A New World Pictures Film
Original Theatrical Release Date: March 1st, 1985
DVD Release: No :(
An Updating of The Defiant Ones, starring Fame's Irene Cara and Paper Moon's Tatum O'neal. Make no mistake about it, New World Picture's CERTAIN FURY is more of an exploitation picture than a sincere mismatched buddies on the run picture.
The movie's tagline "Two Academy Award Winning Stars... In the one motion picture that hurtles them from innocence - to fear - to rage!" Should tell you all you need to know. It's a lot of wacky fun. That's if your idea of fun is shoot outs with cops and in courthouses, crazy run-ins with deadly pimps and of course, heroin dens. This movie has it all... And a pretty good score, too.
Directed by the man who brought you Jake & Maggie... Stephen Gyllenhaal (He also wrote 1985's other exploitation goodie THE NEW KIDS)
