Low-budget drama with curious, unsuccessful comedic asides
Dirk Benedict is fairly colorless playing a disturbed Vietnam vet who causes chaos in a backwater town. Odd but not especially interesting B-movie does features fetching Linda Blair as a single mother and love-interest--and a hilariously sincere romantic montage wherein Benedict and Blair bond over some off-roading. Casual comparisons to Sylvester Stallone's "First Blood" are inevitable, however this one surely could've used more of John Rambo's inner-torment; Benedict is such a sad sack, he acts like a homeless puppy in an Army jacket. Forgettable trifle has a good supporting cast but needed a bigger budget and more action to enliven this scenario. *1/2 from ****
