Moonfire was shot almost entirely out of doors, which was supposed to enhance the realism but which makes the film look all the more like a home movie. Charles Napier plays a trucker who is sucked into a blackmail plot by sinister forces. Ex-boxer Sonny Liston is given special billing as "The Farmer," but a better designation would have been "The Mumbler." Richard Egan, who has top billing, looks as though he was available for only half a day--and late in the day at that. Even the color processing looks cheap in the sublimely forgettable Moonfire. Nice trucks, though.
