Not exactly a blast but entirely passable.

The Great Texas Dynamite Chase could've used a more appropriate title being that it's not your typical Roger Corman-produced car-chase picture. There are only two chases in the entire thing, in fact, and they're relatively short, which involve two bank-robbing females, Candy Morgan, a recent escapee from a Texas prison, and Ellie Jo Turner, recently fired from her bank-teller job due to habitual tardiness, being pursued by police. Candy has the novel idea of entering a bank with two sticks of TNT, one with a long fuse lit and the other with an unlit shorter fuse she threatens to ignite if her demands aren't met; her first bank just happens to be the one Ellie Jo has been terminated from just two minutes prior. Thereafter they team up and hit scores of small-town banks and use their incredible beauty and luscious bodies to seduce their way out of thorny predicaments in between. Claudia Jennings, as Candy, and Jocely Jones, as Ellie Jo, are attractive and appealing performers and manage to make the proceedings pleasantly ramshackle on an undemanding level. Oh, some will argue there's too much downtime in between the robberies; and why on earth they choose not to wear disguises in public places what with their photos plastered all over the newspapers and television (they've been labeled the "Dynamite Women") is admittedly fair game. Still, despite some late-in-the-game gory violence that temporarily throws the otherwise-genteel tone off you're likely to have a decent-enough time, especially with the nudity and sex served up in bountiful supply. The Great Texas Dynamite Chase is no great shakes, but it's handsomely photographed and boasts dialogue that surprisingly doesn't suck as far as these things go. And absolutely clinching the deal are these two vivacious B-movie actresses who effortlessly warrant our undivided attention throughout.

Perfect for a rainy weekend afternoon.
