Very old fashioned crime drama with 70's vigilante twist
3 March 2000 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

This film plays very much like a old B & W serial type crime drama from the 50's, and even the dialogue is VERY old fashioned, as I had trouble believing these people talk like this in the late 70's. It also has like two different plots going on at the same time, involving like 3 different baddies, and many colourful characters all somehow involved in one story or another. In the end, it all revolves around Jack Palance's character. Lots of great character actors, great music score, poor photography, and isnt really a "R" rating movie, as it can play on TV as a crime show pilot! But still it is one of the better Palance films from the 70's. It could have used a good 10 minutes editing to make it more tighter though.
