excellent flick, still no DVD release
15 May 2012 | by trashgangSee all my reviews

This is directed by Gus Trikonis, well known for directing so many series. This flick here is still unavailable on DVD and is only to catch on NTSC ex-rental VHS. It's made in an era were car chasing was the big thing and coppers were the stupid ones. Smokey And The Bandit (1977) was also a perfect example and the series The Dukes Of Hazard (1979) also picked in on that success.

But it's strange that a flick with this cast and a good director still is collector to find. It's also one of those many flicks that involved John Saxon and is still unreleased on DVD. Further it also has William Conrad famous from Jake And The Fatman series as main lead. Claudia Jennings is also here to see and we all know how sadly see died two years later. Too many faces to recognize in this well made flick.

If you like coppers hunting fast cars and flicks about rednecks than this is surely one to pick up. Don't be mislead by the fact that it was said that the nudity had to left out, it do has one shower scene but it was told about the nudity because many females here in this flick were known to go nude in their flicks.
