Not a bad 70's B-actioner

"Flash and the Firecat" is an OK flick about a pair of dune buggy enthusiasts, who are also a couple, who cleverly rob a bank by faking a kidnapping with the bank manager's son (who had no idea what was going on). Getting their cash, they then make their getaway across the desert in their buggys.

Lots of familiar 70's faces abound here. Flash is a hot girl, and Firecat ("Cat" for short) is her boyfriend, who promises to take her to Wyoming with the loot to fulfill her dreams. Evidently to some, Wyoming is the place where dreams come true! Richard Keil enters the picture and things get a bit better, as Keil is a no-nonsense official who is hellbent on getting that cash back.

There's not really that much action, there's one chase after the robbery and another towards the end with the dune buggy and a helicopter with Keil in it, and that becomes kind of boring because it mainly consists of the copter trying to keep up with the swerving dune buggy in the desert. And I won't give anything away, but I will say I had no idea drag races were held on sand! The film also features the old Billy Preston hit "Nothing' From Nothing'" which is a decent song, if not seemingly out of place. I also don't believe "Firecat" was ever referred to as "THE Firecat", so why the "the" is in there is a mystery. "Flash and the Firecat" could be a lot better but also worse, you may want to see if you remember any of it if you watched it on 70's cable TV.
