I actually own a DVD copy of this film. First released in 1986 on US TV its simply criminal that this film is not out on mainstream DVD.
Any fan of Tommy Lee Jones will really apprecaite his acting, which is top drawer. Jones plays an ex vet who on his return to his beloved New York City is confused and shocked to see that ex army guys are being treated like crap.
I personally have seen this for real in New York City.
So Jones takes a stand and takes over Central Park for 3 days as a protest, and well thats it.
The difference between this film and a standard run of the mill is the sharp script and brilliant acting. Not only do we have Jones, but we have the versatile Helen Shavers and the wonderfully gifted Yaphet Kotto.
Look around this film is worth getting.
