Fascinating outdoors and Richard Harris fighting enemies and wildlife
17 June 2005 | by See all my reviews

The movie narrates as Richard Harris is attacked by a bear and is abandoned for his mates who are carrying a boat with furs to civilization. The misfit group is commanded by the paranoid John Huston and they are pursued by Indians. Harris survives and will face down lots of risks , dangers and adventures and he sets off in pursuit, trying to execute his revenge.

In the picture there are action western , thrills , tension, spectacular struggles and riveting landscapes . The movie belongs to the Western genre that made during the 70s as central theme 'the fight of a man against natural environment', such as : ¨Jeremiah Johnson ( by Sidney Pollack)¨,¨the man called horse(Eliott Silverstein)¨ and ¨Return of a man called Horse(Irwin Keshner)¨. The highlights of the movie are the surrealist trip of the ship amongst the snowy land with a mast in cross-shape under an impressive musical background by Johnny Harris and the survival fight facing off wolves , bear, and Indians . Interpretation of actors is top notch , but especially John Huston is frankly well. The supporting cast is formed by important secondaries as the veteran Henry Wilcoxon (the crusades), James Dooham(Star Trek) and Percy Herbert (Tobruk), among others . Gerry Fisher cinematography is awesome, like are reflected on the glimmer and breathtaking scenarios . The picture is well directed by Richard C. Sarafian . The flick will appeal to natural sets enthusiasts and Richard Harris fans. Rating: 6,5 . Good, worthwhile seeing.
