Clint Eastwood action-thriller is consistently entertaining, despite some major flaws. With a plot that stretches credibility at every turn, it's hard to take it as anything but comedy, even though most of the time it seems to be playing it straight. Eastwood is his inimitable self, and Sondra Locke is appropriately feisty as his quarry. Lots of firepower and solid, though very improbable, action scenes.
