This is vintage Holden, a tour de force!
12 July 2002 | by (St.Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

The film has a gritty realism. Holden gives, I think one of his best performances. Lee Remick is wonderful as the love intrest. You'll be surprised to see a very young Sam Elliot in the role of the rookie cop.
