Action-Packed
20 August 2004 | by Snow LeopardSee all my reviews

This action-packed feature is interesting and at times exciting. The story has a lot of detail, although some of the details are a little unclear until you watch it again to see how it all fits together. Though there are these few pieces of the story that are slightly obscure, in general it does a very good job of telling the story and of keeping the action moving.

The story starts with the "Yeggs" planning and committing a bank robbery, and then focuses on the tense aftermath of their crime. Quite a bit of detail and action are packed into just over 10 minutes of running time, yet it moves at a good pace. This kind of story is now commonplace, but this was certainly one of the more ambitious efforts of its time. It still works rather well, if you enjoy these very old movies.
