Good action-packed film complete with goodlooking leading man.
12 February 2001 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

Despite it's probable B-movie status, this film was quite enjoyable. It had everything needed for a taut, action-packed thriller/mystery. Richard Lynch, Hollywood's number one bad-boy, plays David "Delta" Fox, former bagman for the mob who's released from prison to work for the Justice Department. His assignment is to set up his former boss, crooked tax lawyer Harold Arnold, played by Stuart Whitman, by transporting one million dollars of dirty mob money from Miami to San Francisco where the Feds will be waiting to bust Arnold. But the tables are turned on Fox when it's clear someone is out to kill him before he delivers the money to Arnold. Along to way Fox kidnaps Karen, played by Priscilla Barnes, to help him get out of Florida. The plot then shifts to Fox trying to figure out who is out to kill him, as well as who killed his brother Mike. Are they one in the same? There are a couple of car chase scenes to keep you on the edge of your seat as well as the obligatory gunfight or two.

Lynch, who USUALLY plays the bad guy, is more of an anti-hero in this film. You can't help but root for the Fox to get the bad guys, and the girl. His performance was dead on perfect for an up and coming matinee idol, complete with good looks and sex appeal, not to mention great cars to drive! Too bad he didn't get more films/roles like this one as he is totally capable of delivering more than above average performances in everything he does. Barnes was good as Karen, a little ditzy, but that was probably scripted that way to make Fox look even smarter. John Ireland, who plays Justice Department agent Lucas Johnson and with whom Fox is working, is unintentionally funny in his thwarted efforts to catch up with Fox on the road. Lastly Whitman was delightful as the sleazy lawyer with the ultra bimbo girlfriend. The music was stock music, but I still liked it, it set the tone of the late 70's for me. All in all a very good film I think, one that I am proud to have in my video collection.
