Average revenge flick
17 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was directed by none other than 'The Hammer' himself, Fred Williamson who also happens to appear in this in a small role as the resolute town Sheriff.

The plot is your run of the mill, staple revenge scenario wherein the hero (Miles O'Keefe) seeks violent retribution upon a group of sadistic psychos who previously brutally murdered his wife and child and left him for dead.

Yep, you've seen it all before and this film doesn't strive to break any new ground which is a bit of a shame.

To be fair, Williamson acquits himself fine behind the camera and contrary to many of the reviews on here, the actors do probably as best as could be done given the limited scope of the material and the stereotypical nature of the characters they found themselves lumbered with.

In fact the biggest criticism I would lay against this film is that after all the killing and misery the miscreants wreck upon so many people throughout the movies running time, their final demises are completely unspectacular and unsatisfactory. I had exactly the same problem with Death Wish 2 wherein after all the brutality the bad guys inflicted upon so many innocents, their deaths were ultimately too quick and merciful i.e simply being shot or electrocuted. This disequilibrium leaves a distinctively sour taste in ones mouth. Come on Hollywood, let's see a film where the bad guys really SUFFER!!!

Overall then, whilst the film reviewed here is not an unwatchable affair by any stretch of the imagination, it certainly falls far short of an enthralling watch and is decidedly average at best.
