Swayze does well!
20 February 2005 | by rod-99See all my reviews

The interesting thing about Swayze is that he "did" this movie... more or less after Dirty Dancing. After the success of Dirty Dancing Swayze could've done anything - instead he decides to tell the simple and sad tale of one families personal tragic past.

A big career mistake? I don't think so, this is a fine movie and a fine vehicle for Swayze to explore his talent. In all fields this film has strength... the acting and cast are rock solid... the location work is fabulous and the story, although tame compared to todays standards still hits the target solidly. The only thing that shows through in parts is the budget is lacking. Swayze does well as the out casted son weaving his sentimental spell as the movie unfolds its mystery. The simple sense of futility and overwhelming sadness in this film is all due to Swayze acting his part so well.

Sure this is not a blockbuster - and on it's budget it wasn't supposed to be, but as entertainment value (which is what movies are all about) this is a fine piece of work. Watch it!
