The Vin Diesels of this world could learn a great deal from this true action hero
2 April 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

"Reynolds should have hung up his boots after Smokey and the Bandit II"

  • Fiction

"Reynolds has still got what it takes as an action hero" - Fact

What a movie! Mindblowing! To see an actor of Burts calibre still diving about (performing his own Slow-mo stunts, no less) really brings a tear to my eye.

Keith Carradine is the perfect foil to our hero as Reynolds' toughest movie opponent since Jackie Gleason (may god rest his soul) last chased him 'eastbound and down' Charles Durning puts in a wonderful turn as burts seemingly inept former partner but looks can be deceiving there's life in the old boy yet! All in all a wonderful film that i can highly recommend to anyone Go Burt!
