AGAINST ALL ODDS (1984) ***

This remake of Out of the Past has been updated for the Monday Night Football set.  James Woods sends his former teammate Jeff Bridges to find his runaway lover Rachel Ward.  Things get complicated when Bridges falls in love with her too.  Murder, extortion, and blackmail follow.  Exotic locations and great performances by Woods and Bridges make the overlong film watchable.  The scene where Bridges and Woods race their cars down a narrow stretch of road is the highlight.  Phil Collins sings the irritating theme song.  Co-stars Jane Greer and Richard Widmark were both in the original.  Directed by Taylor (Ray) Hackford.
