When an ex-CIA agent (Gene Hackman) is called out of retirement to escort a Soviet spy (Mikhail Baryshnikov) to Berlin for a prisoner trade with the Russians, it seems like business as usual. But when the former adversaries realise they’ve been double-crossed by their own governments, they must work together to uncover and destroy the double operatives within both the CIA and the KGB to win this intricate and deadly spy game.
Red Dawn opens with one of the most shocking scenes ever filmed; on a peaceful morning, through the windows of a high school classroom, students see paratroopers land on the varsity football field: the invasion of the United States has begun! As their town is overrun, eight teenagers escape to the mountains. Taking the name of their high school football team, the Wolverines, they wage unremitting guerrilla warfare in defence of their parents, their friends and their country.
Denzel Washington and Mimi Rogers star in this witty, romantic, entertaining and light-hearted whodunnit. Filled with spice and adventure, The Mighty Quinn is a delightful sunny Caribbean caper. Life in the easygoing Carribean is hard on Police Chief Xavier Quinn (Washington). Dubbed "The Mighty Quinn" by sarcastic islanders and nagged by a wife who'd rather he were babysitting, Quinn is suddenly thrust into action when his childhood friend Maubee (Robert Townsend) is accused of murder.
Forced to serach for his elusive friend, Quinn meets up with a colourful array of suspects, including the dead man's beautiful mistress (Rogers) who dreams of being a lounge singer, an eccentric voodoo sorceress with snakes in her parlour (Esther Rolle) and a mysterious American visitor with dubious intentions (M. Emmet Walsh from the Coen Brothers' Blood Simple).
