    I just couldn't identify with the main characters, I wanted the bandit guys to get the money in the end instead somehow. This just goes to show how greedy Americans are, I guess? Overall I didn't really enjoy this movie.

    The number of big name stars in this movie are amazing. James Brolin, Anthony Quinn, Lindsay Wagner, James Coburn, and Ernest Borgnine. After doing some research I found out this movie ran up against Indiana Jones both opening at the same time. No wonder it was never heard of. I found it in a 10 Movie Crime Wave Collection by BCI. It was a good movie in 1981 but in 2011 its something you expect to see at 3am in the morning. About 4 guys who plan on going into Mexico to steal 1 million dollars from James Coburn, without hurting anyone, figure those odds even in 1981. After their little robbery the are chased and hiding out when the run into Anthony Quinn who plays the leader of a bunch of rebels who also want the money. Kind of a crime drama with some comedy, not a good mixture in this film. 3 stars.

    This is a little gem of a modestly budgeted film that establishes one of the main premises of Deliverance. When everyone in some hell hole would give anything to trade places with a man of privilege from a comparative paradise, what the hell is the man of privilege doing fucking around in the hell-hole where he has no business? With some familiar faces such as James Brolin and Bruce Davison who portrayed George Orr in the original PBS production of The Lathe Of Heaven.

    It had the components there to be a cheese classic, but it kind of got old along the way. Still, you have to appreciate how it so gleefully avoids things like logic or realism for the sake of its "story". Whatever happened to Cleavon Little, anyway?
