The FBI, the Mafia, and the Yakuza (Japanese gangsters) fight to the death in this nonstop action thriller starring Russell Crowe (Gladiator). FBI agent Zack Grant (Crowe) sends beautiful rookie operative Seiko (Kelly Hu) on a sting operation against the depraved, skinhead son of a Mafia kingpin. Little does he know that Seiko is on a revenge mission of her own. This bloody situation escalates into all-out war, as the Mafia kingpin, Frank Serlano (Michael Lerner), and the head Yakuza, Yuji (Etsushi Toyokawa), get into the act. Grant is forced to go renegade from the bureau when Serlano kidnaps his young son, a plot point that certainly raises the story's emotional stakes. During an exciting airplane hijacking sequence, we meet Mary (Helen Slater), a dizzy blonde flight attendant who introduces an unexpected note of comic relief to the proceedings (along with a touch of romance). Crowe is convincing in Dirty Harry mode, bringing his characteristic intensity and empathy to the role. It's fun to watch a former Miss Hawaii, Kelly Hu, display her martial arts mastery, and the performances of Slater and Toyokawa are a cut above the action-genre norm. Still and all, No Way Back falls squarely into the "guilty pleasure" movie category. Writer-director Frank A. Cappello (American Yakuza), provides plenty of slam-bang, shoot-'em-up action, plus enough nail-biting suspense to keep you on the edge of your seat. --Laura Mirsky

3.0 out of 5 stars If collecting the lot... Nov. 26 2002
Format:DVD
While I am a huge fan of Crowe's... this was NOT one of his better performances.
There is plenty of action, more than average suspense but the dialogue is lacking greatly.
Phrases and sentences that just don't make a lot of sense permeate the entire script. More specifically, I found myself saying "would they REALLY say that in this situation???".
Russell drops in and out of his "American" accent, which is a painful reminder of the fact that this is one of the earlier films in his now stalwartly coral of films.
STILL, that all being said... if you are collecting the lot of them... it is worth the purchase if not for anything other than to be able to see just how far he has come.
Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Crowe acting like himself or is he REALLY acting? March 25 2003
Format:DVD
I like this movie simply because it was entertaining. There's no deep drama, brainiac prose or intense emotional scenes here. It's just a story about your average cop with a major attitude problem who has a somewhat strained relationship with his 7(?) year old son. The reasons as to why there's a seeminly lack of affection from this single father to his son is explained through poignant flashbacks. The movie is LA Confidential meets Rush Hour. I found Crowe's character humorous, simply because he's so grumpy and prickly, one wonders if it's possible for anyone to be that rude! The ending is uncharacteristically endearing for a movie of this genre. Definitely a must see for Crowe fans.

1.0 out of 5 stars There is "No Way Back"... unless you return it June 29 2002
Format:DVD
From the typical action movie title that slips out of your memory within days to the typical overused clichés, I felt like I had seen this one before. Surely Crowe is a good actor, but he isn't exerting himself in this blah flick, and he definitely can't save it from the suspense B-list (at best). There is really no reason to buy this DVD, even with the one talented actor in the cast.

2.0 out of 5 stars HUGE Russell Crowe fan but hated this movie Feb. 8 2002
By jbug10
Format:VHS Tape
I have almost all of Russell Crowe's movies, but unfortuneatly this may be his worst. Everything about it goes against what Russell prides himself in making a movie. His charactar's dialogue is contrived and unrealistic. He is famous for battling directors when it comes to the integrity of his charactar, but he didn't win this battle. His co-star Helen Slater played a stupid girl with stupid lines, again a co-star's charactar the Russell must have had little patience for. I can overlook a bad movie and still enjoy Russell, but I wasn't able to in this one.

2.0 out of 5 stars No Way Back ... Thank Heaven July 7 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Stupid story. Since when do skinheads work for the Mafia? And how did the Japanese get involved? When is the last time a Mafia king-pin kidnapped an FBI agent's son? Nevertheless, Helen Slater saves this from the re-cycle bin. She is sweet and good-natured and her scenes with Russell Crowe are the best part of the movie. (Get a hair-cut and a shave Russell. I got sick of watching you push your hair out of your eyes, only to have it fall back into disarray.) We saw L. A. Confidential and liked the three leads, Crowe, Spacey and Pearce, so we have been shopping for more of their work. We should have passed on this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars FBI agent, widowed father in an action filled fix July 25 2001
Format:DVD
This is not Crowe's best OR worst movie. I found a lot of heart in this story of a father trying to save his son, by going against his bosses, to surrrender an alleged murderer to the father of his victim. Good shoot out up front, good one in the middle, good ending. Great AZ location shoot!
Helen Slater added much humor to a serious story, and Russell plays well with her character. Gives him a chance to smirk and crack wise. (Note the KIWI Mary carves for Zack).
Anyone notice how there always seems to be some reference to Australia or NZ in every Crowe non-Australian or NZ movie? Worth a look for the Crowe fan. I love the long hair & beard.

4.0 out of 5 stars Crowe honing skills in "No Way Back" May 27 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Crowe displays his developing skills as an action hero, giving us a glimpse of what got him an Oscar in "Gladiator". As an renegade-style FBI agent, he takes us on a hot pursuit where he'll risk anything. Helen Slater (City Slickers) provides some terrific comic relief. There's plenty of action and fun making this film a great watch. It's a must have for collectors of Russel Crowe movies and worth your money for action viewers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Russell Crowe, need I say more? Feb. 28 2001
By "bsu10"
Format:DVD
This is not rocket science material. It is escapism and nothing more. The two saving graces in this movie are Russell Crowe and Helen Slater. The banter between them is worth every second. They argue about humming and who the best starship captain is. I would have liked to see more character development between Slater and Crowe. The ending left a lot to be desired, but hey, one can't be too critical of any movie with Russell Crowe.
