Raw Courage's lead actor Ronny Cox also wrote and produced this survivalist action film, sort of begging the question if he made this thing to compensate for his character getting dispatched so easily in the similarly themed masterpiece Deliverance. Here Cox' character starts out as the nervous middle aged wimp, but he proves himself capable of savagery and murder.
It's a pretty modest and low budget movie, but it still delivers the goods. Dirt bikes explode, a few dudes get brained by rocks, a nice impalement, and lots of rolling down slopes. There is plenty of high energy photography from horseback or motorcycle, these have a pretty high frame rate and look kind of neat.
I'm a fan of this sort of minimal, low concept action film, so it need only be moderately competent to satisfy me, but I thought this was a lot better than it needed to be.
