#8 in my Unbelievable April 2017 marathon.
Not the least bit groundbreaking, though it does cast skinny Malcolm McDowell as the Quizzical Man's action hero in a role where he professes creative, emboldened pacifism less than 10 movie minutes before buying a gun. Which he justifies with "if the worst comes to the worst" like it isn't everyone else's excuse. Hence the movie's slippery path to sticktoitiveness.
Not the least bit challenging, either, as Mary Steenburgen's Amy sounds off a bit like feminism on AutoPlay. As dynamic as her performance is here, and as far ahead as it is compared to her part in Back to the Future Part III, I'm not sure 1979 American "Amy Robbins" is any more classic a movie character than Elle Woods. (Who I regard as a bit of a joke.)
But, every last person involved clearly put everything they had into it and it shows.
