What other readers are saying about this title:
This movie has a very seventies feel to it and it isn’t just the hairstyles. Basically about a Vietnam vet who is on the run from the police and is adopted/coerced by a movie director as a stuntman. The whole thing has a bit of a surrealistic feel to it. The scenes of the movie being shot sometimes go beyond the script and the director seems to be directing not only the movie but the lives of the main actors. They could do a lot more drawing parallels between what the vet’s experience in Vietnam days and the war movie in which he is starring, or maybe they are just leaving this up to you. Peter O’Toole definitely is the memorable actor from this one. The protagonist is, unfortunately, a bit bland. If you’re willing to accept this as a slightly older movie with a faintly psychedelic flavor to it then it might be worth watching. Not a kid’s movie. There’s interesting stunt work but nothing special by today’s standards, the plot has that, "Huh? What?" component, and there’s nudity (rated R).
