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.
Though at times this movie seems too dark to be a comedy, and not dark enough to be as suspenseful as it perhaps intends, it is nonetheless never short of entertaining. One can't help but be charmed by the charismatic Eastwood and the sultry sexy Locke. And the action scenes look great. I was especially impressed by the helicopter chase, but perhaps let down by the over-the-top absurdity of the movie's finale.
