John Nichols was the actual chief of the Detroit Police at the time of his appearance in the movie. No doubt he hoped his appearance in the film would help his 1973 campaign for mayor. He lost to Coleman Young, however, and later went on to become sheriff of suburban Oakland County. See more »

A remarkable thriller, full of action and groovy music!
I saw this movie because of Quentin Tarantino's initiative to bring back classics like this to the video stores. This movie is just terrific. First of all the story is very well done and it is still original today. This is remarkable considering that this movie is 26 years old! The actors might be a little weak at times but the cool dialogs and the raw action scenes are the best ones I've ever seen. There aint no special effects here but it still is pretty spectacular. Of course, this movie is not an Hollywood super production but it still is an excellent movie that one should see at least once. The music is also fantastic, seeing those guys shoot each others and thoses cars explode with some 70's era funk music is just too entertaining.
I recommend this movie to any action or thriller movie fans. Tarantino fans might also be surprised..this movie obviously influenced Tarantino a lot. See for yourself.
