PJ (Angelo D'Angelo), and Goose (James Lugton) are bored Australian BMX riders whose bikes have been totaled. Setting off on an intended fishing trip with their friend Judy (Nicole Kidman, in her first big-screen appearance), they stumble instead upon a cache of stolen police walkie-talkies, which they decide to sell for new BMX gear. Unfortunately, the radios had orginally been swiped by a murderous gang of bank robbers, with whom they soon become entangled. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The baby-faced Kidman is easily the best thing in it."
‑ Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
"The Aussies sure have a way with chase films, keeping the moves motivated and logical, with no gratuitous cars flipping over and burning."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Obviously made on a TV budget, the plot is weedy, and the film is saved only by some neat stunts and the splendour of the Australian landscape."
‑ , Time Out
"... Trenchard-Smith directs the BMX action with high energy and gets a lot of personality and camaraderie from the teen actors."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seanax.com
"1980s teen bike adventure with sustained menace, peril."
‑ Tracy Moore, Common Sense Media
"Just hand Trenchard-Smith explosives, an anamorphic lens, and a game cast, and he'll whip up something appealing, preferably with a saucy Aussie wink."
