If you're a David Carradine fan, this is a must see!!!
6 December 2003 | by (San Jose, CA) – See all my reviews

From what I understand this film was made in the nineties and just recently released. I bought it the other day as I had just seen Kill Bill and was in the mood for more David Carradine. Needless to say this film did not disappoint!

Direction and writing are competent. This makes me wonder why this film was never released before this; possibly some Hollywood politics being played, or maybe it just sat on the shelf, but, who cares. It's out now, and I for one am grateful.

David played a great country western star on the verge of an "overnight success" and Mariel Hemingway, who I always love to watch, plays a girl brought in by "James Lee Springer's" manager to keep him in line. James' story on the road to success is a long one and asks the question "If success comes so late, is it worth it?" I'll leave it to you to find out as you have to see this film!

I had to give it an 9 out of a possible 10 for it's genre.
