An Early Effort From Jonathan Demme
14 December 2000 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

This standard but reasonably diverting revenge/action drama is an early effort from writer/director Jonathan Demme, who would go on to Oscar greatness years later with "Silence Of The Lambs." The movie delivers all the ingredients one would expect from B-Movie producer Roger Corman PLUS a quietly effective performance from Peter Fonda as a family man who is pushed to the limits when a strip-mining tycoon tries to bully his way into taking over Fonda's father's stretch of farm land. It's nothing you probably haven't seen before, but it's solidly done and Fonda makes for a great low-key hero worth rooting for. *** stars
