Critics reviews

The film understands that the truly wild movies are casual about their wildness, accepting a state of anything goes as status quo. Lewis and screenwriter Philip Yordan matter-of-factly reveal a traditional tale of a cop’s pursuit of a kingpin as having virtually nothing to do with honoring law and order and everything to do with private vendettas that tumble into reality out of the realms of our submerged desires.
