Whoa, What a movie!
25 December 2001 | by (Deadville, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie on 12-24-01, I saw the video in stores, but never got around to renting it. Boy, did I make a mistake. I thought it was a pretty damn good movie. It's one ultimate revenge movie. It's about a guy and his family at the wrong place at the wrong time. These crooks get away from the cops and take control of this guys vehicle with his family still in it. After they get where they are safe they end up killing his wife and daughter, and they thought they killed him as well. But that was their mistake. Anyway life goes on, and he ends up in the far North, with no one around except his dog, and a handicapped radio man and his GrandDaughter. But for some odd reason these same bad people end up there in the next town over,( maybe it was FATE? )and rob a bank roll,and after the cops disable the getaway chopper, they go down just over the hill from this cabin. They kill the man in the wheel-chair hurt the hero and use the GrandDaughter to lead them out of this rugged area. Now that he remembers that these people are the same ones that killed his family, it Pay-Back time!. With some help from the big Fred Williamson ( also the Director of the movie ) they go after these weirdo's, and will not stop until the last one is toast. The Ending you will LOVE!!!!!!.
