PROBABLY ROBERT GINTY'S BEST FILM
16 March 2004 | by (BOLTON, ENGLAND) – See all my reviews

Of all the films Robert Ginty made following The Exterminator, this is probably the best. The writing is tight, the direction even tighter, (Hessler was a quality director), and Robert Ginty was surprisingly good as the mysterious drifter who turns up in a one horse town and falls foul of the local fascist cops. Best of all, the love interest is played by Kathy Shower. (The producers certainly make the most of her assets, TWO shower scenes). Controversially filmed in South Africa, as was Red Scorpion, the desert landscape could certainly pass for Arizona or Texas, but the accents of some of the supporting players grates. An undemanding, but well made action thriller.
