This had Class B written all over it, yet it was still very entertaining and not a bad action film. For an R-rated film, it was surprisingly free of some things you normally see and hear. Some of the scenes in the bars were crude and the beginning had Rambo-like violence with little credibility, but the majority of this was a well-done film.
A big thing it had going for it: it should keep everyone's interest all the way. It certainly did with me. This is an unknown movie, a real "sleeper." You can kind of guess that since there are only two of us who have reviewed it, as of this writing.
The opening scene is real attention-grabber: six minutes of almost no dialog and a wild action. That about sums up the film: pretty wild. The lead actor, Terrence Knox, is not someone I was familiar with, but he was okay. I was sorry David Warner didn't have more lines as he's usually interesting and I was surprised Yaphet Kotto's character kept his cool. I kept waiting for him to blow up.
Note: the cover on the VHS box is misleading. They show the hero being dragged by a truck. In the film, that happens to the bad guy, not him.
