Overview

Malone Burt Reynolds has been a "wet" operative for the CIA for many years, serving his country by performing assassinations. He is tired of his job and wants to get out of "the company" as it is called and live a normal life. He is looking along the Pacific Northwest for a place to settle down when his much-cherished classic Mustang breaks down outside the town of Comstock. He manages to get to a small gas station and is treated like family by a Vietnam veteran, who is the station's owner, and his daughter. They are suffering from the nefarious activities of a local bigwig Cliff Robertson to take over all the land in the city in a hare-brained development scheme. He soon runs afoul of the town sheriff, who is basically an employee of the developer, but eventually wins his respect. Meanwhile, the CIA is none too pleased to hear of Malone's intended retirement and send a succession of hit-men after him to ensure that he divulges none of their dirty secrets. Malone destroys the first two killers at some cost to his own well-being. The next assassin turns out to be a woman who is susceptible to his charms. Meanwhile, he has a thorough-going local scoundrel to put out of business.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
This oft-eccentric action potboiler is one of the more diverting Burt Reynolds vehicles from his late 1980's era. The script has a clever paranoid-political thriller plot hook at its heart but basically plays like an updated western, with Reynolds filling the role of a reluctant hero who straps on his gun to save a small town from the forces of corruption. It's over-the-top to the point of campiness, particularly during the overblown action sequences, and has some questionable story elements (like the Cynthia Gibb character flirting heavily with the a-few-decades-her-senior Reynolds). However, the cast of familiar faces and surefooted direction from Harley Cokliss keep it from going off the rails. Reynolds plays his moody role well, allowing his natural star quality to do the heavy lifting, and he receives nice support from Scott Wilson as the small town's last honest man. There's also a memorably intense performance from Cliff Robertson as the obsessed mogul bedeviling the film's small town setting. Cokliss gives the film a sleek, kinetic style and gets lots of mileage from atmospheric lensing by Gerald Hirschfeld and a rousing musical score by David Newman. The end result is essentially a big-budget version a b-movie programmer - but it delivers the goods and has enough distinctive touches to make it worthwhile for b-movie fans with a yen for old-fashioned action flicks.
