Pure Danger ★★½ 1996 (R)
Short order cook Johnny (Howell) and his waitress girlfriend Becky (Linn) stumble upon a bag of diamonds and think all their troubles are over. Wrong—they're just beginning, since some very nasty men want the jewels and don't care who they kill to get them. Howell keeps his directorial debut fastpaced and surprisingly entertaining. 99m/C VHS, DVD . C. Thomas Howell, Teri Ann Linn, Leon, Michael Russo; D: C. Thomas Howell; W: William Applegate Jr., Joseph John Barmettler Jr.; C: Ken Blakey; M: K. Alexander (Alex) Wilkinson.
