The movie tells the biography of the gangster Charles "Pretty Boy" Floyd (Fabian) who started his career young aged when he saw his father die and sought out revenge by killing his murderer during a fight.
This film is so historical inaccurate, it almost does not deserve to use the name of Charles Floyd. But then, it is so entertaining, that I think it earned this privilege. And, heck, it is more factual than many uses of Al Capone in movies and books, so in comparison this is a documentary!
Seriously, though, it is a pretty good film. Bank robberies, fights, a pretty food food fight scene (my favorite part of the film). What was holding it back? The music. The music was just too 1970s to really be appreciated today, and there was absolutely no need to use the same song four or five times in the movie. If this ever gets a decent DVD release, I hope someone tweaks the soundtrack.
That being said, a fine addition to the Larry Buchanan filmography. And you thought he only made cheesy horror and science fiction!
