Pleasantly surprised .. there are some big names in this movie. Patrick Swayze, Liam Neeson, Adam Baldwin, Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton, Ben Stiller and a few more .. never pictured Liam as a hillbilly .. well done Liam .. well done <3
Comments pending.
From a redneck (not hillbilly) point of view, this was a work of art in a poetic justice kind of way. It was action packed, kind of predictable, but wonderful. One of P. Swayze's best performances. Highly recommended to any fan of his and action movies.

(JOHN IRVIN, 1989)

Truman Gates is a good old boy working as a police officer on the mean streets of Chicago. His little brother, Gerald, has followed him into the city and works as a truck driver. One night Gerald's truck gets hijacked, robbed, and Gerald gets beaten to death. Truman's family does not feel that he is doing enough to bring Gerald's killers to justice. Truman's older brother, Briar, moves into Chicago to take justice into his own hands. Truman must investigate the murder while keeping Briar from causing more harm than good.

"That name mean anything to you?"
"It means I got the right place."

John Irvin, director of The Dogs of War, Raw Deal, Hamburger Hill, and Widows' Peak, delivers Next of Kin. The storyline in this action picture is better than anticipated. The interactions between characters are both entertaining and comical. The dramatic/emotional scenes worked better than expected. Patrick Swayze, Liam Neeson, Adam Baldwin, Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton, Ted Levine, and Ben Stiller all deliver solid performances.

"They're nothing. They plow rocks for a living."
"Interesting; the same thing was said about our own people in Sicily."

The airborne reference, Willie's ultimatum, Gerald's beating, the deer head in the fridge, the archery lesson, the stripped car scene, Briar shooting up the arcade, Briar alluding the mob when they discover his apartment, the brotherly bar fight, the "scuzz bucket" conversation, Jessie having red paint thrown in her face, Briar purchasing the shotgun from the bar tender, the call home to inform the family Briar has been killed, Briar's ambush, and Joey's demise were amongst the better portions of the film.

"You ain't seen bad yet...but its coming."

Next of Kin is one of the two Swayze films I actually enjoy (Road House being the other). The interactions between characters was believable, and the action scenes were enjoyable. Many aspects of the film are clich
How much stupidity can be thrown in to one movie? Well, just check this hillbilly crap fest to find out. Liam Neeson is the only actor here that does anything worthwhile. Movies like this reminds me why I was never a Swayze fan.
Men luv this ?? It is great .. Am I Wrong ??
