Maverick

1994

Richard Donner
Director
Warner Brothers
Production Company

A gambler rides into a small midwestern town to raise money to pay the entrance fee for an upcoming poker tournament, which he is intent on winning.

Based on the tv series of the same name, the film is a great comedy achievement with the leading stars all providing some memorable performances, and an interesting twist ending - or two! On the down side, the whole sub-lot with the Indians is a distraction and rather prolongs the intensity of the finale.
Look out for a brief-but-wonderful scene where Gibson and Glover exchange glances during a bank robbery, an obvious reference to their work with director Donner on the successful Lethal Weapon movies.
