I realize this film was not well received by critics when it came out, but I think fans of these actors and fans of The Fast and the Furious (1954) will enjoy it. The DVD has no extras.
I do not recomend this movie unless you are a Kiefer completist, and even then i'd say don't waste your time.
Kiefer Sutherland stars as a hitchhiker who kills Brian Mars who has just been hired as a deputy sheriff in a coastal county in Louisiana. Sutherland assumes the identity of his victim and arrives in the county seat to become a new deputy sheriff and nobody suspects otherwise. And this despite the fact that Mars was supposed to be a very good friend of the chief deputy sheriff (Beau Bridges) and also despite Sutherland's tendency to make psycho-type statements such as saying that he likes being a deputy sheriff because he can carry a gun and shove people around.
Perhaps part of the reason why nobody catches on to Sutherland's deception is that in this particular county, incompetence in law enforcement is rampant. The county sheriff, played by Joe Don Baker, is a a good old boy to a comical degree. Even by the low standards of Hollywood, Baker's exaggerated Southern fried sheriff behavior is absurd. If The Killing Time was a comedy, then it might work. However, in an alleged straight action drama, Baker's act is screwy.
The chief deputy sheriff is not much better. Despite the fact that his ex-girlfriend is now married to a wealthy San Francisco real estate developer who has a nice estate down in the Louisiana county, he keeps on messing around with her to the point of going to San Francisco to attend parties that both she and her husband attend. This on a salary that Bridges's character says is a bit short of $20,000.Read more ›
