Producer D. Constantine Conte described No Mercy (1986) as an exotic romantic thriller. Conte was involved in the development of the film's original screenplay with screenwriter James Carabatsos. Intrigued by the amalgam of suspenseful storytelling and vivid characterization in Carabatsos' first draft, director Richard Pearce and star Richard Gere quickly committed to the project. See more »
When Eddie and Michel are taking a shower in the shack, there's big smudge of dirt on Michel's face whenever the camera is close to her face. When the camera cuts wider to show Eddie as well, suddenly the smudge disappears. Then it reappears again. See more »
No Mercy is a great movie that offers a lot of action, a great cast of actors and actresses, a very haunting melody as the base music in the soundtrack, and additionally, some really beautiful scenery. All of the actors do a really great job portraying their characters and there is a lot of action and subtle bits that endear the movie watcher to the character played by Kim Basinger. Richard Gere was a very cool "tough cop" in this film and he was a real looker needless to say. I have seen this movie more than once and still think it is a really entertaining film. Lots to offer INCLUDING a great soundtrack that has eluded me all these years. I would appreciate any tip that would help me locate one of the "out of print" CD's of this soundtrack. I most definitely would pay a reasonable price. thanks!
