I found Maverick to be witty, charming, and almost satirical in the way it portrayed the Old West. Mel Gibson steals the show as the eponymous Bret Maverick, giving a wholesome, yet sarcastic performance. The supporting cast were great as well, most notably the late James Garner, who portrayed the character of Maverick on the 1950's TV show of the same name. I definitely think it's worth a watch and that everyone will find something to enjoy from it.
