Review:

In this made-for-TV thriller, Bob Boyd (Anthony Edwards) is an amnesia-stricken geologist assigned to do a survey in the small town where he was a victim in the car crash that resulted in his memory loss. Knowing that he may not have the same name as before, and that his disfigured face has been changed by cosmetic surgery, Boyd realizes he may be a stranger to those who may have known him. When he begins poking around to find out about the incident, the geologist becomes entangled in a family feud between the Mattersons, rich landowners who run the town, and their rivals the Trinavants, who lost two of their family members in the crash and who own land that the Mattersons desperately want to develop on. Was Boyd a member of the Trinavant family, was he an assassin hired to kill them, or was he someone else with the misfortune of being in the crash? And whom can he truly trust to provide him with the right answers? As he digs deeper in his search for the truth, Boyd becomes entangled with women in both families, the Matterson mob begin to make physical threats against him, and he finally begins to uncover the truth about the terrible events that left him physically and emotionally scarred. Despite its made-for-TV look, Landslide is a well-made, suspenseful film with some engaging twists and turns. The movie also features Melody Anderson (Flash Gordon) and Joanna Cassidy (Blade Runner). Kudos to screenwriter Peter Palliser (adapting Desmond Bagley's novel) for not wrapping up everything cleanly but for leaving lingering questions at the end. --Bryan Reesman
