The most annoying thing about this movie is the sound. Between Raoul Kraushaar's score, indistinguishable from the one he did for "Wanted: Dead or Alive" (or just about any other TV show he ever scored) and the "skidding-gravel" sound effect--the SAME "skidding-gravel" sound effect, endlessly repeated, no mater how much gravel there is to skid or how steep the incline down which it will be skidding--after a while, you just don't care what happens to any of the characters, good or bad. Other than that, it's not a bad suspense film. You hope that Payne and Patten will beat the bad guys, but it's fairly entertaining trying to figure out how.
