Eddie Macon (John Schneider) escapes from prison and is desperate to rejoin his family. His wife Chris (Leah Ayres) helps him escape. In flashbacks, he suffers various setbacks and injustices leading to a twenty year sentence. He is pursued by Texas department of corrections officer Carl 'Buster' Marzack (Kirk Douglas) who caught him in a previous attempt.
There is a lot of selling in this movie. It's selling Schneider as a good guy. The blonde hair blue eyed couple is perfect. At the end of the day, he was drinking while driving and he did hit a guy. It's a corrupt world and he expects that his perfection shouldn't be touched by it. I would root for him more if the movie isn't trying so hard to sell his innocence. There is a good performance from Douglas and there is also a young John Goodman. One thing is for sure. Texas folks aren't coming off looking good in this one. Finally, it's unreasonable for him to be running except that it's in the title. His wife should have rented a car and left it at a designated location. At the very least, he should have stolen a car after the shooting. All in all, it's fine if not anything special.
