Rooney and Caan Play the Most Dangerous Game
24 April 2010 | by (Orlando, United States) – See all my reviews

Laid back surfer, James Caan has his car break down in a Southern town from Hell. Mickey Rooney is a rather nasty Sheriff who likes to let prisoners escape so he can watch his dogs tear them to pieces.

Robert Altman may have had a hand in the directing and writing.

This works better than one might expect due to some great acting on Caan and Rooney's part. Rooney offers the excuse that he keeps the town safe and the townspeople keep reelecting him. Caan shows that he has a lot of guts for a surfer dude.

Bruce Dern has a small role playing his usual nasty good old boy. It is nice to see him so young. Actually, it is nice to see Caan so young too. He looks a little like Paul Newman here.
