Fun, entertaining 70's action crime thriller with Burt Reynolds.
Good entertaining 70s action detective thriller starring Burt Reynolds
Burt Reynolds makes this fairly ok movie better.
Why has this film faded into semi obscurity? It's great.
First of all, Burt Reynolds is one of the best action heroes ever. Forget your physical specimens of the 80s to present, Burty has the build of a normal dude, he gets tired, hung over, physically overtaken, but he's clever as hell. It's seeing him struggle through action sequences that makes them so exciting in this flick. Not to mention he's his smarmy self, and bit of a womanizer at that, but I mean, it was the 70s. Think of him as a bubbling Shaft, but less so than Elliott Gould's Marlowe in the Long Goodbye.
Added to all this you have an intriguing story, and some strange, yet amusing characters and situations. Not to forget a great and appropriate score from Jerry Goldsmith.
Almost needless to say: this one stands out.
Entertaining 1970s action thriller starring Burt Reynolds as Shamus McCoy and the lovely Dyan Cannon as the girl. Burt is a detective investigating a strange diamonds heist. He is in top form while on the case, getting into brawls and charming the ladies. The stunts and spectacles are big-budget and top-notch. Fans of action will certainly be taken away by Burt's performance as an early 1970s smooth toughie and can only ponder what would have happen had he been the lead in 'Diamonds are Forever' in 1971 or 'Live and Let Die' in 1973... Nonetheless, a great piece of 1970s action cinema, not high-brow stuff, but certainly a good time.
Burt as P.I. hired to uncover diamond theft who eventually must take matters into his own hands. Morris the Cat makes seamless transition from commercials to big screen, always complementing but never stealing scenes from Reynolds.
good action movie with the Burt
Burt is New York private eye Shamus McCoy who's hired to investigate some stolen diamonds but it turns out more than what he initially anticipated. Not one of Reynolds' better films but solid enough time killer
Burt's cool, the flick's pretty cool, got a blacxpolation vibe going on, maybe its Burtspolation, i enjoyed it.
pretty decent detective flick
