid cast and give strong performances. And, the story is written fairly well and does a good job at building suspense. Yet, there are some parts of the film (including the last act) that don’t work, and come off as a bit forced. Still, Tequila Sunrise is an engaging neo-noir drama with a compelling story and interesting characters.
