A poor man's Wages of Fear Movie Lover: from somewhere out there -- May, 12, 2006

A poor man's Wages of Fear about powder monkeys who work with dynamite. When one of the men is killed in an accident, a dynamite contractor falls on hard times. He's lucky enough to find a job blasting out a tunnel, but then soon loses a dynamite truck when the brakes fail (which is pretty great action scene for a cheapo B-flick - intense!). Johnny, a college boy, decides to quit school and follow in his deceased father's footsteps and go into demolition. He has a conflict with Gunnar, another powder monkey, because they're both after the same girl and also have different ideas about how to set dynamite. They brawl, but Johnny's proven right when Gunnar's miscalculation costs the life of Hard Rock Mason, their grizzled old tobacco-chewing partner. Then Johnny gets trapped in a tunnel cave-in and Gunnar is the only one with the expertise to save him. Will Gunnar take the opportunity to get rid of his rival, or will he do the right thing and save the day? The answer probably won't surprise you, but you'll be entertained nonetheless. Fast-paced solid little blue-collar B-pic that's made more interesting by its unusual subject matter and realistic, gritty atmosphere. Runs a fast 68 minutes.
