    I love this movie, it had a real feeling of nothing to lose for the lead character. Of course there were parts that weren’t the best, but there are parts that are absolutely gratifyingly in your face.

    The story's thin but Johnson is really good in this mixed bag action thriller.

    An under rated gem from Frankenheimer. Johnson is unbelievable in this and is in nearly every single scene. Forsythe is reliable as always and a text book twitch off Miller. My only critique would be Johnson's alcoholic cop who doesn't actually drink much throughout.

    I don't really understand the bad reputation this film has. It's a serviceable cop film. It's not an outstanding piece of work, and Frankenheimer has certainly done better (and worse) than this, but Johnson is really quite good as your standard maverick cop character and the plot is engaging. Any cop film where your hungover lead cop throws up on a suspect is at least worth a look ... it's more interesting than any of the "Lethal Weapon" sequels.

    Good 80's cop thriller with Don Johnson playing a cop, but less like Sonny Crocket and more like Dirty Harry, it's quite cool seeing Don playing it differently and he's convincing at it too, doesn't seem to be trying too hard. It's a shame that his movie career didn't go as far as his TV career did (Tom Selleck seemed to had that problem too, he's currently a regular on a TV show on Sky Atlantic).

    I'd file this movie under...good enough. Not overly great but not terrible, it just exists and it's not bad at all.

    Don't expect Don Johnson to be anything like Sonny Crockett and you'll be pleased.
