If there's one reason to track down this movie, it's the music!
8 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie as a kid, and the most awe-inspiring thing is the incredible soundtrack by Sylvester Levay (creator of the Airwolf TV series music). It was so good, in fact, that I recorded it on cassette tape, a tape I still have to this day. Electronic music virtuoso Sylvester Levay virtually all but disappeared from the TV music theme after his great success with the popular musical Elisabeth. I hope that he will return one day to his roots as a TV musician.

However, the movie itself, as I remember, was forgettable, the only thing I remember is that it was a truck out of control (kind of a predecessor to Speed) Billy Dee Williams was fairly good as the lead.
