great 70s chase film about a trio of gearheads who are running from the law. it’s a cross between two other classics – two-lane blacktop and vanishing point. it’s better than blacktop but not as good as vanishing point, which predates this one and is more of a parable. the car chases were a bit of a let down as they tended to end too soon, but they were nice enough anyway. a nice mix of good and cheesy dialogue delivered by subpar actors makes for a fun flick. the ending is an homage to vanishing point. there’s no decade in film like the 70s; it’s more raw and uninhibited than any before or since.
