First feature & reasonably good action movie - in the seventies style - from Dante's Peak director. Tribute to Sam NEIL too soon dissapeared. === Premier long métrage et film d'action moyen dans le style des années soixante-dix du directeur du Pic de Dante. Hommage à Sam NEIL trop tôt disparu.
Film that put New Zealand on the cinematic map is a muddled political thriller sunk by poor plot development, illogical characters and a terrible sudden character changing ending. However, Sam Neill (final scenes aside) is quite dynamic here as is the fairly lush cinematography by Seresin. File Warren Oates under the illogical characters. Donaldson would go on to 'Smash Palace' and a long Hollywood career.
