    There are two movies in one here: one is a nonsensical spy/chase thriller about an ex-government agent (Kirk Douglas, the Matthew McConaughey of his era) searching for his kidnapped son (Andrew Stevens), and the other concerns a young woman (Amy Irving) who is horrified to learn that she might possess some undefined psychic ability. It's a popcorn muncher of a work, light entertainment at best, or it's a long Kirk Douglas selfie delivered especially to you. Brian DePalma directs and keeps things moving, but don't think too hard.

    Viewed this film as preteen and it is good as a psychic horror with overtones of intrigue and humor. This movie is also a great travelogue of sorts for 1970s Chicago...a lot of the locations filmed have changed or now gone and thanks to Brian dePalma for capturing them. A good film overall.

    More than 40 years after first seeing this Brian DePalma sci-fi, horror, drama I returned to it to see how he holds up. Douglas overacts, Cassavetes underperforms as the villain and the movie feels like a museum piece. For DePalma lovers the film is a must for others wait for a re-make.

    Besides a few classic De Palma shots the film drags on.

    An odd and interesting film, could probably be skipped if you're getting into De Palma.

    Underrated gem that opens like a life insurance commercial and ends like Hiroshima.
