“This is a very funny movie, but at the same time keeps a solid plot, making this a very enjoyable movie.
“ I would have enjoyed it more without all the blasphemous exclamations out of Keifer Sutherland's mouth.
“ Maybe the writer &/or director couldn't think of a better way to keep the story moving (once it gets to its generic conclusions involving a chase and some minor violence on the train, it's only passable and at worst pretty trite), so they had to insert a fluffy commune/hippie piece with Hopper the only one making it only minutely worthwhile.
“ At that moment I was transformed back to the late 1960s, a recent college grad trying to find my way in a confusing and rapidly-changing culture.
“Regardless of where one is politically, the film moves very fast, is very entertaining, and has almost no credibility.
“ It doesn't matter if the character Huey Walker was real or not or if the situation he was in actually happened, the story was entertaining and it had a great plot.
“ For the most part, this is an enjoyable "flashback" for most folks, a look back at the wild and crazy late 1960s.
“ this film had all the makings of a pretty boring film.
“ So, in short, all of this is actually pretty entertaining, with some funny bits scattered all around, and a great flow for dialog that goes around during the train ride between Buckner and Walker (I also enjoyed, even as slight amusing stuff, the scenes in the woods at night).
“ A really good early 90s film (set in the late 80s) with great performances and strong, nuanced writing and humor and a few intriguing plot twists and turns.
“ I think the story is more compelling for people who lived through the 60s as a hippie or at least indulged in the hippie lifestyle.
“ Greats like Dennis Hopper and Keifer Sutherland are at their best, it's a clever story, very entertaining, and thought provoking enough to make you wonder what the heck happened to a once bullish youth not afraid to get nose-to-nose with a Fascist-style government.
