Martin Sheen's brother (in this case, truly it is, in real life) is killed by a local sheriff, who enjoys pushing speeders off a cliff 2 miles from the state line.
Martin drives a beautiful sports car, with "The California Kid" painted on the side, hence the name of the movie.
This movie has at least 5 times where no words are spoken for several minutes, an interesting feature.
Young Nick Nolte does a good job, especially after his brother drives off that infamous cliff. Stuart Margolin plays an understated role as a deputy sheriff. And Michelle (Mamas and the Papas) Phillips does an OK job as a waitress.
This is a satisfying movie.
