This violent cop movie was released just over 18 months after Clint Eastwood's violent cop movie, Dirty Harry (1971). The tagline on this picture's main American movie poster and DVD reads: "This cop plays dirty!". Roger Ebert said that this film was " . . . probably the best violent big-city police movie since 'Dirty Harry'" and "Digital Retribution" said that this movie " . . . is very much a post-'Dirty Harry' genre flick and Bronson's [Detective] Torrey reflects that in spades."

At the start of the motorcycle chase, Langley emerges from the alley and has to go around a parked red Ford Pinto. A moment later, Torrey's Plymouth emerges from the same alley in close pursuit and the Pinto is gone. See more »
If you're not already a Charles Bronson fan, this film isn't likely to change your mind. But for those of you like their action films with side-burns, bell bottoms and good old fashioned,hard-hitting action, you'll really enjoy this. Bronson does his "Dirty Harry" impression while investigating a strange ring of murders involving ex-vietnam vets and the Mob. Great car chases. The crazy car crack up inside a parking lot is this film's action highlight. One of my favorite Bronson flicks.
