Safe cabby
24 August 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Radio Cab Murder is well made, low budget B film starring Jimmy Hanley as taxi driver who sees a bank being robbed and gives chase.

However it turns out that Hanley is an ex-con safe cracker who has attempted to go straight. The police think he has all the credentials to infiltrate the gang and they conspire to have him fired from his job.

However the gang leader is cunning and it seems always one step ahead of the police and Hanley.

There are several twists and turns, the film has enough suspense. Hanley is an amiable lead, several well known faces pop up such as Sam Kydd and Frank Thornton.
