Our take

Ryan O’Neal and Bruce Dern play fierce enemies in this crime thriller by Walter Hill (The Warriors ), also starring Isabelle Adjani. A critical and box-office flop on its release, the film has now gathered cult status and went on to influence modern classics such as Pulp Fiction and Drive!
