Storyline

Fearful that their star witness might be murdered, two attorneys hire a protector to bring him from Los Angeles to New York. Jesse Crowder (Fred Williamson) is a no-nonsense tough guy. He buddies up with the witness, an accountant, and they hit the road. Outwitting their foes means taking all manner of conveyance, including automobile, train, and airplane. At every turn, Crowder and the witness face a variety of attacks, including gunfire and knife-wielding villains. At ease with the ladies, Crowder manages the entire journey with shirt unbuttoned and stogie clenched firmly in his teeth. Written by Ken Miller <wkmiller704@yahoo.com>

Jesse Crowder as his worst!
26 March 1999 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

Much as I am a Fred Williamson fan, this is the a very poor man's action film. Barely played as a main feature in Los Angeles area (mostly second feature runs with no ads), this movie has Jesse Crowder assigned to protect an overweight accountant across the state line to testify against a mobster. What could've been a blazing non-stop action films, this film takes the low ride and become very boring fast. The movie poster promised a top of the train running chase sequence which wasn't in the film. In fact, the video box claims he has to protect a girl (!). I am suprised Williamson didn't get any name stars to appear in this film, for most of his past works do have familar character actors (maybe they all turned it down!). The film is so non-budget that when Crowder's chauffer get out of car to open the door for Crowder, it was a two door car and not a limo (!). I love the Jesse Crowder series and Fred Williamson will always be a icon of the 70's action scene, and it's too bad I didn't enjoy this one.
