Bland nature film. Boothe is a fine actor and Pleasance has a nice supporting role, but the build-up is long-winded and misses the mark.

Not really a high-quality drama, but one that still looked away quite nicely. The latter was mainly due to the cast in the form of a young Rutger Hauer and Kathleen Turner, who was still beautiful at the time. However, the one who plays the best is Powers Boothe. The story isn't that great (in the 80s there were many films about former Vietnam veterans who are more or less isolated in America) but the execution was quite reasonable.

After principal filming was completed in North Carolina, the reels of film were shipped back to Los Angeles, California by plane. However, one of the four reels never arrived, causing some problems during editing. This explains why some subplots are incomplete, and the character of Jim Malden is not fully fleshed out. Personally, I expected a lot more tension, but this weakens considerably halfway through the film.
