PG Certificate


Our Score
Poor old Timothy Bottoms. After winning rave reviews for his role as the teenager coming of age in The Last Picture Show, he was reduced to making tedious, unoriginal dramas like this. He plays an escaped prisoner dragging Linda Purl through the mountains, on the run from the law, in what is essentially an excuse for director Harvey Hart to film lots of impressive Canadian scenery in between the mediocre chase sequences.


An escaped convict eludes his pursuers by fleeing to the wilderness of Canada's Rocky Mountains along with a handicapped girlfriend. Adventure, starring Timothy Bottoms, Linda Purl, George Sims and Jim Lawrence.
