An embittered father blows the lid off a government cover-up.
His son is dead. He is dying. Overnight, Dan Logan’s peaceful world has been shattered. And the only thing Dan has left is Rage.
A military installation has accidentally dumped a fatal dose of experimental nerve gas over Logan’s Wyoming ranch and purposely dropped a veil of secrecy over the “incident.” With no one to turn to for help, Logan becomes both judge…and executioner.
George C. Scott, an Academy Award winner for Patton, stars both before and behind the camera in this blistering thriller. As Logan, the embittered father who sets out on a hell-bent rampage of revenge, Scott adds another brilliant, bone-deep performance to his impressive list of screen successes. And as a debuting director, Scott draws equally riveting portrayals from his skilled supporting cast, including Richard Basehart, Barnard Hughes and a young Martin Sheen, in one of his first major film roles, as the cool, manipulative medical specialist whose specialty is deception.
Like The China Syndrome and Warning Sign, Rage is an uncompromising story that’s as terrifying and vivid as today’s headlines. Rage, said the Los Angeles Times, “really is enraged – a powerhouse polemic against the kind of military-industrial shenanigans which makes the fiction so appallingly close to the truth.”
