This movie is one of the most entertaining I've ever seen. The plot, as can be determined by the other reviews, takes numerous twists and turns, and is enjoyable. What makes this movie so amazing though, are the performances turned out by two of the actors, Michael Kirner as the heroic "Rex Maynard", and Lorenz Schultz who is the mysterious character only known as "Murrays Agent". Mr. Kirner is by far the greatest "everyman" hero in movie history. His way of approaching and coping with every obstacle thrown at him in this movie make all other action heroes seem like absurd bad comic book figures in comparison. You cannot help but be swept inside Rex's head and experience his ordeal firsthand...a truly remarkable performance.
Lorenz Schultz plays the menacing, brooding bearded figure "Murrays Agent", who is a chilling shadow that stalks Rex at airports and speedways, and delivers mysterious phone messages to Rex's lovely wife, Linda. Not a major character but one played so effectively that he will remain locked in your head for weeks after seeing this. I admit I even kept thinking he was somehow out there, watching me too.... scary! The rest of the cast also shines, a testimony to director Fred Wilson, but also to the writer, Mr. Ralph Anders (why his work is not standard material in college lit. courses is beyond me). This movie is not easy to find, but is well worth the hunt for lovers of cinema.
