Review

Our Score
The versatile HB Halicki not only wrote, directed and starred in this grandaddy of the car-chase movie; he also supplied the vehicles, 93 of which ended up demolished - if you believe the pre-release hype. Influencing a range of films from The Cannonball Run to Death Race 2000, Halicki's story of a ring of professional car thieves, culminates in the now classic 40-minute chase sequence. It was enough of a cult hit to warrant a sequel in 1989, during the filming of which Halicki was tragically killed performing a stunt. The movie was given the big-budget remake treatment with Nicolas Cage and Angelina Jolie in 2000. By the way, the title refers to how long it takes to steal a car.

Summary

Chaos ensues when a crooked insurance investigator is employed to steal 48 vehicles in just a few days, leading to non-stop car chases across the city. Fast-paced thriller, which was remade in 2000 with Nicolas Cage in the lead, starring HB Halicki, Marion Busia and Jerry Daugirda.
