But, in the next shot, Frank and his gang easily open the doors on the car's right side with plenty of space to get out and the two cars are about even. See more »

A very solid B-movie...well worth seeing.
27 July 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The film begins with a gang robbing a bank and shooting a teller. In the process, however, one of the gang members was shot. They take him to a doctor...who realizes they are crooks and tries to tell the police...and he's killed. Soon, they approach Dr. Steven Bishop* (Regis Toomey) and convince him to help. However, over time the doctor starts to realize that these men are no goodnicks.

The acting was very solid in this one thanks to Toomey and Howard Da Silva (who always was excellent as a heavy) and fortunately the script and direction were nice as well. Despite a stereotype that B-movies are bad movies, this one is well made and enjoyable...and well worth your time. It also didn't hurt that the finale was so tough and exciting.

*Not to be confused with the pop singer who sang the themes to "Tootsie" and "Animal House"!
