Storyline

After doing five years in prison on a drug charge, Poke is returns to his hometown intent on taking his sweetheart Mary Lee (and their child) away with him to California. His plan hits a snag, however, when he discovers that since his incarceration, Mary Lee has taken up with Duke, the very sheriff who put Poke behind bars in the first place. Things turn even worse for Poke when he later witnesses Duke assassinating a local hispanic politician. Now with Duke out for his blood, Poke must choose to run for his life or make a stand.

SUSAN GEORGE SUPPORTED THIS FILM!
17 February 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Susan George gave an excellent performance in this film, over powering Timothy Bottoms, and Bo Hopkins. Susan George with her excellent British acting background gave class to this SMALL TOWN IN TEXAS. Lots of small town police corruption with daring bike and car racing and a close miss of a train. This film is going to be another classic film collection. It is worth viewing and the Texas locations and photography are fantastic.
