| TV disaster movie counts down the hours to the ultimate pile-up...
Satisfactory movie-of-the-week in the disaster-movie genre, prevalent in the mid-1970s. Over the July 4th weekend in southern California, police sergeant Robert Conrad tells his men whatever could go wrong will go does. Buddy Ebsen and Harriet Nelson are loving oldsters (she has weeks to live); Vera Miles is a divorcée swept off her feet by romantic trucker David Groh; Scott Jacoby is a car thief hijacked by a fugitive couple (all are involved in the shooting of rookie cop Tommy Lee Jones, whose wife just had a baby); and Sue Lyon is a biker chick who, just hours before, attempted to engage her buddies in the gang-rape of Miles in broad daylight. All are involved in the violent freeway pile-up which begins and ends the movie in a flashback frame. The action is well-filmed and edited, and the characters are surprisingly interesting if unsavory. Conrad keeps an amusingly cool head throughout and anchors the story with his macho charm.
