The Reviews for Against All Odds (1984) 720p


Woods and Bridges Carry Often Confusing FilmReviewed bydglinkVote: 7/10

Loosely based on a 1947 film noir, "Out of the Past," Taylor Hackford's "Against All Odds" has strong performances in all but the most critical role. Jessie, a confused disoriented heiress, is the romantic obsession of two men and the crux of the film's action. However, Rachel Ward fails to convince that Jessie could obsess anyone with her flat delivery and phoned-in performance. Jessie runs off to Mexico to snorkel and shop, and her gangster boyfriend hires an injured football player to find her. Sending a handsome hunky athlete off to find your girlfriend at the beach is not an inspired idea, and both the expected and the unexpected ensue. The twisted convoluted tale occasionally meanders, and the pacing falters at times. However, when the sweaty romantic scenes are over, the plot manages to re-energize and re-capture attention towards the fade out.

Despite her physical beauty, Ward is the black hole at the film's center. However, her two co-stars are more captivating. James Woods can play slimy gangsters in his sleep, and his Jake Wise is appropriately chilling and creepy, which makes Jessie's attraction to him even less convincing. Evidently Jake had a brain fart when he decided to hire Terry Brogan to search for the girl who deserted him, because Jake and Terry are worlds apart in the looks and charm departments. Jeff Bridges's athletic Terry, who has history with Jake, is unwittingly drawn into a vortex of corruption during his search for Jessie. Although always watchable, Jeff Bridges has had better and more demanding roles than an injured jock playing private eye. Despite a decent script adapted by Eric Hughes from Daniel Mainwaring's original, the film's central mystery is why Jake and Terry would be hopelessly drawn to a shallow drifter like Jessie. Ward received top billing over Bridges and Woods, another mystery as baffling as any in the plot.

Experienced veterans provide solid supporting performances, led by a still-handsome Richard Widmark, who, at age 70, remained a commanding presence. In a nod to film buffs, Jane Greer, star of the 1947 version, appears as Ward's cold distant mother. Location work in the Mayan temples of Mexico's Yucatan is travel-log appealing, and the end credits feature an Oscar-nominated title song by Phil Collins. An exciting car race through Los Angeles traffic is thrilling, if pointlessly reckless. Although "Against All Odds" runs more than 20 minutes longer than the 1947 original, Bridges and especially Woods are compelling enough to hold attention even when the tricky plot wanders.

Loosely based on Out Of The Past, this updating brings some new elements,many of which work, a few of which don't. Neat use of Jane Greer, heroineof the first film, as heroine's mother. So many new twists and turns,knowing the original will not spoil this thriller's conclusion. Only thingas per usual with Taylor Hackford, the film goes on a bit too long, butmostof it is so good, you won't mind.

The single thing that stand out most for me in this film is the verylast shot of Rachel Ward looking at the camera while Phil Collins,singing the title song, says "How can I just watch you walk away, whenall I can do is watch you leave".

If you've ever been part of a couple where 2 people loved each other sovery much, but it had to end because circumstances like jobs, school,parents, etc. made it impossible to continue, this movie is for you.

If you've lived through a time in your life when you and yourfriends/lovers were immortal-young lions-with the world at your feet,but one day you sense a change of seasons in the air... a change thatfor shadows the coming of the real world you always knew was there butthat you had hoped against hope to avoid, you'll love this movie.

Great characters, solid performances, top notch script, beautifulnatural scenery in Mexico, great soundtrack and a real "LA in the 80's"feel. For the most part the film holds up well today and the "look" istimeless. Very few holes in the plot, if any, and a fine supportingcast.
