Reviewed bybkoganbingVote: 6/10/10

Against All Odds is an less than effective remake of Out of the Pastthat RKO noir classic that starred Robert Mitchum, Jane Greer, KirkDouglas and Rhonda Fleming. Not that the players in this film are bad,far from it. But the whole basic structure of the story was completelychanged.

What made Out of the Past the classic it is, is the moody tension andoverwhelming sadness surrounding the leading characters. Most of allJane Greer who is an evil temptress beyond description bringing deathand destruction to all around her.

Jane Greer is in this film, but as the mother of Rachel Ward who playsthe part Greer had in the original. Ward in this one is just a spoiledyoung woman who runs off with bookie James Woods to upset mom and thenruns off with him.

Greer is the owner of a professional football team in Los Angeles whichshe runs with her high priced fixer of a lawyer Richard Widmark. Ithink they're characters are modeled on Joan Payson who was theoriginal owner of the New York Mets and M. Donald Grant who was reputedto be the hard character Widmark portrays.

Anyway Jeff Bridges gets into the act when he's cut from Greer's teamand goes to work for Woods trying to locate Ward. The rest of the filmis pretty much following the plot of Out of the Past until the endingwhich is completely different. Remember how everyone ended up in theRKO film and the same doesn't happen to most of them.

Still it's not a bad film, but Against All Odds just won't be aclassic.

Wow...this is one waste of timeReviewed byfightingamish00Vote: 7/10

The only good thing I can say about this movie is that it's theme song is one of Phil Collin's best. Too bad it was wasted on a movie that had an extraordinarily thin plot with a less than satisfactory anti-climatic ending. After investing your time trying to figure everything out and what's going on, the ending will hugely disappoint you. The chemistry between the actors is blah at best and the script's dialog is as elementary as the plot. It's not worth the time or effort to watch. You're better off listening to the Phil Collins song over and over again. Yet another 80's movie where the theme song is the only good thing about it (see also Caddyshack 2, Over the Top, Chariots of Fire, and many more that I can't think of right now) 2 out of 10 b/c the song makes it only slight better than Mo' Money)

An effective neo-noir that gets a little convuluted towards the endReviewed byFrankieDeesVote: 7/10

Just recently discovering this on dvd, I'm actually suprised I haven't heard much about it before. A modern film noir that's a very loose remake of "Out of the Past" with Robert Mitchum and Kirk Douglas. The film instead focuses on gorgeous, sunny locations like Mexico and the finer locations of L.A. instead of the dark and grungy look that most film noir's follow. Jeff Bridges stars as a pro L.A. football player that gets cut because of a mild injury. Upset because he has some good years left in him, he attempts to sue the team to no avail. Broke and looking for a job, a shady past friend played by James Woods shows up with a job offer: find his girlfriend who split on him and headed to Mexico. This girlfriend also happens to be the daughter of the woman who owns the L.A. pro football team, a ruthless business woman who is primarily interested in real estate and inherited the team from her late husband. When he decides he needs a vacation and the money, he takes Woods up on his offer. After a couple days of useless searching, he finally finds her...and immediately falls in love. The femme fatale is played by Rachel Ward, a hot commodity back then, coming off of The Thornbirds. A spoiled rich princess-type, she eventually succumbs to him and the following scenes are some of the most beautiful sequences put on film. The only commercial movie that has filmed scenes in the gorgeous ancient ruins of Chichen Itza and Tulum, these sequences make the film. The sex scene is one of the best I've seen, really putting a passion on the screen without becoming too...late night cinemax. Unfortunately, from here, the film plummets into a convuluted mess trying to deal with issues that seem out of place with the film: The L.A. business elite, gambling, real estate, etc. I think the film is definitely worth a watch for the first two-thirds alone. Also, dvd fans are encouraged to listen to the cast commentary. One of the better commentaries I've heard, there is a lot of great anecdotes from a rare track by Jeff Bridges and James Woods. The two leads really seem to come off as real friends joking and ribbing each other, unlike some of the stuffy professional actor commentaries that are usually the case.
