Good action thriller typical of those released in the 70's
18 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

Hasn't turned up too often on television but was good. Nice casting, with Peter Fonda the lead but not actually leading the robbery. That was left to Hugh O'Brien, Christopher Lee and O.J.Simpson. Maud Adams always good to look at on the screen and Telly Savalas as a security officer who had a dark side to him. Nice soundtrak, might still be available if you look hard enough.
