    No Way Out is probably Kevin Costner's only good movie. No, wait. I take that back. He did a fabulous job in Revenge with Anthony Quinn, too.

          You know, this was remade in 1987 with Kevin Costner? It was called

    No Way Out and they turn the story into a Cold War drama, set in the

    Pentagon, IIRC.
