Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Plenty of tension, as we wonder if the bounty hunter will capture Dyer or not. Some amusing dialogue, as when a character asks why helium (a tank of it) is so heavy.

Con: The cardboard corporate villain is a little hard to believe.

This story comes uncomfortably close to glorifying drug culture.
