New York private eye Shamus McCoy likes girls, drink and gambling, but by the look of his flat business can't be too hot. Slapstick black comedy about a man Reynolds who finds that he hasn't much longer to live and has bungled his attempts at suicide. At the instigation of a grieving father, a Los Angeles cop investigates the suspicious circumstances of a girl's apparent suicide. Ernest 'Stick' Stickley returns from prison, and very soon he gets involved with his old friend in a drug-running deal that goes sour.

Hired by a rich investor, he tries to walk the line, An ex con teams up with federal agents to help them with breaking up a moonshine ring. Gator McKlusky who's serving time in an Arkansas prison, finds out his younger brother is murdered by the corrupt town Sheriff J. Wanting revenge, he agrees with the terms of going undercover as a moonshine runner for the feds and informing them of any important information to put away Connors. However it's Gator's personal quest of his brother's death, which pushes him to test the boundaries and power that Connors owns. Quite likable, and truly a thick southern slice of crudely good ol' fun and rousing mishaps.

Burt Reynolds' charismatic appeal was specially made for the part, and along side him is a terrifically well-served cast including the despicable Ned Betty, glorious Jennifer Billingsley, amusing Bo Hopkins, twitchy Matt Clark, live wire Diane Ladd and a rigid R. Splendid line-up, but Reynolds was the real scene-stealer. The story might be a simple revenge tale with some currents involving racism and narrow-mindlessness, but it's a exhilarating pot boiler that's neatly drawn up with plenty of flesh hanging off it, and its zips onto one scene after another with burning conviction.

The authenticity of the sweaty southern setting is beautifully captured with Edward Rosson's sharp photography doing the trick. Be it during the quiet moments, or the well-engineered, gut-busting brawls and blistering car chases. Even Charles Bernstein's wonderfully flavoured and titillating music arrangement dominates and goes a long way to cementing the film's potent personality.

White Lightning (cider)

Director Joseph Sargent rapidly, rough n' tumble style, goes down well the tautly wry script and delivers the action with the right intensity. Amongst the tough suspense and sweet fooling, there are some genuinely moving scenes. Always compelling, and one of Reynolds best performances.

Connors and almost makes up for a lack of engagement. He is certainly intimidating with his large appearance, bad teeth and receding hairline deliberately shaved that way. He almost looks like a Nazi Officer with those round spectacles, but alas he does little.

On the flip side, there is a decent sequence where Gator visits his parents. There he must face his fathers disapproval of him handing over names of folk involved in illegal liquor to the Feds. The opening sequence of the movie shows Sheriff Connors slowly rowing out into the middle of an isolated swamp, either at dusk or early dawn. Behind him is Gator's brother bound and gagged in another small boat.

They reach a point and stop. The sheriff then shoots the bottom of the boat with a shotgun and rows away leaving the restrained young man to slowly drown as the boat sinks. This sequence is dark, sinister, brutal and most definitely has a 'Deliverance' vibe about it the landscapes are definitely another form of character in this movie.

A strange blend of tones in this movie for sure, a bit hit and miss. White Lightning may not have aged well in the past 40 odd years, but in some ways, that's part of the charm. The start of the Burt Reynolds' "Hick Flick" run, and it has to be noted for that. Gator, however, has his own agenda and it has nothing to do with his altruistic nature. It seems that Sheriff J. Connors Ned Beatty of Bogen County is not only one of the biggest moonshiners in Arkansas, he's also responsible for killing Gator's brother.

And Gator wants revenge. One of the coolest things about White Lightning is that it presents Burt Reynolds as an actor at the top of his game. This was a Burt Reynolds who seemed to actually care about the final product and not just yucking it up with his buddies on screen. White Lightning was made before Burt became a clown, mugging for the camera. That's not to say there isn't any humor in White Lightning? Burt is joined by phenomenal cast.

In addition to Ned Beatty who's perfect as the Sheriff , R. In fact, I can't think of a single actor that bothered me.

The movie was helped tremendously by the decision to film in rural Arkansas. I lived in the South all my life and everything from the locations to the sweat dripping off Burt's chin had a feeling of authenticity. It all felt real to me. Finally, the plot is just terrific, mixing in just the right amount of high speed car chases, brutal looking fight scenes, and dramatic conversations. It drew me in right from the start and held my attention throughout.

Overall, it's a well-made, entertaining movie. More Top Movies Trailers Forums.
