5.0 out of 5 stars The Groundbreaker of the 1970s, 1 Feb 2006
This review is from: Deliverance [1972] [DVD] (DVD)
Deliverance was one of the first groundbreaking movies of the 1970s, pushing the boundaries further than any other movie had dared to and, 24 years later it still has as much impact as it originally did. That tells you something about a movie.
The Cahulawassa River is being expanded into a lake, prompting four very different business men into taking a canoe trip as a final adventure. However the trip turns sour when Ed, a bit of a whimp, and 'Chubby' Bobby, someone who is 'respected in the field of insurance' are captured by two hillbillies throwing all four men into a moral and physically painful battle for survival. Interestingly as the film progresses, there is a shift in attitude of all four men and those who we thought were dull and boring become the heroes and the most respected.
The movie does have one legendary scene of film history: the Dueling banjos scene.
Unfortunately the DVD has no special feaures but with a film this good, you don't really need it. Definately recommended.
