Great thrilling human drama
21 April 1999 | by (Sacramento, California) – See all my reviews

This was a movie I had the pleasure of finding one day on video at a multi-media outlet store on a summer evening in 1995. It is about a man who shot his wife's lover not only over their affair, but also the decline of his marriage and subsequent family life as well. Having been a life-long David Jannsen fan since the classic TV series, "The Fugitive", it was great to see him on the run in something other than a maniacal search for the one-armed man. Jannsen was a master at always being able to evoke deep, hard emotion in ways few HUMANS have been able to, and just as it worked so well as Dr. Kimble, so it does here as Adrian Vico. Equally impressive is Yaphett Kotto--another personal favorite--as Ernie Green, the cab driver who subsequently becomes a reluctant hostage when Vico discloses his plans for revenge to him. Ernie is quite sympathetic, yet only willing to take so much from the gun-toting Adrian (who has promised to use his gun to stop anybody--the police, Ernie, etc.--who gets in his way.) Though this is a television movie from 1970, it is a timeless piece that would work well even on the verge of a new millennium. For the problems of an Adrian Vico are quite common place in today's society, especially with family values being placed so highly by so many people. Although these two co-stars were men, it could also go both ways--with a man and a woman, or even two women as well. And just as the cast was interracial here, it could go over in that same vernacular even today. And the couple could even be gay or lesbian as well as heterosexual. A must see, not just for these two splendid actors, but also for what can happen to a man (or even a woman) who feels all is lost, has nothing to lose and is willing to do anything it takes--even commit murder--to exact a measure of revenge against those he feels wronged him.
