When Obra Eaker is driving Pusser's green 1974 Impala, a quick shot of the speedometer reveals it to actually be the speedometer on a Camaro, not an Impala. The '74 Impala had a long, linear speedometer, not the round-gauge type, shown in the shot. See more »

If anything ever happens to me. I want you to be sure to finish telling my story
18 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Walking Tall Part II is a worthy follow up to the original Walking Tall. Bo Svenson carries the big stick and he does so with a lot of authority. Of course since this is Hollywood they can't get the facts right so they hollywoodize it. the story is Buford is on the rampage looking for the People behind Pauline's death. Those people are starting to get scared. And they send an assassin out to finish the job. In the End Buford gets his information foils the assassin and finds the spy in his office. Not a bad movie as far as movies go. But this one was mostly a fictionalized account of Buford Pusser's life. Having read everything on Buford Pusser that I could get my hands on. I find the films are a great way to tell Buford's Legend. Worthwhile film. And A good solid story that'll keep you in your seat.
