On June 2018 Intrada Records released for the first time a long-awaited soundtrack album (500 units) of Andrew Powell's original score for the movie.

(2017), Powell's comeback to film music in years, actually concentrating within just a few months Powell's two new soundtrack records in a row more than thirty years after Ladyhawke (1985)'s soundtrack first release (1985).

I'm told that this was Burt Lancaster's last film. I happen to like his acting, but the script for this effort could have been better. There are the adults, who are rather shallow caricatures of real people with problems. The kids who play grandpa's grandchildren, however, make the best part of this opus. I could almost see myself in their places so many years ago. Of course, my siblings and I wouldn't have done some of the things these grandkids end up doing. The last 10 minutes of the film make up for some rather boring parts spent on the adult characters.
