After giving up on making her wear the bomb, Cisco places the bomb back in the cabinet. As he turns back to Kathy, both her wrists are now cuffed, and the chain is placed behind the table leg, not cuffed to it. See more »

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.
