Plot picks up Timothy Bottoms en route home from a prison stretch to reunite with girl friend Susan George and their out of wedlock son, also to contemplate revenge on Bo Hopkins, who busted him on a pot charge and is now involved with George.

The film jettisons believability to concentrate on stunt crashes and explosions. Bottoms’ character is overly obtuse even for an embittered ex-con and pointlessly risks the lives of George and their son.

Bo Hopkins acts rings around Bottoms. He does an excellent job of conveying the sheriff’s unsettling mixture of boyish charm and viciousness. George is okay in another over-wrought part. Buck Fowler is a standout in the supporting cast as a grizzled old moonshiner who gleefully joins the chase.
