If you looking for a movie with talented actors at acting this is the movie you got to see. If you want to watch a movie with some comody mixed with crime and action with a touch of romance this is the one for you. I am not a huge fan of action movies that always have to have love in the air but this movie isn't bad with the plot it has that the action and romance fall into. If I and other reviewers give this movie five stars you should believe and say so yourself.

This is a unique movie that somehow manges to work, Mel Gibson who at the time had just come off the 1st "Lethal Weapon" tried to do somthing different & did, In tis he is Dale McKussic, a drug dealer in what appears to be Malibu or Santa Monica, that just can't seem to get out of the business, Kurt Russell is his old High School pal who is now the head of Narcotics for L.A. county, that for personal reasons doesn't want to bust McKussic, but is pressured by the DEA led by J.T. Walsh, it is apparent that Walsh & Russell can't stand each other, Michelle Pfreiffer only complicates things by being a resturaunt owner that Gibson has a thing for, sensing that she might know somthing Russell attempts to get to know her better, they begin a courtship & what follows is a love-triangle, with Gibson winning out in the end, Carlos (Raul Julia) is Gibson's supplier that is coming to town, unbeknownst to Russell & Walsh, he is a also a DEA special agent, Robert Towne wrote & directed this complicated story, but somehow he makes it work, especially with his three leads, as Russell & Gibson face-off, with Russell in a constant battle of loyalty to his job or friend, Prfeffer in a constant battle over who she like more, Gibson or Russell, & Gibson's constant struggle with loyalty to Carlos or Russell, just your typical Santa Monica beach story, that somehow mangages to work, one of the best movies from the 80's.

I saw this movie when it was originally released in the early 1980s, and thought it GREAT, simply superb. I definitely remembered Kurt and Michelle appearing in it, but I had completely forgotten that it was an early Melvin Gibson flick. At this stage of his career, even for his exemplary "The Road Warrior," Melvin presented a rather low-key stage presence. Melvin had not yet perfected the face-making, eye-rolling, occasional chicken-cackling histrionic techniques that imbued his "Lethal Weapon" series with such Oscar-quality richness.
Melvin Gibson fans will enjoy seeing this, a snippet from Melvin's earlier days and a testimony to how much Melvin's acting stature has grown since then. He is a Theater Titan, a National Treasure of American Cinema. Melvin Gibson is what other actors such as Lawrence Olivier, Marlon Brando and Buddy Hackett only DREAMED of becoming.

Saw this movie at the theatre,beleive it or not,
fell in love with this movie from the get go, what more can
this movie offer you, California,Sun,Beaches,Good Food,and
of course Drugs...
The movie has twists and turns, it could possibly be a real life
role, that of Dale M, real drug dealers during late 80's and
early 90's really lived like this, not like (Scarface).
LOW KEY...ON THE BEACH.
Robert Towne, could not have scripted a better screenplay
or story.
It's a story with values,characters,
friends.
I can promise you, you will go to the Blockbuster store
the next day and start looking up other (Towne),(Russell) (Pfeiffer) & of course (Gibson) films,
and start eating at Chic Los Angeles Italian Eateries.
This is an independant film , before they became popular,
my hat also goes off to: Mr.Mount who brought us Dale,Nick,
Joanne,Carlos, for all of us to enjoy....thanks Thom.
enjoy it.

I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! I saw Tequila Sunrise in the theater and was blown away by how stylish and beautiful this film is. I am an admitted Mel junkie and a Michelle Pfeiffer fan but it's the supporting cast that stand out here. Kurt Russell should be such a bigger star than he is. He is spectacular here and a standout among the big names. My favorite character is played by the late Raul Julia. He is inspiring as both a serious and comic element in the film. If you haven't seen this yet then you're missing out. What a great old-fashioned mystery/love story but played with modern flair.

...is how I view this film by writer Robert Towne (Chinatown, Personal Best, etc.), who also directs here. Tequila Sunrise is a wonderful, layered neo-noir set in the South Bay area of Los Angeles. Others have criticized this film for being confusing, but at its core, it is a solid character based melodrama laced with a little ambiguity and ever-moving boundaries. Just about everyone in this film is not quite what you'd assume. If you like films that need close watching, with intricate character motives--regardless of clear moral distinctions--this is it.
Set in the 1980's, T.S. is a story of deceit, and betrayal, but primarily friendships. Mel Gibson plays Dale (Mac) McKussic, a retired South Bay cocaine smuggler of legendary proportions. Gibson is one actor who plays many hero types on-screen, but who is not afraid to convey the darker aspects of a character. Many other big names in Hollywood wouldn't take on this type of role. Here Mac wants to stay out of the drug business for a more normal life. But, as he puts it, "nobody wants me to quit."
Not so much opposing him, but being the flip side of a morally dubious coin, is Lt. Nick Frescia, who heads up L.A. Sheriff's drug enforcement unit. The vastly underrated Kurt Russell plays this character as a smart, slick operator capable of breaking the law when it helps him enforce it. Like Mel, Kurt is quite capable of playing the ambiguous lead (and make you like/hate him at the same time).
To really begin to understand these the two leads, though, southern Cal native Robert Towne gets to sprinkle some marvelous, sharp dialogue to their history. Friends since youth (and probably long time rivals), these two veered to opposite, but parallel paths by an incident alluded to in early character conversations.
