The Gauntlet Reviews
I will say Eastwood is fantastic here. He takes bullets like it's nothing, he smacks around women and he has a great quick wit throughout the film.
Sondra Locke is also quite great. I've never seen her before, and I expect to see her a lot as I start finding more Eastwood films to watch. I guess they were lovers for awhile and made a many of films together. She's sassy, sexy and not afraid to stop a fight but ripping her shirt off!!!
Of all things it's the action scenes that kill this film. They are really drawn out and completely unbelievable. A helicopter is chasing you with a sniper taking shots, so you drive ten minutes in the desert???
And the whole ending was such garbage. I wish they had made the action scenes actually move and be somewhat based in reality and this could have been a classic!
