C.Thomas Howell stars as a nameless man who returns to the small town where his hippie parents were killed ten years later, however this time he's armed and he's out for revenge in this solid low budget actioner which casts Howell in a good role as the vigilante kid. Some excellent editing and some entertaining fightscenes highlight the movie.
