Very good movie
26 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is a good chase movie with very good acting from Stephanie Powers. Three ladies run out of gas at night in the Bronx. While looking for some gas, the antagonize a local gang and the chase is on. I found the story easy to follow, some twists, good acting all around but especially from Powers. Are these 3 Women going to be able to Survive the Night? You will have a good time finding out. Helen Shaver also plays her part well as one of the Women. I also liked how this film showed the gang members going into a frenzy to try to find the Girls. This movie is well worth your time if you happen to have a chance to see it, you wont be disappointed.
