Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.

Movie Info

Martin Sheen is at his most "James Dean-ish" and Vic Morrow at his most sadistic in the made-for-TV The California Kid. Sheen plays a hot rodder whose brother dies at the hands of sheriff Morrow. It is Morrow's habit to punish speeders by deliberately running them off precipitous mountain curves. Sheen goads Morrow into a no-survivors chase up a steep mountain road--where more than a few surprises await the homicidal lawkeeper. Martin Sheen's souped-up, garishly decorated jalopy gives the best and most consistent "performance" in The California Kid.

Audience Reviews for The California Kid

It's there now, but I remember a few years ago when this movie was being shown on TV and I was watching it every chance I got, IMDB didn't even have it listed, so that tells you how rare/overlooked it is. moreDoesn't matter how underrated or forgotten it is, this is a great movie! The car's awesome, and so is the movie overall. I love the plot of a cop in a speedtrap small town who literally kills speeders but kills the brother of Martin Sheen and now he's out for revenge. I wouldn't mind owning this movie at all one day. If you get the chance, watch it!!
