Tommy Lee Jones,
That's what this is, the acting for the most part is quite poor, the scenery is lovely. There's plenty of shoot-em-up action and the plot is alright.
It's not really a stand out film though, it has some quite dark moments including some kids getting shot.
The video I watched it on was an old Pre-Cert (pre 1984 UK) rental video which only came in at a little over 80 minutes and it still felt a little long, but some of the cut material seemed to be some of the more extreme violence of the film, which I guess I'll never see as this film is so obscure to start with.
I bought it years ago for the rather stupid reason it had about the worst cover are ever, a still from the film where the camera is looking through the sights of a gun and seems to be about to miss someone bending over, that's it and the title Noon Sunday, doesn't really sell the movie.
As it is I should probably give the film a 2 out of 10 but I think due to some of the nicely dark elements which I'm sure would be enhanced in an uncut version I'll give it a 3.
