1926. The Chinese Civil War. Drifter Ted Beaubien is captured and forced to witness his girlfriend's execution. He finally escapes and vows to avenge her death by taking on a deadly mission to buy guns abroad and smuggle them back. Arriving in his hometown, Ted is shocked to find his elderly mother and younger brother George are penniless. But time is running out, and before he can help them, he's got to get the guns. In setting up the deal, Ted meets and falls for the seductive nightclub owner Maud Ryan who introduces him to the treacherous gangsters who will sell him the artillery. For a gun-runner, falling in love is like pointing a pistol at your heart - and pulling the trigger! Written by
I like Kevin Costner, I really do. However, if I were him, I'd bury this unintelligible mess of a movie so far down on my resume it would take coal miners to find it. It has something to do with a drifter returning home to find the family fortune gone, and his brother in trouble with local gangsters. The drifter wants the money to finance a revolution in China for reasons that aren't made clear. Dreadfully slow and extremely bad.
