During the chase scene at the end of the picture, Taggart and his boys began firing on the cops following them, and they appeared to be shooting through some sort of opening in the rear of the van. However an exterior view of the Dollar Van revealed that the outside walls of the vehicle were solid. The cops giving chase were shooting blind into the van, and wound up killing all the mobsters inside. See more »
This is one of those crime dramas where not much happens and the main character does things he should not be able to. It involves a self imposed undercover situation where a cop acts like he is going bad to get into a crime group. It is basically dull and silly. It has little if any suspense. The characters aren't all that attractive and the cause is a bit hard to swallow. There is a supposed thread of integrity at stake, but mostly it goes about going right where we think it will go. It's as if they needed to get the movie out without putting much time in on it. The actors sleepwalk and talk in little bursts. The B movie didn't demand much. I can see those kids on Saturday morning enjoying the car chases and the gunshots being fired. They really weren't much interested in a story.
