The truck is what I liked!
31 October 2007 | by (WILMINGTON, NC) – See all my reviews

The title makes sense, the plot has its use, the cast chosen for the movie is really great. Though this was not a big screen hopeful, it was perfect for the TV. "Time Bomb" is a very fair movie to see, and the characters there are amazing. Morgan Fairchild plays Renee De Salles; a beautiful, but deadly villain. Billy Dee Williams plays Wes Tanner, Merlin Olsen plays Jake Calahan, and Joseph Bottoms plays Dan. They get to ride in a armored white GMC Aero Astro, that carries plutonium. They go across the US until they get hijacked by DeSalles and her crew. She kills Calahan, and they disable the truck. Once they fix it up, it would go like it was the Knight Industries 2000(K.I.T.T.) only heavier. Wes and Dan go out and take out the hijackers one-by-one until Wes gets his revenge on DeSalles, on the plane. Everyone comes back, only with a price. Wes is the only one who has to break the sad news, although his wife found out herself he was dead. Dan was wounded, and Wes had to console two women, which was honorable. The movie was fine, the truck is what I really liked! 3 out of 5 stars!
