February 8, 2015
This is one of the few films taken from an Elmore Leonard novel that should please the author's readers.

...may very well suffer from mismatched sensibilities.

...a thriller that's woefully lacking in thrills...

Roy Scheider is at his hard-boiled best and John Glover is a loathsomely slimy villain in this tough thriller that was quite graphic for its time. Sometimes unpleasant, but always interesting.

Overbaked, underfed Elmore Leonard adaptation.

John Frankenheimer has directed "52 Pick-Up" in a style so devoid of nuance, the movie almost watches itself.

A movie is only as good as its villain. John Frankenheimer's 52 Pick-Up provides us with the best, most reprehensible villain of the year and uses his vile charm as the starting point for a surprisingly good film.
