| No spark in this "Lightning"
Sam Elliott's name might attract viewers to this made-in-Australia production but they're likely to be disappointed. He's no more than "adequate" in a script which has a tired, trite feel to it and which soon settles for "going through the motions." Some "Outback" locations around Broken Hill provide a bit of interest but not nearly enough to make this worth a look. Robert Culp is curiously cast as the villain and he occasionally rises above the material. (Sadly, despite all the heat and dust, Sam Elliott doesn't get to do a shower scene even though, at about age 42, he'd still look good walking around with just a towel knotted around his waist.)
