Movie Reviews

"Citizen Kane" of Moonshine/Car Chase Movies
David Baldwin | Philadelphia,PA USA | 12/19/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This film had the misfortune of coming out in the summer of '77 on the heels of "Smokey and the Bandit". Guess which film has more posterity? I remember seeing this as a kid on a double feature with "The World's Greatest Lover" starring Gene Wilder and liked it immensely. The film's selling point is the car chases but they are secondary to the witty script which was written by William Hjortsberg, author of "Angel Heart". The Florida Everglades are utilized to great effect which adds to film's fantastic ambience. David Carradine and Kate Jackson have great chemistry and an easy charm that goes down as smoothly as honeydew. Enjoyable performance by Roger C. Carmel(Mudd from "Star Trek") as Ralph Jr., soft drink purveyor who dabbles in toxic moonshine distribution. Also of note is the presence of Charles Napier, veteran of Jonathan Demme films, as one of Ralph Jr.'s thugs. Bottom line this movie is Fun! Fun! Fun!"
Fast Paced Fun with Young Kate Jackson
William Andrews | Aurora, Colorado | 10/18/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I loved this movie, I saw it first back in the theaters in 1977 when it first came out. I feel it's one of the best action movies around. It has action, comedy, great performaces. I've always liked Kate Jackson and David Carradine and they work great together. It's escapism and fun viewing on a Saturday afternoon. Buy you won't be disappointed."
Smokey and the Bandit came out right after this and is a lit
Ricahrd A. Salzer | Chesapeake, Virginia, USA | 08/08/2006
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Jackson. Hawai'i Five-0 vet Roger C.
Carmel is outstanding in here as Jackson's
dad. Longtime Carradine movie partner, C.
Napier is good in here as well as other
Hawai'i Five-0 vet, Ron Feinberg. Direc-
tion is only average and too much profa-
nity may turn some off. TV prints aleivate
that, but still this movie is underrated
and hard to find! I first saw it on video
rental in Roanoke, VA back in early '90's.
Like many I missed it in Theatre back in
'77 because of Smokey and the (overrated)
Bandit I. But this film is better than S.
A.t.B. II or III!"

"Awesome film, sorry to see the 57 Chevy get all beat up though. Great mid-70s movie, and Kate Jackson is pretty hot, a true angel. Ranks up there with all the boot-leggin' movies. Carridine was awesome, better than Kung Fu."
