Product description

Product Description

Western based on the successful TV series and starring Mel Gibson as the eponymous gambling hero. The film follows Bret Maverick as he struggles to raise the $25,000 entrance stake for a poker game by ripping off as many people as he can in the American Old West. During his quest to reach the game he narrowly escapes being lynched, shot by safari hunters and Indians and robbed several times by the beautiful adventuress Annabelle Bransford (Jodie Foster). Can he make it to the final and win the $500,000 grand prize?

From Amazon.co.uk

The joined-at-the-hip team of director Richard Donner and star Mel Gibson (all the Lethal Weapon movies and Conspiracy Theory) had obvious fun resurrecting the Wild Western comedy television series about a roguish rambler-gambler. In Maverick, Gibson assumes the role of cardsharp Bret Maverick, equally quick with a pair of aces and a pair of guns. Good sport James Garner (who played Maverick on TV) takes another role, as a lawman who travels alongside the hero to a big-money poker game on a riverboat. The real peach in this fruit salad of satire and broad jokes, however, is Jodie Foster, who plays a crafty Southern belle quite adept at poker herself. Sexy, funny, and (from the onscreen evidence) a great kisser, Foster has never been more of a delight. Written by William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid). --Tom Keogh

What do you get if you put James Garner, one of the best deliverers of humour in Hollywood's history, Mel Gibson who shows an aptitude for comedy which may have served him better than some of his more violent movies, and Jodie Foster who shows the breadth of her acting ability from Silence of the Lambs to this movie?
Answer...Maverick. If you're miserable, watch it, if you're not...still watch it. Wonderful.

The overall effect of the film is not bad. The ending was wonderful. The plot is very subtle. I watched this video by myself. The film is too good to be true. The two main characters of the emotional performance of people laughing.

Maverick is a good film inspired by the television series of the same name. The performances from the principal cast are good even if they are just in the most part playing it for laughs. Overall, a good film but don't expect too much from it.

When I was about 10 Maverick was my favourite of all the western TV series, and there were many. So, when I saw this I thought it would be fun to see it again and see if it still appealed. It is every bit as good as I remembered it. Forget that awful film version with Mel Gibson, it's not a patch on the TV series with James Garner at his laconic best. For those who have not seen it, think "Hustle", but in the wild west.Garner and Jack Kelly play gambling brothers, who are always scheming to make a fast buck. The stories might seem a little thin by today's standard, but they are played out with great charm and wit. I particularly liked the episode "Gun Shy" which was a spoof of another popular TV western of the time "Gun Smoke", and this was decades before Mel Brooks or "Airplane" stormed the cinema. Here's hoping they bring out further episodes on DVD. Roger Moore was in this series for a while as a gambling cousin and it would be nice to see an epsiode featuring him.

Maverick is a gentle reminder of how good Mel Gibson is in light comedic roles. There are a few laugh out loud moments but mostly this film makes you smile. With camoes a plenty and a ravishing looking Jodie Foster this film is over before you know it. The sunny western settings look delightfully fake and everyone gives it there all. Danny Glover pops up as a bank robber and Alfred Molina is great as the hissable villain. I just enjoyed familiar face spotting especially during the climactic card game. Its a shame Mr Gibson went on to making historically inaccurate epics and getting himself arrested. He is a pleasure to watch in this as is James Garner. The DVD itself is a bit bare but the quality of the film makes up for it.
