    The movie is epic and how they filmed it is a pretty interesting read.
    Acting from Voight is superb.
    This guy went from Deliverance to this Manny character.
    Manny reminds me of my father and looks like him a bit as my father had a long period with the handlebar mustache.
    They both had the same crazy mentality.
    They really didn't need Rebecca De Mornay in it but probably some studio head insisted on some woman element in the storyline.
    I dunno... when you have time give it a watch and let us know what you think.

    I really enjoyed the movie and appreciate the recommendation. Nice early-career appearance from Tiny Lister (career high was The 5th element IIRC) who played the guard duped into sneaking out Manny in the laundry cart. Rest in Peace Tiny, I enjoyed your films. Revenge at all costs was refreshing, since in today's world people get the pussified narrative of it's not worth your life to get even when really, it's situational in regards to this - one size does not fit all. As you say Voight did a great job. I would say my favorite role he did was in the classic movie Heat (Nate). Loved the absolute intensity of purpose the characters in Runaway Train had. The bravado of Warden Ranken was denied. Obviously, Eric Roberts did a fantastic job as he has in so many movies.

    This is the era of movies from which to draw much entertainment from - although good movies do still get made, it's just much rarer.
