In one of the most anticipated movies of 1994, boxoffice superstar Mel Gibson ("Lethal Weapon," et. al.) and two-time Academy Award-winner Jodie Foster ("The Accused," "Silence of the Lambs") are a dapper gambler and a seductive con woman in this slick Western based on the classic TV series. James Garner ("Murphy"s Romance," TV's "Rockford Files") -- the original Maverick -- James Coburn ("The Magnificent Seven," "Young Guns II"), Graham Greene ("Northern Exposure") and a slew of country singers co-star in this film by Richard Donner ("Superman," "Lethal Weapon" trilogy). The New York Times calls this "fast, funny, full of action...[it's] "Lethal Weapon" meets "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid." The Hollywood Reporter calls it "a fast-shuffling escapade of antic wit...a delightfully appealing, brainy comedy...[a] royal flush" and Variety says it's "exuberant...a whole new generation is about to discover the charm, wit and fun of Maverick."

  • Terrible

    Don't be fooled, this is not a good movie. I thought with Mel Gibson and Richard Donner it would be descent. Intead, it looks like somone dropped the ball big time..this movie is a complete bomb, no redeeming qualities. Bad acting, bad writing, bad directing.
  • A perennial favorite

  • B movie with A list stars

    This movie is okay but it never really hits any kind of stride. As Maverick was an ongoing TV series, one could have expected sequels, but the fact that there were none tells the story.
  • Ton of fun

  • Proof that TV westerns can be great movies

    You see this is how you do a movie adaptation of a TV series. You get yourself a compotent director, a good cast, and a good script. I applaud Richard Donner for making this fun adaptation of the classic 60's TV series. Mel Gibson, before going bat-crap crazy in the 2K's, was a fitting choice for the role of Bret Maverick. I am glad that James Garner, the original Maverick, got to have a part in this film. I was also glad that one of my favorite actors James Coburn was in this film too. Jodie Foster also does great with her role. The story feels like a great adaptation of the original TV series. Now......why didn't Barry Sonnenfield take this film as an example of how to do an adaptation of a TV western when he did the utter fail that is Wild Wild West? (I am seriously hoping for the series to come out on iTunes soon). I recommend this movie to fans of the original 60's TV western and western fans in general. So, check it out.

  • Great movie, but overpriced

    I love this movie and watched it on DVD often. I thought I'd get the digital file here as well but cant understand why so many of the movies on iTunes are $9.99 when they are in the Walmart DVD bargain bin for $3-$8. If its cheap on DVD, it should be cheap here too. Its only a data file for crying out loud.
