Engrossing and diverting enough on a moment-to-moment basis but is overtooled.

Friedkin plays it as brutal and cynical as he ever did with The French Connection...

On its own terms, it's a considerable success, though it's a film that sacrifices everything in the interests of style.
| Original Score: 3/5

The film isn't just about cops and robbers, but about two systems of doing business, and how one of the systems finds a way to change itself in order to defeat the other.
