Maverick Movie Review, Watch Trailer Online
Directed by Richard Donner
Starring: Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster, James Garner, Graham Green
Maverick can be called classics of poker genre. The movie is imbued with the spirit of adventures in the Wild West. The part of Maverick is acted by a magnificent actor Mel Gibson, who was just starting his career.
The story tells about a crook and a talented poker player trying to cheat his fate. The film is about Maverick’s attempts to get money to, at any cost, get into the five-card stud tournament held on the steamer Louisiana. Along with him there traveled a charming swindler Annabel (Jodie Foster) and Sheriff Zane Cooper (James Garner), who did not like Maverick at all.
Though the movie is quite old and there are not many different special effects, an incredible cast and staging fill it with adventurism, combining poker game and the spirit of the Wild West. So “Maverick” is the movie that is worth watching.
