Chuck O'Leary

John Frankenheimer was unhappy with the way the studio cut this one, but it remains a competent, watchable action-thriller. Most memorable for a scene where Don Johnson's hungover cop pukes on a suspect.

Scott Weinberg

Entirely standard cop fare. And Don Johson is the cop.

Frank Ochieng

An excitable but mawkish misfire by action-oriented filmmaker Frankenheimer. A vehicle designed to capitalize on Johnson's roguish appeal simply results in a dead bang.

Clint Morris

the lowest point in John Frankenheimer's career

I saw this a long time ago, and barely remember it. All I can remember is thinking how dull and boring it was at the time.
Anthony Valletta
Underrated Frankenheimer flick.
