I was in the mood for a good action film. I'd found this in the discount bin a few weeks ago, and remembered it being a cool one. Kurt Russell is one of my all time favorite action heroes thanks mostly to John Carpenter flicks like Escape from New York and The Thing.

It's a simple set-up, Russell and wife Breakdown in the middle of the desert. A kindly trucker offers to drive her to the nearest stop to make a phone call. When Russell shows up there, she never showed up and now he's got to find her. What follows is some top-not car chases, stunts involving hanging off trucks and some good tension is built at the end. Awesome character actor J.T. Walsh is perfect as main bad guy. The ending is highly satisfying.
