Terrible movie I've ever seen George Kennedy in.
I got to watch this home brew type movie for the first time today. It didn't crank my engine at all. Canadians just don't act the way this movie portrays. First off, no-one in Canada is allowed to own an auto-matic weapon, let alone have one handy in a trailer. A person running down the main street of Niagra Falls would begin immediate pannic of those walking down the main crowded strip. People would scatter, and head for shelter as quickly as they could, not standby and watch someone have a shoot out, with bullets flying here there and everywhere. Has this director lost his mind, thinking Canadian people would simply stand still and watch an on-going shoot out, while not ducking and seeking cover of some sorts, as well as quickly clearing the street, to allow the police to do their jobs when they arrive at a crime scene? Sloppy job I must say. The way the director portrayed how our Niagra Falls Police dept. would respond or act in this movie,is totally wrong, big, BIG!!!!! time. Even back in 1979, when this low bugget, stupid movie was made, our Niagra police swat teams would have been called, and responded to the scene quickly,taking down and arresting both of the leading actors shooting in this movie, for having and using, illegal weaponery not allowed in Canada. Both the leading actors in this lousy movie(if this scene had been in real life) would have been facing at least 10 yrs. prison time or more for just having the weapons in their possessions, not to mention, looking at alot of extra jail time for using them. The Canaian law system is not tolerant, when it comes to guns or gun play on our streets.This movie doesn't depict the true Canadian way of life at all, in fact, I found the movie to be an insult to our Canadian police deptments across Canada and how they work hard every day, protecting the citizens of our country. Don't ever try having a gun of anysorts in Canada and walk down our fair city streets with it in your hand, because you won't get far before your caught and looking at big jail time, that's for sure. No Doubt about it.
I found this movie to be nothing but a pile of garbage, and doesn't become George Kennedy's acting career at all. It's too bad he took part in this movie, as I expected higher of him. Mr. Kennedy is a good actor, and doesn't need to be brought down by this low bugget, useless movie.
My grade on this movie, from 1 to 10, is a 2, and no higher. The only reason it got that high a rating was because George Kennedy was in it, and no more. I must say, it's the poorest movie I've ever seen Mr. Kennedy in. It's a totall insult to his acting career, in my opinion. It's a pure shame.
