After Snow got pulled out of his burning vehicle and thrown due to the following explosion of the tank-truck we can clearly see his glasses on the lying on the ground, which remains there as McQuade throws him into his car and drives off.

Norris' Best, Bar None!
15 July 1999 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

This is actually a pretty nifty little action film, fashioned as a modern day "spaghetti western." Solid direction by B-Movie veteran Steve Carver and a well-written script combine with a first rate performance by Norris (his absolute best to date....this character could be seen as a prototype to his current smash hit on TV, "Walker: Texas Ranger")to make this great escapist entertainment. David Carradine is also memorable as the chief villain of the story.

I saw this film in a packed theatre when it was first released and the audience just ate it up. The scene where he drives his truck out of a grave that the bad guys have buried him in was a particular crowd-pleaser!
