I must have seen this way back when dinosaurs roamed the earth but it's only recently that I managed to get hold of the DVD.
A first class, well constructed story with some interesting sub plots and taut dialogue. There are one or two things that are really not believable - such as how do the judges finance their project - but without this it's difficult to see how it could be logically coherent.
The conclusion is perhaps the least satisfying part: a little too much of the wham bang thank you ma'am and it rather tails off in the final shot as if there were better ideas in the scriptwriter's head but no time to put them together.
Like many of the "older" movies, this one is a cracker without an over-reliance on explosions and crashing cars.
