Reviews in German: «Ein vom wahren Täter geschickt in Verdacht gebrachter Buchhalter einer amerikanischen Bank, die auf raffinierte Weise um eine riesige Summe beraubt wurde, verfolgt den Gangster und wird selbst wiederum von einem Kriminalkommissar verfolgt. Die drei Männer hetzen hintereinander her, bis es in einem Hehlernest zu Totschlag und Verhaftung kommt. Mischung aus Abenteuer- und Gangsterfilm mit spannenden Autoverfolgungsjagden durch Mexiko. Durch Humor so weit aufgelockert, dass der Film fast eine parodistische Note erhält.» (filmdienst)
