I was pleasantly surprised by this little movie
9 March 2004 | by (Oberlin, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie out of curiosity for 2 reasons: 1. Michael Douglas' first movie role 2. Mercer Harris was billed above Peter Strauss. I found it to be most enjoyable, especially as I shared the anti-war sentiments expressed by main character. Nothing here spelled oscar winner, but on the whole it was well acted and had the proposed impact. I recommend it to anyone who is a Douglas fan, as he seemed to have a good time with this role. (and he is just so darn cute!) Peter Strauss as the "successful in spite of injury" older brother turns in a fair performance. Mercer Harris is quite effective as the friendly ranch hand, Luke. It is his performance that I was looking for, as I know him well and have watched his other movies prior to this one. Too bad he did not stay in Hollywood, he had a lot to offer.
