Veteran cowboy actor Jim Davis plays a henchman for J.W. Ewing (Jason Robards), an unscrupulous rancher who hopes to strike oil on his land. Immediately after completing this film, Davis signed on to play a character named J.R. Ewing Sr., a.k.a. "Jock" Ewing, a Texas oil baron, and father of the notorious J.R. Ewing Jr. (Larry Hagman) on the TV show Dallas (1978). Davis played the role on "Dallas" until his death in 1981. See more »

I strongly suggest to watch something else instead of this crap. It's a total failure considering the talents involved here director Alan Pakula ("All the presidents men") and stars like James Caan ("Godfather") and Jane Fonda ("On golden pound").
The story itself is cliché and has been done many times before in westerns or action movies. This movie actually doesn't want to be a western or action movie. It wants to be a character driven drama . Unfortunately the characters aren't all that interesting. The movie is also too long and moves too slowly. This is one badly directed movie. The acting isn't bad , but I couldn't really care about any of the characters. The main villain (Jason Robards) is also uninteresting and not scary at all. There is some action near the end , but it's hardly anything memorable.
I would rather watch "Nowhere to run" with Van Damme. It was better directed and more entertaining than this. Not amazing , but watchable enough. This ? This is just boring.
I give it 1/10.
