This is simply a beautiful film to watch. The characters are all believable and the story is true love equates redemption. David Carradine is spectacular and I left the film wanting more of him. The 2 leads, unknowns, will not remain unknown for long. The chemistry between the two was palpable. Caroyn Neff,lovely and petulant at times works her favor upon Rusty Joiner and I actually wondered if these two were an item. There is a "montgomery Cliff" type of sadness that Joiner brings to the genre and I actually felt as though I needed to embrace him...He is easy on the eyes in a Brad Pitt way, as well. Ulli Lommel's cameo sets the record straight that the man still has it. I'd love to see him star in a film. There is a screen presence that is stellar. He plays an aging hit-man with conviction and just a hint of tongue in cheek attitude. I will certainly buy this film when released, but I am hoping to see it again on the big screen here in the U.S. Anyone who his loved and lost cannot help but identify with this film.
