Editorial Reviews

Brace for an explosive story of violence and reprisal set against the stunning backdrop of the Hawaiian Isles. To avenge the death of his murdered daughter, charter boat captain Sam Moran (Richard Boone) becomes a one-man vigilante squad taking on the wealthy, drugged-up punk that killed her - and the rich and powerful that protect him. A memorable big-screen villain in hits like The War Lord, Hombre and Big Jake, Have Gun - Will Travel star Boone here plays an ordinary man pushed to extraordinary limits. Directed by two-time Emmy winner Lamont Johnson from a story by bestselling thriller writer John D. MacDonald (the source novelist of Cape Fear and A Flash of Green), Kona Coast co-stars Vera Miles, Joan Blondell, Kent Smith and Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Famer Duane Eddy.

A different role for him, but he is a great actor.
E. G. Hall
It's a miracle that Boone was even able to get Blondell and Miles to be in it.

The story is pretty generic, although Richard Boone is very good.

Warner Archive has unearthed another forgotten gem from the late sixties, Director Lamont Johnson's 'KONA COAST'-1968, a virtual one man show for actor Richard Boone who also executive produced and probably believed in the material. Boone finds out his daughter was injected with heroin at a sex party and turns up dead on the sea coast. The police hush it up as a drowning incident but Boone thinks otherwise turning the films running time into a vigilante/male odyssey culminating in bringing justice his style to the thugs responsible. The head thug is underrated Steve Ihnat who always gave memorable villainous portrayals in his movie/television forays in the late sixties/early seventies. Boone is joined by other venerable actors: Vera Miles who never looked more beautiful; Joan Blondell looking like a feisty version of celebrity chef Paula Dean; and Kent Smith playing against type as an old beach bum-like saloon keeper who all aid Boone in his quest. The Direction by Johnson is adequate showing his early skills from television and graduating to such films as 'THE GROUNDSTAR CONSPIRACY'-1972. The story by John McDonald adapted to the screen by Gil Ralston seems to have been thought out for Boone in mind. Always playing scraggily, intense loners whether in Westerns or thrillers, he always gave his all and is perfect for this film. The beautiful photography by Joseph LaShelle shows off the Hawaiian locations perfectly complimenting the face to face Boone/Ihnat battle at the climax. The funky jazz score by Jack Marshall ices the cake making the film an enjoyable sixties time capsule romp. Warner releases it as a DVD-R through Amazon in a nice 1.85 transfer with no extras. If you are a Richard Boone fan, you won't want to miss this great late-in-his-career excursion.

I first saw this movie about 40 years ago ... on a black and white TV no less. This was long before I knew anything about Hawai'i, Kona or how corny movies could be made based solely on the past glory of a washed up TV actor, in this case, Richard Boone. The plot line is totally irrelevant; you watch this movie for the sheer fun of seeing how poorly people act and how silly a story line somebody could come up with. You will watch this and think "Is this where they got the idea for Magnum PI?"

Obviously because he directed (wrote and produced?) this giddy shindig, Richard Boone gets all the women. His grotesque features, crappy acting and bizarre role make it so very creepy. I could hear this voice in my head saying "Really, Mr Boone, you thought this was going to revive your career?"

Highly recommended.

This is one of the best movies ever made and my favorite movie. It is hardcore 60's film, which is unusual as most films in the 60's soft pedaled the 60's. Being a huge Richard Boone fan this film is everything a Richard Boone fan could want. He knows how to make love to women and this film shows that off.
The movie works on a lot of different levels and really says a lot about that era and what was happening.

Excellent movie,Richard Boone part was excellent. I loved the story line and the only thing that didn't care for was the age of the young women. The 20 year old were great in Paladin but at 50 years old they just didn't look right.

The story is pretty generic, although Richard Boone is very good. But, the movie did contain some great shots of old Kona, back in the 60s when, at times, it was rather wild. (I've lived in Kona for over 40 years and was here when it was like the old West).
