Trivia

Sidney J. Furie was the director originally hired for this film. Furie quit when it was alleged that Brolin broke his foot, and the producers suggested Brolin perform the role in a cast. The doctor's reports, however, were erroneous. Many of Furie's previous collaborators, including Rick Natkin, Argyle Nelson and Jay Weston, continued working on the finished product. See more »

Great action film--If you can find it!
25 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent action/adventure flick that somewhat unfairly depicted NY City. But, it was the late 70's, the city was broke, and in reality, in near chaos at the fringes (like the south Bronx as shown in the movie--that was REAL). Exciting, on-the-edge-of-your-seat action takes over, along with first glimpses of some actors who would be staples on TV (Dan Hedaya & Cliff Gorman). My favorite in the movie was Richie Castellano as Tonelli. He turned out to be the comic relief in the film, and I think it was among the last things he did before he passed. James Brolin did little if no feature film work before this, but it is arguably his best. It far surpassed anything he did for TV. Look for this movie as a used VHS tape wherever you can. You won't be disappointed.
