Two Texas border guards find a jeep buried for 20 years in the desert, with a skeleton, a scoped rifle, and a box with $800,000 in cash. They decide to keep the money, but quietly check up on the info they find. Soon the Feds are running all over the place, and it looks like jeep maybe linked to the JFK assassination. But the Feds are trying to cover it up, and eliminate anyone involved with the jeep. Written by

When the director William Tannen
hired Tangerine Dream to score "Flashpoint" he told them not to do the end title song because he had one he was using - "Sympathy For The Devil" by The Rolling Stones
. Tangerine Dream said it was the perfect song to end the film with. They scored the entire film but this piece. The studio felt the song was too expensive and instead gave the assignment to an assistant who worked for one of the vice presidents. It was voted "worst" end title song for 1984 by Leonard Matlin, the film critic. See more
The movie is supposed to take place in Texas near the Mexican border, but appears to be filmed around Tucson. During the accident scene with the oil tanker, downtown Tucson can be seen in the background, and saguaro cactus grow only in the Sonoran Desert of Southern Arizona and Northern Mexico (not in Texas).

Like my Daddy always said, "If you can't get out of it, get into it."
I thought your daddy used to say, "If you can't fix it, fuck it."
He said that, too.
