Intent on seeing the Cahulawassee River before it's dammed and turned into a lake, outdoor fanatic Lewis Medlock takes his friends on a canoeing trip they'll never forget into the dangerous American back-country. A squad of National Guards on an isolated weekend exercise in the Louisiana swamp must fight for their lives when they anger local Cajuns by stealing their canoes.
Without live ammunition and in a strange country, their experience begins to mirror the Vietnam experience. Upon first viewing this film seems to just be another above average entry to the bayou sub-genre. Added to the likes of Deliverance and the first Rambo. However look closely and this tale of unexperienced guardsmen fighting off psychotic cajuns takes on another meaning.
The whole film can be taken as a sly metaphor for the Vietnam war which took place almost a decade and a half before the film was made. On one side you have the inexperienced and overequipped guardsmen, perfectly representing the technology and youth of the American forces. On the other side is the cajuns.

Small in number but still very effective utilising there knowledge of the area and using nature itself to lay traps. So what at first sight seems an action packed thriller is also a gritty metaphor for one of the horrors of the last century. The film is well directed and paced. Right from the start the pace doesn't flag.
The fact that the cast are mostly unknowns only adds to the tension,the audience not knowing who will bite it next.
All in all an exciting thriller and well worth watching. Start your free trial.
