Absolutely terrific

This movie made for the small screen represents the quintessence of what I love the most in the film noir. Even if it's not the authentic definition that other movie buffs may give to it. I don't care. This feature was aired on a french channel during the late seventies, but I missed it. I only knew the novel written by Richard Johnson, an ex con like Eddy Bunker. Novels speaking of brutality, violence and total despair for every one, and where only the most ruthless guys survive. So this movie is fairly faithful to the original. A fierce story for a hopeless atmosphere where you don't have to expect any happy endings. What can I say to describe the Telly Savalas or Joe Don Baker's performances? I can't find words strong enough to tell you. Outstanding, fabulous, awesome... I will never forget one of the last scene, where (SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS) the Joe Don Baker's character

  • Mongo - dies standing still under the rain. Read the other comment
too, it's better than mine.

Pure hopeless seventies style, the kind of movies I have always loved and always will.
