Watch it for the fun, else you'll be disappointed.
I for one would have liked to see Tommy Lee Jones snuff it in an honourable way at the end of this film, but it ain't gonna happen. Instead he gets shot in the stomach, only for the wound to magically heal five minutes later when he engages in an old-fashioned fist-fight with the chief villain. This villain is played with relish by a baldy Terry O'Quinn, familiar from THE STEPFATHER films. Jones himself is actually quite good and macho as the hero who will stop at nothing to protect his land, all brooding menace and silent intensity. Sadly the same cannot be said of Dee Wallace Stone, who is absolutely awful as Jones' whiny wife! Old timers Ben Johnson and Pat Hingle lend credibility to the proceedings, but in the end this is a bit of a wasted opportunity and never raises above average.
