No Mercy is a 1986 action crime thriller directed by Richard Pearce. In the film, Eddie Jillette (Richard Gere) is a renegade Chicago cop. He is partnered with Joe Collins (Gary Besaraba), a laid back guy who often lets Eddie take the lead on cases. When Eddie and Joe go undercover posing as hitmen, their sting goes terribly wrong and Joe ends up dead. Losado (Jeroen Krabbe) is a local crime boss and Eddie blames him for his partner's death. Losado's girlfriend, Michel Duval (Kim Basinger), was at the scene of the crime and Eddie is not sure how she is involved. He does not know if she is running from Losado, or if she is working for him, so he brings her along on his mission. With little evidence to go on, Eddie wanders deep into the Louisiana bayou to find the person or persons who are responsible for his partner's murder.
