HASH(0x91e1f600) out of 5 stars far better than expected 19 Jun. 2012
By Mark bennett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This is an American remake of the French film "Wages of Fear". The premise didn't sound that good given that remakes tend usually to be worse than the original. But this was unexpectedly good and a good representative of a certain type of 1950s movie.

The film is about a bunch of truck drivers running a dangerous cargo in exchange for a lot of money. They run the trucks through an empty desert landscape and run into about every problem there is with a truck.

Brian Keith turns in one of the best performances of his career in the film. He is the boss of the drivers. Each one is different problem and Keith keeps them in line and driving onward. The character development is actually better than Wages of Fear. Even if the action is often not as good as Wages of Fear.

HASH(0x91c73348) out of 5 stars Excellent cast and story line that went unnoticed 12 Aug. 2014
By Whitestar - Published on Amazon.com

Brian Keith really delivers in this relatively unknown film. Excellent cast and story line that went unnoticed. This film really holds up and delivers a great level of excitement and was to me, one of Brian keith's best films. A must for his fans.

HASH(0x9990cfcc) out of 5 stars 3rd place 11 Nov. 2013
By Lawrence R. Wright - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I had to get this after "Sorcerer" and "The Wages of Fear" so I'd have all three films based on the same book. In that company, this rates no better than a Bronze medal, but that's no excuse no to see it. Interesting twist on the story and not quite so "dark". Mr. Keith makes the film, in my opinion.

HASH(0x92522e70) out of 5 stars Surprisingly suspenseful movie 7 Sept. 2014
By R. Holmes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I remembered seeing this movie when I was a kid, but when I looked for it as an adult, could not find it on Netflix. After buying it and watching it, I wonder what other "gems" are out there that I've missed.

This movie is a good story in and of itself, but it is also a glimpse into the culture of the 50's. It takes place on the backroads of California,
has plenty of drama, excitement and action, and enough "human interest" to make you care about the characters. Plus, you get to see actors early in
their careers. I suppose it's a "guy" movie, but more than that it's a movie about people getting stuff done in a much simpler world.

HASH(0x99962b10) out of 5 stars Good thriller. 12 Oct. 2014
By D. Blackdeer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Modest thriller similar to the earlier feature "Wages of Fear" in which six men transport volatile components of rocket fuel over a dangerous route. Running out of time to meet the deadline of a lucrative government contract, the Cyclone Rocket Company hires Mitch Barton, portrayed by Brian Keith, to organize a team that will haul the dangerous cargo over a mountain road to avoid populated areas. The film is good, it contains the same components of "Wages of Fear" and "Sorcerer", but it doesn't have the depth due to its low budget.
