Follows the book, but not as interesting
13 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when it first came out. I had seen the novel in the base exchange and since I was sticking around base, I read it in a few days. Interesting characters and plot, a Deliverance type of ethical dilemma and the inclusion of some good actors, I thought it would be a good movie. I was disappointed at seeing many of the characters wooden and shallow, unlike their motivations in the book. Several of the characters were WWII vets, with a Vietnam vet thrown in. Interesting in the book, slow and dragging on screen. When the final encounter happens, it is well done and it was shocking to see. It was one of a series of movies made in the 70s with a stark realism to its look, but the story line was far-fetched. Nothing I have read or done would lead me to believe that the novel or the movie though were based upon Soviet spetznaz incursions from Canada into the U.S. Just a good novel not particularly well done to screen.
