  1. Wee Hunk's rating of the film 52 Pick-Up

    Can we admit that the 80's sucked? I realize that you may have some nostalgia for the period, but objectively there was a lot of crap going on during the 'Me' decade. Elmore Leonard is a great writer, but the best adaptations have been in the past decade or so. The movie is sleazy, but on the other hand you do get to see Kelly Preston nude.

    Enfin à nouveau un bon "Frankenheimer" ! www.cinefiches.com

  3. film_lies101's rating of the film 52 Pick-Up

    All the acting is great, only Ann-Margret gets the short stick. John Glover is great as the ultimate unconventional baddie. I was riveted the entire time

  4. Terry_Moby's rating of the film 52 Pick-Up

    The different settings (upper class life style vs. sleazy porn video underworld) are depicted nicely. Best represented by Ann-Margret and Vanity respectively. The bad guys are interesting, too. Wishy washi score, though.

  5. José Neves's rating of the film 52 Pick-Up

    Menahem Golan's production, how could Frankenheimer survive?

  7. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film 52 Pick-Up

    A precursor to Fatal Attraction, where the indiscretions of the protagonist throw his life (and his marriage) into chaos. Here, the moral punishment takes the form of a blackmail plot; his penance more a Death Wish-like cry of vengeance propelling him down a road to murder and degradation. It's powerful, often squalid stuff, but elevated by Frankenheimer's muscular direction and the fierce determination of Scheider.

  9. Matt's rating of the film 52 Pick-Up

    Everyone here is underrating this movie; it's one of the most intense movies I've seen recently and there is never a dull moment! This is a masterpiece!

  10. Stephen Campbell's rating of the film 52 Pick-Up

    Pretty Goood Elmore Leonard fiilm and one of the most underated films of the period only the score lets it down.

  11. Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film 52 Pick-Up

    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.
