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."

  • 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

    By Uisge beatha
    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.
  • Great classic!

    I first saw this when I was 6 with my dad and we loved everything about it. I'm 13 now and we still repeat lines from it! Great film.
  • Classic, Playful and Hilarious! A must have!

    By Kstewskis
    This movie should go down as one of the most fun-filled, playful comedies featuring some of the most classic western character actors ever played. The "Maverick" character in the TV show made his living trying to swindle everyone else with his poker here everyone else is trying to swindle him! And he gets them back! This is non-stop hilarity at it's best, the cameos from days past will keep you on your toes, and the interplay between Gibson, Garner and Foster are priceless. This is one movie that takes top billing in my library whenever I need a quick "attitude adjustment." This is a movie you will never tire from...Thank you Burt! Maverick!
  • Good

    This movie was pretty good. The whole time i kept thinking about Sarah Palin and John McCain (you know, with them both being mavericks) lol.
  • Hilarious awesome poker movie!!

    Mel Gibson is at his best here, folks. The movie's waaay funnier and more clever than it lets on. James Garner, Jodie Foster, and Alfred Molina are all awesome in the mindblowing ride of a movie.
