No Way Out

This film may have on of the best surprise/ twist endings of all time. What is that ending you ask? I’d be a horrible critic if I gave that away. I will saw that despite only Kevin Costner receiving any major billing fro this film it has an outstanding cast. Sean Young is the stunning scarlet at the heart of this film. Gene Hackman plays the protagonist and the Antagonist BOTH very well. Which is he in this film? I dare not say you have to see it to find out. Gerald Patton may not be a marquee name but you will recognize him in this movie filmed early in his still running career. This plot is pound pulsing from start to finish. It will keep you on the edge of your seat and all those other cheezy clichés. This 1987 film may not be on your DVD shelf but it is worth renting from Netflix right away. Grade A

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
