Surely one of that rare breed of perfect films. Of course the title is erroneous as the movie is set in Precinct 9, Division 13 and there are many continuity slip ups, but I mean perfect, not in a technical sense but like all great exploitation, in the sense that the story telling has overcome any budgetary shortcomings. This movie rushes from start to finish, not unlike, Romero's earlier, 'Night of the Living Dead'. The compelling tale with its relentless violence is told excitingly with an excellent and believable cast. Darwin Joston is outstanding as the good baddie and Laurie Zimmer is also excellent and as for the simmering sexuality between them, wow! At first we see her as some gentile police station secretary as she goes about making the coffee and she ends up as hard nosed as any femme fatale. With all the crash bang wallop of the horrendous goings on Carpenter still allows time for little things such as when Joston praises Zimmer for her shooting and says, 'You're good.' She looks up at him with her shining eyes and says, 'Not always.'
