The two talents of Clint Eastwood and Kevin Costner combined to make what they hoped to be a major success. Instead, it ended up clearing out theaters, which is a shame since the film isn't half bad. Costner stars as an escaped con, who takes a little kid hostage and travels cross country, with Texas Ranger Eastwood hot on his trail. In the meantime, the boy and the con become friends and begin to form a special bond.

The movie is well-filmed by director-co-star Eastwood and cinematographer Jack Green, and it features some impressive performances, especially by Costner in an unusual role for him. The flaws are the overlong of the story, the lack of suspense for a film about a manhunt and the fact that, no matter how hard you try, you just can't see the charming Costner as a vicious killer. Better luck for Clint has unfolded in more recent dictatorial efforts, but this isn't the godawful bomb that it's made out to be.
