The performances are all good, particularly the central pairing of David Carradine (who's never been better) and Ronny Cox. But there are problems with the edit here, information is given and then repeated numerous times and brings the needlessly long running time into question. To say this was Ashby's worst film of the seventies it truly goes to show how good the man was.

It's weird but somehow it's entertaining, some jokes are good but Affleck is as wooden as ever...too bad it could have been a better film.
