Good run of the mill hijack thriller with two under rated stars
This is the story of two friends who end up driving for a trucking company that has become plagued by hijackings. As things go on one falls for the daughter of the company owner, things get complicated as the hijackings turn deadly and the friends realize that there is much more going on than meets the eye.
Montan Moreland was paired several times with Frankie Darro. What was great about this was that Moreland was always portrayed as Darro's equal even if he was just being comedy relief. This put a nice spin on things and proved that you could get away with a fair representation of how people got along. Better for the audience was the fact that the interplay became sharper and more real. We end up with two friends talking to each other and not two actors.
The movie itself is not one of the best that Moreland and Darro did together. The plot is a bit herky jerky and there was one or two times that I thought things were being kept in motion just to meet a required running time. Allowing for that this is a good little thriller and certainly worth a bag of popcorn and an hour of your time. You may not remember it three days later but you certainly will enjoy it while its on.
