Rating: 3/4 -- The movie is right on the rock & roll, but the alternative time and place are mysteriously convincing -- especially if, like me, you believe the most beautiful post-war American cars were Studebakers. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- A typically interesting effort from the vastly underrated Walter Hill that's improved with age.

Rating: 8/10 -- A grandiloquent compatriot to their later masterpiece, Geronimo... More exuberantly stylized than The Warriors, it seemingly stands in stark relief to the carborundum asperity of movies like Hard Times and The Driver... Full Review

An extravagantly stylized pulp burlesque that is at once an objectively lousy picture and just about the coolest damn thing I've ever seen. Full Review

It is stellar action cinema that thinks outside the box and it's worth watching again and again. Full Review
