Storyline

Coogan, an Arizona cop, is sent to New York to collect a prisoner. Everyone in New York assumes Coogan is from Texas, much to his annoyance. To add to Coogan's problems the prisoner isn't ready, so he decides to cut a few corners. In the process the prisoner escapes, and Coogan is ordered home. Too proud to return home empty handed, Coogan sets out into the big city to recapture his prisoner. Written by Rob Hartill

Perfect Action Movie
2 January 2005 | by (Western PA) – See all my reviews

From the opening scenes to the end it's never boring, and often hilarious. Lee J. Cobb turns in a wonderfully wry performance, the young Susan Clark is hot as Julie the probation officer, and Tom Tully is perfect as the tough, no-nonsense Sheriff McCrea. Add to that the sights and sounds of the city in the late 1960's and the feel for the atmosphere of the times, and it's a wonderful way to spend an afternoon. I define the quality of a movie by how it makes me feel. And this one always makes me feel good. Watching Eastwood work as Deputy Sheriff Walt Coogan, with that cool Eastwood demeanor makes you realize just how hokey Dennis Weaver played the McCloud character in the TV series - while 'Coogan' inspired the series, the series certainly didn't outshine it. This one is a fun romp, and like all in the genre, not to be taken too seriously. Highly recommended.
