Goofs

After blowing up the laboratory and making his way to escape, Dan kidnaps a guy who is forced to take him to the military base. In the car, the news on the radio tells that Dan is the main suspect of the laboratory attack because he wanted to revenge his son's death. Such news is strange in the movie's context because during most part of the movie the army was trying to cover up the story about possible victims of the gas leaking; and Dan hasn't talked to anyone about his son's death except to one doctor; so it's never explained about how the media got the news.

Tragic Melodrama.
15 September 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

George C. Scott both stars in and directs this melodrama, as he plays a rancher who, while out camping with his son, discovers that they were accidentally sprayed with an experimental gas, that has killed his son and livestock, and sends him to the hospital, where he learns that the military was behind it, and after being frustrated by their stonewalling, decides to take matters in his own hands, even though he has not escaped the effects of the poisoning...

Though Scott gives a first-rate performance, and is ably supported by costars Richard Basehart, Martin Sheen & Barnard Hughes, this film ultimately fails because the father goes so far off the deep end with his revenge, killing the innocent, that he loses any sympathy, and the film ends inconclusively, and unsatisfactorily. A failure at the time, though can be seen on DVD from Warner Archive, for curiosity's sake.
