Interesting adventure tale, hampered by poor production values.
31 March 1999 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

Cochran and Stevens are brothers, pursued by the law through the dangerous Everglades, during the Civil War. The accent is on action as the duo encounter swamps, alligators, Seminole Indians and a captured white woman (Matthews). While the storyline is interesting, the obvious low budget and use of stock footage are distracting. An interesting artifact, considering the cast.
