Kevin Costner stars with Anthony Quinn and Madeline Stowe in "Revenge," from 1990. Costner is Michael "Jay" Cochran, recently retired from the Navy, who goes on a vacation in Mexico. There, he visits an old friend, Tiburon Mendez (Quinn) - he had once flown him to Alaska on a hunting trip and the two remained friends. Cochran is unprepared for Tiburon's young beautiful wife Miryea (Stowe). It's not long before the two give in to their mutual attraction to one another. When Mendez learns of the affair, blood will be shed. This is a very bloody and violent movie, and I admit it's not my thing. I also found it stupid. First off, maybe the Costner character is dumb, but certainly Mendez' wife knows her husband is violent and possessive. He's also surrounded by all kinds of staff. So she has sex with another guy on the property? Then she says she's going on a trip for some reason when her husband will be traveling also. The plan is not to go on a trip but to run off for a tryst with Michael. A ten-year-old could have told her her husband is letting her hang herself. It gets mighty ugly. The person whose home I stayed at had already seen this film, liked it, and wanted me to see it. When I spotted Costner's dog, I was concerned and asked if anything happened to it. (For those queasy ones like myself, there is a website for this called doesthedogdie.com). Oh, he couldn't remember. Dog lovers - the dog gets shot. And believe me, the poor thing got off easy. Such a cheap plot point. A very good cast, but this movie is for macho men who like their women beautiful, their blood red, their violence graphic, and their guns at the ready. I'm not one of them.
