KEVIN Costner was just on the brink of mega-stardom when No Way Out was released in 1986. He'd just drawn major interest playing Elliot Ness in Brian De Palma's The Untouchables, and his portrayals of Lieutenant Farrell in No Way Out and ageing baseball player Crash Davis in Ron Shelton's Bull Durham would establish him as the romantic lead of the 1980s.15 Oct 1993 - 12:00am
