Typical of the seventies stuff

I would have expected some comments for this TV film. After all, it is directed by Andrew McLaglen, a Hollywood vet, who gave us many westerns and adventure movies a bit in the John Ford style. This feature sounds familiar for those who like seventies thrillers and crime dramas; especially the disaster movies like thrillers. Think for instance of ROLLER COASTER or TWO MINUTE WARNING, with always many suspense atmospheres and different people - mostly guest stars from the old Hollywood era - shown at the beginning and whose fates will collide further in the story. And of course a psychopath. I won't repeat the topic above, it would be useless, but I liked this movie. I admit that I love seventies. This is a pretty good time waster. Effective, sharp, a good piece of work with many surprising moments. It is far better than the Lenny Maltin's rate said, which is below average.
