I don't like John Irvin's movies very much. Such movies as "Robin Hood", "City of Industry" and "Dogs of war". But there were also ones that I liked. This is "Raw deal" and "Freefall". I can't say that "Freefall" is the great movie, but I watched this one with a big interest. It's little unusual when Eric Roberts acts a good guy and Jeff Fahey is the bad guy. But they are both acted well. There's also strong sexual episode between Eric Roberts and Pamela Gidley. So I think the people who will like a good action will like this movie also.
