NEXT OF KIN (1989) ***

When the Mob kills Chicago (but hillbilly at heart) cop Patrick Swayze's brother (Bill Paxton), his other backwoods brother (Liam Neeson) seeks revenge. Swayze wants the law to handle it, but when Neeson is killed too, Swayze gets the whole hillbilly clan out for justice. There's a good hillbilly vs. Mafia gunfight-in-the-cemetary finale. What makes this film so fun to watch is the sheer number of actors who went on to bigger and better things in small roles. Swayze who was big at the time is no longer as famous as co-stars Paxton, Neeson, Helen Hunt and Ben Stiller. From director John (Raw Deal) Irvin.
