From Roger Spottiswoode, the outstanding director of Terror Train, Under Fire, Shoot to Kill, Turner & Hooch and Tomorrow Never Dies, comes this rousing, tongue-in-cheek action-adventure film that speculates the fate of the infamous, elusive skyjacker. On Thanksgiving Eve, 1971, a modern-day outlaw named J.R. Meade (Treat Williams, Deep Rising), alias D.B. Cooper, parachuted out of an airliner somewhere over the Pacific Northwest timberland. He took with him $200,000 in stolen cash and the secret of his destination. Thousands of police, the FBI and the military couldn’t locate him. Only one man had the ability to track him down—Bill Gruen (Robert Duvall, Tender Mercies), Meade’s former Green Beret instructor. Through the expansive mountain wilderness, down treacherous whitewater rapids, a fascinating clash of wits unfolds. Two men pitted against each other, equal in skill and daring, passionately in pursuit of different goals—each knowing only one can win. Also starring Kathryn Harrold (Raw Deal), Ed Flanders (True Confessions), Paul Gleason (Die Hard) and R.G. Armstrong (White Lightning), with a score by James Horner (Titanic).
