"Usually I wouldn't waste my time to write something on here that I don't think anyone will ever read, but in case you decided to here is what I think of this movie...Oh My God! I woke up at 2:00a.m. on Feb. 04, and I could not go back to sleep I was so into this movie, it kept me on the edge of my seat all night! I finally got to sleep at 4:00a.m. and I had a dream about it...LOL. Then the next day I was so upset because I was telling my friend about it at work and she asked me what the name of it was and I said "Trapper County...(someting) aaahhh! I couldn't remember the name! So I went home and I treid to look it up on the TV listings but it was the next day and I couldn't find it anywhere I was ready to give up...then 2 days later I found it..."Trapper County War"! I was so happy...that's how good this movie is! BUY IT NOW...don't waste anytime:o)"
Some Swayze, some explosions, but not quite enough.

"Trapper County War was viewed with high expectaions. We considered the idea of Don Swayze being a renagade Confederate trying to pull off a Southern accent and making his world-renowned facial ticks absolutely appealing. Who wouldn't? However, the filmakers seemed to try to make a sentimental love story out of this movie rather than making it good old fashioned B!
80's heartthrob, Rob Estes plays a Jersey stud driving to an undoubtedly sexy location for vacation. Unfortunately, he takes a wrong turn and ends up in the backwoods of North Carolina. Naturally, he can't go 5 minutes without some chick falling for him or his skin-tight acid washed levis. So the chick happens to be the sister/girlfriend of non other than screen legend Don Swayze. Obviously, in real life Swayze would go John Blackwell, his famous character from Death Ring, on him and rip him up. But this was an 80's movie, so Estes wins the girl and gets to leave Trapper County with the help of a crazy Vietnam vet.
Trapper County War was good times, bad times, and the Swayze times. We would still recommend popping it in, but maybe not first in your summer B line up.
Two Lovers. One chance. No Mercy

"The hills echo with explosive action when a city boy gets caught in the deadly crossfire of Trapped Country War. Driving cross-country, Ryan (Robert Estes, The Uninvited) makes a wrong turn and winds up in a backwoods hell ruled by the savage Luddiggers. Sparks fly when Ryan tries to rescue the clan's sexy ward, Lacey (Besty Russell, Avengine Angel), only to find himself a victim of their sadistic brand of justice. Aided by an embittered Vietnam Vet (Ernie Hudson, Gostbusters), Ryan must fight back with every lethal weapon in his arsenal - if he is to survive."
