Kelly Reno was quite a good kid actor. "The Black Stallion" is a very nice movie. This, however, pulls out one of the most hackneyed of plots. The Twilight Zone did it about six times. Take a character from an historical setting and thrust him into modern times. Jobe is fighting at the Alamo and is sent on a mission (no pun intended). As he leaves his time he emerges in contemporary San Antonio. What would be expect from some poor kid thrown into this neo-cultural zoo. He only know what he knows. He has a weapon and he has used it before to help survive. And, of course, the police have probably seen enough nut cases in their daily patrols, to expect some Texan has gone bananas and is shooting up the place. There is nothing about this offering that gives us anything new or creative. We can only feel sad about his circumstances, look at the insensitivity of the contemporary milieu, and know that he is returning to a sure death at the Alamo. Pretty contrived and not very interesting.
