Storyline

In the tradition of such films as "Billy Jack", "The Seven Samurai", and "Electra Glide in Blue", "The Rain Makers" is the story about a rag tag group of unique individuals who reluctantly come together to protect the weak from the unscrupulous criminals trying to oppress them. Set in and around a small Arizona town in the year 1973, this tale revolves around a commune called the Freedom Preserve. It's occupants, mostly hippies, peaceniks, and artists, have all turned their back on a society and government in turmoil over the war in Vietnam. They have created their own Utopia and try to maintain a peaceful existence with the local residents. Their efforts, however, are unsuccessful. The townspeople despise them and the local law harasses them every chance they get. When a real estate developer attempts to steal their land from them, they find themselves without allies. The members of the Freedom Preserve refuse to give up their commune and property, and suddenly find themselves being ... Written by Ellingsen, Ray

Walking Backwards - I hope you do not think this is a spoiler but it stunk!
11 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A typical camera to video piece of hack work. I like Jake Busey, and thought he did a wonderful job with what he had to work with. The directing was amateurish at best, and the writing was terrible. David Andrews and Ray Wise had their hands full trying to drag out some form of realism with this film. I salute them for their courage, and that of most of the other actors who precipitated in this, I do use the word "film." How this got filmed is beyond my wildest dreams. Another case of using someone else money and leaving them to hold the bag and wait on the snipes. I do not mean this a a spoiler, but someone has to stand up for these bombs.
