Clarence Williams III is the best thing about it; the scene when he (*spoiler*) kills Leo especially comes to mind (also when he interrogates Vanity). The rest of the film is riddled with twists a bit too predictable and dated for the genre (especially as I've watched a load of superior Scheider films from this era: *Last Embrace*, *The Seven-Ups*, *Klute*, even *Still of the Night*).
Solid 80s crime thriller is a decent Elmore Leonard adaptation (Leonard co-wrote the screenplay). Strong performances by a capable cast and John Frankenheimer's sure-handed direction get it through a few cheesy and dated elements (including an irritating synth score by Gary Chang). Nothing extraordinary, but a satisfying genre effort.
