When the police pick up Gator McKlusky (Burt Reynolds) for running moonshine, they agree to let him out of jail if he will help them capture the key figures in his moonshine operation. Since the suspected ring leader is the man who killed Gator's little brother, he agrees to help out the cops to get himself out of prison and get his revenge. ~ Iotis Erlewine, Rovi

The film has plenty of rip-roaring car chases (Hal Needham was the stunt coordinator), but it also has genuine emotion, in the pain and anger the hero feels over the loss of his brother and in the incidental reactions and attitudes of almost every support
Burt, moonshine, car chases. What's not to like?
