John Travolta plays a common laborers legend in a show that pays tribute to electric organization linemen.
Planning to sparkle a light on disregarded saints of the advanced age, Life at stake rather cobbles together a rough activity drama. The subject is linemen as in “Wichita Lineman” who hazard life and appendage to keep the American electrical lattice working. To the extent popular society gestures to the bold utility specialists go, the element, which had its reality debut at the Napa Valley Film Festival, doesn’t approach the effect of the great Jimmy Webb tune. John Travolta’s lead turn may start merchant enthusiasm for the outside the box highlight, however he’s as shortcircuited by the ungainly screenplay and heading as others in the cast.
Travolta ventures into average workers shoes beforehand worn on the extra large screen by Henry Fonda and Edward G. Robinson, who played linemen in 1937’s Slim and 1941’s Manpower, separately.
