#869 Tequila Sunrise (1988)

Given its kick-ass name, I always took Tequila Sunrise for a hard boiled action thriller. Although there are certainly some action elements to it, the main focus is on a love triangle between a woman and two men; one of them a cop and one of them an alleged drug dealer.

Tequila Sunrise isn’t a bad movie — with this kind of budget and production team it really can’t be — but it just didn’t do anything for me. The plot is on the weak side and even the strong cast struggles to keep the script moving on. Instead of showing something exciting or memorable, the movie seems an endless stream of unimpressive macho dialogue yapped by its caricature like characters.

There’s an effort for getting the show running towards the last minutes to the movie, but it’s just too little, too late.
