Quotes

J. Marcone: Once upon a time there was a little boy, his father, made him some wings outta feathers and wax. He told the young man not ta, fly to close to the sun, or else the wax would melt, but, the young man in his arrogance, ignored the warnings of his father, and he flew too close to the sun. The wax melted and he fell to his death.
Foreigner: So, you are the father? And we are the son?
J. Marcone: Yes but, I am also the sun.

Starts off okay, then goes slowly downhill
18 February 2010 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

"Road Of No Return" was one of the last movies David Carradine made before his death. Curious about if he was still able to give an entertaining performance at this time like his past performances was one reason why I rented it. Another reason was that Michael Madsen was also in the movie. The front of the DVD box seems to suggest that they are the two lead actors in the movie, but that isn't so - they are given supporting roles. Not only that, I noticed that though they share several scenes together, not once do you see both actors at the same time. (Obviously, they were each filmed at separate times and edited together later.) And Carradine looks very old and tired in all of his scenes.

I probably could have lived with those facts had the rest of the movie been entertaining, but in actual fact there's not much entertaining here. The movie has a sense of humor that is occasionally amusing, but is mostly loud and tiresome. While the movie is decently shot on a poverty row budget, the other production values are often flawed, with stuff like one shot being repeated, stock footage, and obvious post-dubbed dialogue. But the biggest problem is that the movie eventually comes to a slow crawl, and it's tiresome making the slow slog to the end. Some more gratuitous action and pruning down of scenes would have helped considerably.
