I'l keep this review short and sweet. This movie involves a fugitive and a boy. Its one of those movies that would have really appealed to the young audience of the 1980's. And it would also have had an appeal to adults too. David Jackson plays the larger than life part of an on the run criminal called Donny The Bull. I saw this film years ago and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I know that if you like a bit of action and something that appeals to a younger side in yourself then this is the film for you. I'm only going on memory here , but this film is something that has stuck with me for a very long time. I hope one day that I can track it down. It will be worth the effort.
The film involves two boys, Nash and Haslar, who unwittingly witness
two prison escapees while bird watching in the woods. They are caught
and forced to aid the convicts escape and find Donny's hidden loot.
It's a nicely paced kids adventure film, one of the many fondly remembered Children's Film Foundation productions and the parts are well acted by both the child and adult actors, though on occasion David Jackson's tough 'hulk' like portrayal is a little grinding for adult viewing.
It was perhaps traditional adventure fair of its time, but there is no reason, if you can find a copy, that children today shouldn't enjoy this film either.
