“…this film doesn’t break new ground for its story, but the execution is solid and it pulls it off thanks to the charisma of Rossi, who remains tough and capable while displaying vulnerability and even kindness amid relentless attempts to his life and the man he was hired to bring back B&S on the movies
“The two protagonists had a good charisma. I know it’s a generic plot ala midnight race but it is well executed. Both Theo Rossi and the Bail-Jumping Kid performed well above average for a low-budget film, and Kim Coates is consistently good. For a film with obvious budgetary constraints, it is shot and edited well. 7 out of 10, Ibz 1979
“While he suffers from the films that inspired him, The return is an acceptable film. The characters needed a bit more work, and the third-rate blues on the soundtrack is a poor substitute for the energetic Busboys tracks in 48 hours. But for a low-budget action movie, it delivers more than expected and that’s enough to satisfy most viewers. 3 out of 5, Voice from the balcony
