When convict Reed suspects his wife, St. John, is being unfaithful, he breaks out of prison with his friend McShane. They leave several bodies lying in their wake as they blast their way across the country to meet St. John and their inevitable violent deaths. Strictly for those who like
their action hard and fast. The direction breaks the land speed record, maintaining a tense mood and keeping excitement running at a fevered pitch. The violence is sometimes quite brutal, made more believable by Reed and McShane in some good performances.
