The screenplay is so predictable in situation and so arch in its supposedly tough, blunt, wise talk that it turns into a joke told by someone with no sense of humor.

Eastwood moves from country to city ... with predictably entertaining results.

A satisfying police yarn with some really great, physically hefty location photography.

The film is like a cousin to the Western genre, with Coogan keeping his trap shut and his emotions to himself, but Siegel, with his expert craftsmanship, brisk pacing and exciting action, gives us plenty of other stuff to concentrate on.

A subtrama romântica é dispensável e J. Cobb é desperdiçado pelo filme. Ainda assim, Eastwood transforma o lacônico Coogan em um personagem interessante nesta sua primeira parceria com Siegel.
| Original Score: 3/5

New York cop thriller with a touch of the Westerna and a touch of the Eastwood...and all the better for it.

Eastwood's performance as the flawed, headstrong superman has been terribly underrated, but he brings to the part of Coogan a sure knowledge of the man's obvious strengths and not so obvious failings.

This urban Western, the first collaboration with Don Siegel, is a significant transitional film in Eastwood's career and screen image, situated between his 1960s Spaghetti Westerns and the Dirty Harry film series of the 1970s.

It lacks the punch of Dirty Harry but still makes for reasonably exciting viewing.

Even Siegel's somehow off-centre treatment of New York hippiedom is intriguingly wry.

Story is of the clash between sophisticated law enforcement and frontier-style simplistics, which is perhaps one of the major internal American problems.
