Reminiscent of those mid-to-late 80s pulpy B-movie gems that Hollywood would throw out, this trashy and completely entertaining genre mix is well worth switching off for ninety minutes.
When a female psychiatrist is run off the road in the Texan desert, James Belushi and his subservient wife pick her up. What follows will drop most jaws as this sci-fi / revenge thriller hybrid begins to unfold involving time travel, multiple shootings, and a few opportunities for impressive - and certainly enthusiastic - pyrotechnics.
Belushi, probably miscast, yet entertainingly sleazy as his angry Elvis-wannabe type shouts and swears at his female counterparts. With Frank Whaley and the always welcome M Emmet Walsh providing bit parts, this only goes to further bolstering the films cult appeal.
As ever with these outings, chance and coincidence play a large part in keeping the narrative moving along, with many plot holes to be found if you were that way inclined. But suspend disbelief and you’ll find one of the more enjoyable 90s US action thrillers - it’s certainly one of the most far fetched, and all the better for it.
