Storyline

In 1989, clean-cut FBI man John Buckner is detailed to escort heavily-bearded Huey Walker back to jail for offenses dating back to his days as a celebrated hippie radical. After Walker dupes Buckner on the train he falls into the hands of a couple of well-meaning refugees from the 60's, the two men with apparently nothing in common find themselves on the run together. But appearances can be deceptive. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Trivia

The motorcycle which Sutherland rides off on at the end of the film is a Honda VF1000R. It was a homologation race bike with only approximately 15,000 made from 1984-1986. See more »

Goofs

When Buckner and Walker board the train (in Oregon), Stark asks Sheriff Hightower where the next stop is. Hightower replies, "It's across the border into Canada." Washington State lies between Oregon and Canada; it's very unlikely that the train would bypass Washington state. See more »

Quotes

Huey Walker: You know what your problem is?
John Buckner: What?
Huey Walker: You like me. You just won't admit it.
John Buckner: Let me tell you something, Mr. Walker...
Huey Walker: What happened to "Huey?"
John Buckner: When you were riding around on your Indian and wiping your ass with the American flag, my father was in Vietnam. He fought there, and he died there too. So don't tell me I like you, because I hate your fucking guts, okay?
Huey Walker: I'm sorry about your dad. (Buckner shrugs) Yeah, I wiped my ass with the flag, I did. Gave me a rash.

Refreshing
12 September 2000 | by Rick-51See all my reviews

After a month of monotonous plots, this movie is refreshingly different. The characters are not predictable, the plot takes some interesting twists, you know the characters are going to survive until one of them dies. The dialog is thought-provoking, especially for this old hawk who has had time to think about the 60's and the issues that were involved.
