The River Wild

Meryl Streep, action star.

Better believe it, as the mistress of 10,000 accents gets down ‘n dirty, battling sleazy criminal Kevin Bacon in the great outdoors.

Taking her family on a whitewater rafting trip meant to mend her marriage, Streep instead crashes into a pack of robbers on the run, including a fairly young John C. Reilly.

The leader of the bad boys is Bacon, oozing charm just long enough to get close, before he reveals his true, darker intentions.

One of the first films to hit big in my video store days, it’s a great blast from the past.
