Maverick Poster
Primary Location: First Saw:In Theatre Saw at/with: With Greta
Rating: PG Year: 1994 Category: Drama
Director: Richard Donner Time: 127 min. Writer: William Goldman

Mine: Much better than expected, top notch cast does well. Some interesting role reversals. Enjoyable if kind of lite. Could be a bit wittier. Not quite the magic of the TV show.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Lackadaisical update of the fondly remembered 60s TV show relies heavily on personal charm to carry a thin storyline that moseys along much too slowly--and much too long. Gibson is fun as a wily cardsharp on his way to a big-stakes poker game, and the cast is peppered with familiar faces from the world of vintage TV Westerns and contemporary country music; look for a couple of cameos by stars of earlier movies from director Donner. Garner, who starred in the old TV series, is cast here as a marshal. Script by William Goldman. Panavision.
