Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"...an unusually tedious chase movie..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"just a dumb little car chase movie"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"...noteworthy mainly because a part of the deal to make it allowed Ron Howard the chance to direct his own next picture."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
