I didn't realize that film was made in '86, a year for film that Iloved. The cover makes the film looks more than it is, which it isn't.This is a 90+ minute film that doesn't use too many scenes (for somejust drag) or story structure that basically goes out the window forthe stretch, and we wonder what the hell. And we kind of wonder whatBurt is doing in this too. I mean if you're interested in watching Burt(a private eye here) win, and blow ten grand, go ahead. It's kind ofinteresting, especially Burt losing so bad, it causes the dealer andgood friend (Scarwid) to draw tears. The paper thin revenge tale (oh,yes this from a book) of course is set in Vegas, where a close ladyfriend of Burt's (Young) has been up pretty bad by these three guys,two real beefy, and we know how dangerous Burt can get when provoked,causing him to do some really serious damage, the other guy, a thinsissy, faggoty type with ties to the mafia. Him and Burt meet latetogether in the Mafia chambers, you could say, but prefore to this, andafter he does some irreparable damage, he takes some nice bundles ofcash, which he gives to his avenged lady friend, who watches the showBurt gives, then skips town, where a new client, (Ally McBeal's PeterMaCnichol) befriends Burt, looking to him as his teacher, trying tomake him stronger, than the whining loser he is. I really did like thescenes between these two. Yes, this is a film that will disappoint alot of viewers, with high expectations, where they brought down, bad,but give it some more views. Very well shot, some moments near the endare shot very dark, bringing to mind the shot torture scene in Sharky'sMachine.

One of Burt Reynold's best performances. Having said that, the movie hassome definite shortcomings. Mex's dreams of Venice seem awfully thin. Thepart where he interacts with MacNichols is much better than the Mafiastuffthat the film degenerates into. All in all, however, a much better filmthanyou'd think. (for all its obscurity)
Burt Reynolds had made bad films before this one, but he was always able to bounce back with films like Sharkey's Machine (1981) or City Heat (1984), but there was no recovering from this turkey. It took Burt all the way to 1997's Boogie Nights to make a decent film. This film has all of the usual elements, but just not put together correctly. Wayne had Ford and De Niro had Scorsese I guess Burt couldn't make a decent film without Hal Needham. If Hal would have done this he could have at least made the action scenes exciting and Burt could concentrate on being Burt. So if Burt makes a good movie every ten years we should see one pretty soon. Not a Dukes of Hazzard or The Longest Yard, but a real Burt Reynolds movie. One bad thing is the Burt I know would wear a toupee, but would never have undergone that wretched plastic surgery(Clint didn't need one). Come on Hal,if you're still kicking get together and bring back the good ol' Burt Reynolds.
