The grass fire is started by a lighter, yet spreads too rapidly and appears to have multiple ignition points. One shot shows oily, black smoke indicating petrol/diesel was used to fan flames. See more »
one of films only for fans. and not for every fan. because it is a real delight to admire Liv Ullmann , James Mason or Charles Bronson acting. but not in this case. first - the roles are only cages for crush the potential of each actor. the second - the story is not only well - known but almost boring. the past invading the present and events far by the same confrontation from Les Miserables. so, a predictable story, the same fights and tension, bad boy who becomes the good guy , the old fellows looking revenge. all as a ball from different rags. short , a B movie and this status represents the real problem because only memory remains the flour mask of James Mason and the pain of Liv Ullmann in a more than uncomfortable role.
