Stunts

Robert Forster is excellent as an ace stuntman who thwarts a maniac stalking a film crew making a police actioner on an ocean-side location in San Luis Obispo, Calif.

Robert Forster is excellent as an ace stuntman who thwarts a maniac stalking a film crew making a police actioner on an ocean-side location in San Luis Obispo, Calif.

This is a tight-lipped actioner about a male group involved in a dangerous trade, with sexy female camp followers admitted to the group once they accept the code of grace under pressure.

There is much emphasis on expertise, emotional control, and the details of the craft, which are shown in docu-like style. The action scenes alternate with more relaxed character interplay in a motel and a bar, where the concept of expertise is translated into personal relationships.

Fiona Lewis is the prime romantic interest, a groupie journalist who initially causes friction in the group.
