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

An updated version of the original, great, Billy Jack
10 August 2005 | by (Egypt) – See all my reviews

Although this movie was not nearly so well done as Billy Jack or Rambo, and even as clumsy and awkward as it was, this movie captivated me enough to get me away from the internet for 90 minutes.

Just as did Billy Jack, this movie has as a hero a Vietnam Special Forces veteran coming to the rescue of pacifists.

What this flick does differently though, is to include another Vietnam vet who is on the sheriff's department who is not crooked and who has been maligned because he was stereotyped by the peace freaks as a baby killer because he fought in 'Nam.

There are other differences, mostly not positive though. I would watch this movie again, so have to rate it a six or higher. Jake Busey is going to be a star one day soon.
