Goofs

In the car chase sequence, when Buddy Manucci is driving through the street packed with children playing, an interior shot of his car shows a small portion of stunt driver Bill Hickman's face (his glasses are clearly seen in particular). Hickman did much of the driving for the interior shots of this car, besides his acting role as one of the two 'bad guys' and stunt driving in the car being pursued by Manucci. See more »

Very underrated + Moon!!!
22 August 2004 | by (misery, st.loo) – See all my reviews

What an underrated flick. Great action.Great tension.The only thing (you could ask for) would have been Friedkin directing it. I know, I know. Same year as Exorcist. Still... One comment which was made referred to the plot being confusing which I slightly agree with. Friedkin might have cracked the whip on that part. I always thought you could do a lot of different things in a car wash. And Moon!!! Thank God for Richard Lynch. What an actor.And the driver. He should have acted more. Great menace.With those little glasses. Also underrated is Roy. He never got his due. He should have won for All That Jazz. FC II is great, but this is too overlooked. p.s. AVOID THE NEW EXORCIST. Wait for Schraeder DVD.
