Coogan's Bluff Reviews

June 22, 2020
For all intents and purposes, what we think of as comedic action cinema was born the day Coogan's Bluff was released.

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

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

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 wry humored cop thriller.

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.

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

A subtrama romntica dispensvel e J. Cobb desperdiado pelo filme. Ainda assim, Eastwood transforma o lacnico Coogan em um personagem interessante nesta sua primeira parceria com Siegel.

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.

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

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.

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