An interesting look at early Sly
11 August 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: A young Sly Stallone plays a sixties radical who must choose between his love for a beautiful country girl and his loyalties to a terrorist group planning to bomb a Manhattan skyscraper.

This movie had all unknown actors, including a then unknown Sly, he looks really youthful and for me his performance shows early promise.

It starts with Sly hitchiking, stopping to feed a horse, before finally getting a lift to New York. Real life war footage is mixed with a guy singing a protest song " what are we fighting for". A random conversation about hamburger sales that wouldn't look out of place in a Tarantino movie later, Sly meets a guy in the street, it's revealed "everything is in place", and that Sly used to have a beard ("a lot happens in a year") as a movie It's OK. not great quality on my DVD, and the audio is out in places, which is annoying.

It's a bit slow, (I was tempted to turn it off after 20 minutes to do some ironing) despite a short running time it really feels like much, much longer. But it does have a plot, and takes the time to build the tension. With some reworking and a decent soundtrack, this could be a decent 70's thriller, but as it is, it's very cheap and only my devotion to Sly got me all the way through it...wonder if he could actually watch this movie now a days.

However Sly's performance is brilliant at conveying the confusion of the times. The end is a very emotional one for Sly as he's seen stumbling through fields, It also has a beautiful soundtrack (not counting the 70's horror music) with some good songs.

I can see why some people may not get all the way through this movie, I would like to know how many people actually paid to see this one when it was first released.
