Kyle Hanson is a Vietnam veteran whose traumatic war-time experiences have left him unable to rejoin mainstream society. When Kyle, unkempt and in dirty fatigues, stops in a small town for some food, the local bullies can't wait for an opportunity to harass him. After Kyle uses his Special Forces training to escape the bullies, he becomes the subject of a community-wide manhunt. Only Jenny Bellows, a local girl whose husband was declared missing in action in Vietnam, is willing to give Kyle a chance.Written by

Shots of Kyle driving red pick-up that he escapes in are shown mirrored back-to-front in several shots - the steering wheel is clearly on the wrong side. See more »
Mr. Bellows, the only safe way we can get him off of that island is - go down and get us a pack of bloodhounds.
Nah, Bubba. Jenny here tells me he likes that old worthless piece of ground. As far as I'm concerned, he can have this island, for as long as he wants to stay. If I ever saw one man win a war by himself, he sure did.

Really overrated ...... really overpriced ...... really not very good ......
"Ruckus" is not "Rambo". Ruckus is a trivial Southern nonsense cartoon. The car chases are all there. The boat chases are all there. The explosions are all there. What's missing is a believable script. The lack of substance in this film is appalling. Well liked actors Richard Farnsworth and Ben Johnson are totally wasted in meaningless roles. Linda Blair is just sort of there, with no effect on the outcome. As the VHS box states "Thanks to the U.S. Army, he can kill a man in 6 seconds with his bare hands". However, in this Southern fried drivel, no "Rednecks" were harmed by bullets, arrows, or dynamite. The only thing missing is Wylie Coyote. - MERK
