Clint Eastwood is a down-and-out cop who is sent on a routine mission to pick up a witness and deliver her to the Phoenix courthouse. Sounds easy until he realizes he’s been set up by the man who gave him this simple assignment. The interplay between Eastwood and the witness, a clever prostitute played by the actor’s former girlfriend, Sondra Locke, is tough and playful. They obviously had strong chemistry. The story is highly… More >>

  1. This movie stunk, stinks, and is just plain BAD. It truley is not worth the time it takes to write this review, but hopefully I can save some others from a bad plot, bad acting (Sandra Locke really stinks the place up), and situations that would not happen (a crazed woman with a gun in the middle of a couple of hundred police officers and non of them are 1. running for cover or tring to dodge a bullet and 2. trying to stop her or take the gun away). DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR YOUR MONEY WITH THIS MOVIE IN ANY WAY.

  2. EASTWOOD BOMB

    Its hard to imagine Clint Eastwood creating a bad movie, but hey…this was his directing debut. Give the man a break — punk. The movie has Eastwood as a down and out cop who is easy prey for all the bad cops looking to take him down. Sondra Locke turns in a sucky job as a prostitute seeking witless protection under Eastwood’s care. The only good thing about the movie is seeing Class-A Eastwoodian actor Pat Hingle as the only friend this cop has. Warning: This movie is only for die hard Eastwoodians.

  4. I will admit, this movie is not lacking in action in any way. However, it’s incredibly unrealistic and has a poor story line. For an Eastwood movie, this one just isn’t holding its own.

  5. There are a lot of good Clint Eastwood movies out there, but this is not one of them. Instead, this is one of the weakest of his seventies crime drama movies, an ineptly written and generally boring movie.

    Eastwood plays Shockley, a Phoenix cop assigned to extradite a prostitute from Las Vegas. As a bit of silliness right off the bat, it turns out that there is even a wager at the sports books that he will not make it back to Phoenix alive. From that point on, the dumbness continues, with Shockley blindly going from one trap to another, hardly piecing anything together without being led by the hand. On the other hand, all the other cops are equally dumb, willing to shoot first and ask questions later.

    There are lots of bullets flying in this movie, but interestingly, Eastwood does not fire a single one at a person. Instead, he shoots doorknobs and motorcycles. Actually, Eastwood doesn’t get more than a few punches in; those expecting Eastwood kicking butt will be sorely disappointed.

    This movie is strictly for Eastwood fans only; all others should go elsewhere for a good crime movie.
