BETTER than you'd think, but the title is dumb!
26 March 2003 | by (fremont ca) – See all my reviews

This is a pretty good film, really. If you review the cast list, and like them, then you should find this tv movie better than average. Except for Victoria Principal's accent (which you get over once the movie gets going), and Gary Collins, this turns out to be a decent story, with a credible script and an some enjoyable action to it. Sheree North is outstanding, playing against type as one of the Hi-Jackers. Stella Stevens is always good, though her part is rather small. I'd like to get this on tape or dvd someday. Just some fun, mindless suspenseful entertainment. Enjoy!
