| "The Banzi Runner" is a story based on fact.....
"The Banzi Runner" was based on real events that had taken place in the Las Vegas desert. The Banzi Runner reveals how the face of evil can look innocent but be very deadly...Just like real life....sometimes the energy of evil looks harmless. I found the movie more interesting knowing that the events that took place in this movie were based on fact. It makes me sad to think that drugs, sex and evil are the things that thrill seekers are looking for. The bad guys crashed and burned ( were caught and jailed) fortunately, the stunt driver of the yellow Pantera (Al Manning) is still driving cars safely and enjoying the good life. Signed, Mrs. Manning
