Wonderful film and great role for Costner. Really enjoyed this one. I don't think there was one bad scene in the whole movie.
It was poor - can't remember anything about it.
Another good movie directed by Clint Eastwood. I think it might be Costner's best work to date. I haven't liked all of Costner's movies but this one was good. The acting of the smaller role players was excellent. Terrific acting by the child actor.
After seing Clint Eastwoods films you see the world with different eyes. There is always a moral to his stories and actors are well cast.
Acting was excellent, the boy was outstanding, so was Kevin.
The movie explores the problemsof law enforcement in Texas a generation back. Clint Eastwood as the Sherrif shows the struggle law enforcement officers have in bringing justice to the battlers of the state. His interaction with Laura Deen brings out this point to perfection, with the final scene where Butch Haynes is shot drives home the point. :when the poor and the powerless meet the prejudices and attitudes of law enforcement officers, the poor always come off badly.
Much of the film is taken up by the interaction between Butch haynes as the baddie and his hostage, played by the young TL Lowther. The scene on "pecker" size is hilarious. The background fo the hunt for the escapee is the background for this interaction and the tragic conclusion gradually become the only poossible ending. Eastwood plays his tough guy role to perfection. Probaly not in the same class as Dirty Harry, but not far behind in displaying human beings in difficult situations at their best and worst.
Very good story. My husband and myself enjoyed this movie very much. Would recommend this movie to watch.
Costner was excellent in his portrayal of a good crook . The ending was corny unrealistic & predictable. A reasonable movie but could have been much better. Eastwood had a ???nothing??? role and the storyline and direction were a bit disjointed
a good movie, with Kevin Costner mainley carring the movie through, portraying a escapee from prisen befriends a young boy after breaking in to his mothers house, using him as a hostage, then becaming attached to him as a father figure, going on a big adventure to escape from the police, Clint Eastward bieng the sherrif who is after him felt he wasn,t really out to harm the boy
This was very watchable, with a very sad ending
Not a happy movie which ever way you look at this movie but very good. Excellent cast with Eastwood and Costner. A must see for all movie fans. Great.
A good movie well worth having a look at. Fun to sad.
