Other Detail(s) for 'The Gun'
27 March 2005 | by (Riverhead, L.I., New York) – See all my reviews

I merely wanted to add that this particular TV movie belongs to the MIA (missing in action) list. It was one of the many early features that was done for the ABC network's 'Movie of the Week' programming segment. I only saw it once, but the central theme stuck in my memory even though I had long forgotten the names and/or faces of the actors who starred in it. I felt the movie made a powerful anti-gun statement without being too preachy or over-the-top. Regardless of how one might feel about the issue of gun control, this television movie was well-done! It's a cliché, but they truly don't make movies like that anymore. Too bad that a lot of these features, especially from the ABC network, have been lost or misplaced.
