train wreck noir
18 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Coming off their career high hit "The Longest Yard" Reynolds and Aldrich tried a highly stylized LA thriller. That was all She wrote for Roburt" productions.

Even at a very young age I took a look at the reviews this film got and was

surprised how easy the critics went on it. Mostly it was ignored and allowed to die.

Aldrich has done good work ("Flight of The Phenix" is among my favorite movies)

but he is so out of his element trying to be stylish here. His efforts come off as

a tasteless slob trying to be classy.

Steve Shagen was slightly hot at the time, with his turgid "Save The Tiger" being

taken seriously in some quarters. But Aldrich should have known this script needed

some serious work or better yet, should have been thrown out all together.

The Dirty Harry/Death Wish element ( A double murderer somehow is let out

out of jail for good behavior, you know, just like real life) is perhaps the worst

bit of audience pandering. Then there is a consenting adults rape that

probably wouldn't go over today.

Visually ugly, terribly edited ( a sign of desperation and bad audience

testing, the film still has a train wreck sort of quality, we all become

bad cinema lookie lous. A great partnership of Burt and Bob was not

to be. Also, when something this cynical is this unconvincing, the result

is oddly upbeat.
