02.12.08Internet This is a movie that should be better than it is I guess. Lee Marvin and Richard Burton with a supporting cast from people like Cameron Mitchell, Lola Falana, and O.J. Simpson as a murderer on the run with a script co-written by Sam Fuller. About the Klan. You'd think you wouldn't even have to watch it; you just know it's good. Unfortunately, it's pretty watered down and preachy in a very studio way although Burton's clearly drunk through the whole thing and it's pretty funny to see Mitchell throw himself through walls when fighting the supposed army-trained martial arts expert that is Richard Burton, Marvin doesn't get to chew scenery nearly at all. OJ's one scene where he hijacks Burton for a minute is pretty awesome just because it's so serious and life-or-death revolutionary but for the most part... blah.
