Not bad for a "drive-in" type movie
6 April 2001 | by (Dunstable, Ma) – See all my reviews

I had my doubts about this movie because it was a Roger Corman production. This usually means very low production values. I was surprised as to how good it was. What helped was that it was on a preminum channel with no cuts, edits or commercials. The only thing that I did not like was the car chases because they were speeded up way too much. I was almost like the Keystone Cops. I don't mind chases that are slightly speeded up but these were like a cartoon. The performances by Steven McHattie, Kay Lenz, Lonny Chapman and Eddie Albert were all first rate. I recommned it as a Sat. afternoon movie.
