Writer 'Max Kleven (I)' intended the part of young Bobby Bellows to be played by his son. However, his son said that he didn't want to do it, so instead Kleven cast a neighbor's son in the role. See more »

Sheriff Jethro Pough:
I found out who this fella is. His name's Kyle Hansen, just like it said on his jacket. He was in the psycho ward at the Army Hospital in Mobile. Looks like he had a pretty rough time in Vietnam. It appears that he was with a secret unit of the Special Forces. He was captured twice, and escaped twice. Last Fall he was given up for dead after no one had seen him for eight months. He finally walked out of the jungle ...

This film is okay from what I remember of it. Unfortunately, it is not all that much seeing as how it has not come on television in many years and I have never seen a DVD of it. Heck, I never even knew the title of this movie and had the hardest time finding it on this site. I remember it having a bit of humor in it so I had added comedy to part of the search criteria and that is what threw off my search for the longest. Then I looked up Dirk Benedict as I was sure he was the guy and I finally found this title. Like I said I remember this one being a bit humorous at times, but like in Rambo it is about a Vietnam vet being treated badly by a small town. Which like I have said before in my review of "First Blood" and "Tank" makes little sense to me. There may have been a hatred of veterans of wars by those on the coasts and such, but usually the small towns embrace those who serve their country. This one though has him more of a drifter and looking rather filthy so I can see it a bit more here as rednecks do tend to act stupid like the ones that started the whole mess at that restaurant. The movie is a bit one note, usually involving the local law and such trying to capture the guy then he ends up busting some heads. Nothing like what is seen in "First Blood" where traps are set and spikes get stuck in a dude's legs. Somewhat good movie, but it needed some work too.
