Burt Reynolds Performance Only Reason To Watch This
23 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Continuing my plan to watch every Burt Reynolds movie in his filmography in order, I come to "Run Simon Run"

Playing an Indian (Again) Burt Reynolds (Without a hair on his chest) plays the lead character, and is the only reason to watch this.

Plot In A Paragraph: Simon Zuniga (Burt Reynolds) returns home from a sentence in prison (for a crime he didn't commit) to find his brothers killer.

I think the quality of the DVD I was watching this on seriously hampered my enjoyment of it, as I never really got on to it, despite a good performance from Reynolds, Inger Stevens final performance and Solid support from James Best.
