      Ruth Batchelor Los Angeles Free Press It has the pretentions of Easy Rider or Sugarland Express, but there's no message in it, and it's too unbelievable for intelligent people to take seriously. Oct 30, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member This was on a double feature disc with a similarly themed Peter Fonda film (Fighting Mad) and I enjoyed it fairly well, though the chase elements reminded me for all the world of Smokey And The Bandit, which would send me in search of that film next. Rental. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Two young adults witness a sheriff kill his deputy and become hunted by mostly incompetent area law enforcement. Has too many car chases and crashes to count, all with a bad banjo score. Kay Lenz can only make up for so much. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Stephen McHattie is a rightfully pessimistic, drifting Detroit Man who, like John Rambo after him (seriously, First Blood follows this plot nearly beat for beat), is hassled to the point of violence by corrupt local lawmen who car chase and car crash all over creation. Along the way he's "helped" by sweetheart Kay Lenz and do-gooder attorney Eddie Albert. It's a solid Roger Corman venture with the right amounts of violence and nudity and with a third reel appearance from bad driver Dick Miller fans of this type of tomfoolery can't go wrong. VF. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member Real dumb. I really hope this isn't based on a true story. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member A pretty good movie.Nothing I'd want to go out & buy but if somebody gave it to me for free..... I actually found myself cheering for the drifter & waitress, Hoping when it seemed like they were about to get caught that they'd be able to get away.I'm not too sure about the way it ended.Something about it was kinda off for me Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Two young adults witness a sheriff kill his deputy and become hunted by mostly incompetent area law enforcement.
