vigorous ride of revenge, friendship and violence in the south of Florida, a fast and powerful movie you will not want to miss...
"Gator " marks a time in that there were not limits for the pleasure, for the happiness and for the adventure! this film is a typical turn to the seventies, and it has as the protagonist the star who reigned absolute for this time and who is finally returning: Burt Reynolds. Seen today, of course " Gator " seems a simple film and with a weak story, but if we analyze the context of the time in what it was done, Gator " is memorable and, without a doubt, an entertaining film and that deserves to be watched! Burt Reynolds offers all his charm, all his talent, interpreting Gator McKlusky, a scoundrel who is forced by the policemen to infiltrate in the criminal organization of an old childhood friend, and discover evidences that will lead him to the prison. Jerry Reed, another great icon of the seventies, is excellent as Bama McCall, the boss of the organized crime who seems to be owner of the south of Florida, Lauren Hutton was never so pretty and nice, particularly in the scene in what she and Burt Reynolds are talking at the beach, at night, near of a bonfire. Gator " is a celebration of a time where everything was simpler, truer and tasty, it is a memorable and efficient film that, even after so many years, preserves the tension and unforgettable scenes . Watch " Gator ", it is not the best film of Burt Reynolds career, but it is one of the good ones!
