watchable Delon thriller
28 July 1999 | by (Stuttgart, Germany) – See all my reviews

Ex-cop is after a drug pusher gang. Completely average thriller starring and directed by Alain Delon. If you don't feel like losing or winning anything, watch this film. A short cameo by beautiful French actress Brigitte Lahaie might get many a heart pumping. Apart from that, the movie isn't too exciting. At least it's not really boring.
