A Lost 80s gem...

It has a lot of cool trashy action and adventure which you can slurp up with a spoon. Overall well made B-movie that definitely captures a specific moment in time.

A great cast of one-off characters and sadly the only starring role of Monica Carrico,who is sexy as all get-out and very enjoyable to watch. Shes a quirky vixen who likes to dance...I almost think she had to have been a stripper or a gymnast in real life to have that figure.

It is kind of exploitation cinema, what with its allure to the seedy side of life; but there is an honesty and realism there, in people looking for redemption, but getting caught up in the moment.

and if nothing else, we can come away with the fact that...Burgers can kill
