This was a great movie with lots of action!
4 January 2007 | by segebarttdSee all my reviews

I only had the pleasure of seeing this movie once. But have been trying to find a copy or another playing of it... The script was very good and it kept me waiting for what was going to happen next. I saw this movie 12 years ago and still have not found another listing for it sense. I would like to view it with my family, As it was late when I viewed it last time and every else had retired for the night. but after all these years I am loosing hope of getting to view this movie again. All of the actors in this movie performed with great realism that really had me hooked on this movie. I would recommend it to all age groups as it has a great story line, Just like the book it was created from written by John Macdonald.
