This wiki is dedicated to David Carradine's 1981 cinematic masterpiece. The film took ten years to complete and, while lauded by audiences, it was torn apart by critics upon its initial release, and for that reason it is seldom seen to this day.


Dealing with the inner struggle of a Vietnam veteran and, on a symbolic level, dealing with the struggles of the nation as a whole, the film's message is nonetheless a timeless one, and rings true today just as it did when Carradine first set out to create this marvelous classic.
