CULT – 1

VERDICT – 4/5

 
PROS –
1) A definitive cult movie by Walter Hill.  The godfather of all modern car-racing games and numerous Hollywood heist movies like Driver (2011), Baby Driver (2017), etc.
2) All the characters are nameless. That’s how brave the director is.
3) High octane car chase scenes
4) Every major and minor character seems the central character of the movie including the Exchange Man.

 
CONS –
1) A kickass soundtrack is missing. What a shame!
