Often overlooked, beautifully made film.
4 September 2001 | by (New Orleans, La..) – See all my reviews

Very well made film by little known director and writer. Mr. Pierce and Mr. Smith have given us a great film. Good acting by a well mixed cast. Very good sound effects. Fantastic cinematography. Good film for every one to see except the very young. Life lessons to be learned included. Good against evil. Is vengeance the answer? It takes us on a trip to find out the answer to right and wrong. I have seen most of Mr. Pierce's films and this is his best. I hope he is still around to give us more films of this type.
