At one point, near the beginning of the movie, there is a very short outside view of a building. The movie labels it as the "Texas Police Department", but pausing the movie or looking closely you can see that above the the door, to the right of the garage exit, it says "L A P D" in big, white lettering. It looks like the scene was taken from another movie, "Blue Streak", with Martin Lawrence. See more »
Awesome, wonderful movie, finally showing that yes, the US film industry still knows how to make them. And demonstrating clearly that good movies are not made with big budgets, big names or big egos - they're made with good actors and brains.
The movie picks up all you expect from the genre, while sidestepping just about every cliché-trap by turning almost all scenes into surprising, amazingly well-written, well-played and well-shot little jewels that somehow still go well together to form a perfect necklace. It allows itself to start at a slow pace, taking its time to develop the setting, plot and characters, picking up speed as it moves along into a quite furious show-down.
If you're into country-music - the soundtrack is also quite worth while.
And the actors: from Sorbo's compellingly commanding performance, proving that he can carry just about every part he accepts with amazing ease - making it his own in the very first minute he appears on screen, AJ Buckley's scary and realistic portray of the villain, Yvette Nipar's reserved charm and down to Mitchum's weak run-along and David Frey's annoying and really bad 'bad boy', they all deliver a superb job indeed.
If you like the old 'High Noon'-like western style, if you're missing Eastwood's spaghetti-heroes, if you enjoy a classical, well-told tale, if you have lately experienced nostalgia for Steven Spielberg's 'Duell'... this is the movie to see.
