Desperate hours
19 October 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

What a good surprise here this well made home invasion scheme, that we have already seen before, OK, but efficiently enough to glue you to your seat. That's not Bill Wyler's DESPERATE HOURS either but worth watching. We also have the young Beau Bridges in one of his earliest roles. I appreciated the shoout out between the cops and the robbers, just after the punks get out the robbed store, with the garbage can in between; the bullets make the garbage can cap twist !!!
