Gary Busey is no actor-He is dynamite.Firing through this movie like a man long used to bottling lightening and still loving it; even the most casual observer will be incapable of indifference. His turn here as Ted Andrews,(a Vietnam vet with a heart of gold that however tolerates no nonsense)is as nonsensical as it is enthralling.But by goodness is it enthralling. The plot, it has to be said, is somewhat unfeasible: 'Man talks his ex-wife into accepting that their children ought to accompany him on an unnecessary and dangerous Journey to Australia to sell his luxury Yaught. On route said Yaught is attacked by a bunch of evil blah blah blah blah ad nauseum' - However, in this wonderful world of Gary Busey, such things as plot and feasibility seem quite peripheral and simply nothing to worry about. In fact, i challenge anyone to consider in a cool manner such rational things whilst faced with the captivating, rich and insane flicker sitting just behind Gary Busey's eyes. Absolutely brilliant!
