A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
Kansas City in the 1930s: private investigator Mike Murphy's partner is brutally murdered when he tries to blackmail a mobster with his secret accounting records. When a rival gang boss goes after the missing records, ex-policeman Murphy is forced to team up again with his ex-partner Lieutenant Speer, even though they can't stand each other, to fight both gangs before KC erupts in a mob war.

Burt Reynolds suffered a serious accident and had his jaw broken when he was hit in the face with a metal chair while filming a fight scene on this movie. Reynolds was restricted to a liquid diet and lost over thirty pounds by the time the film wrapped. This accident had dire consequences for Reynolds' next film project, Stick (1985). In that film, Reynolds looks underweight, weak and thin and this condition was because of this accident. Apparently, this accident led to Reynolds becoming addicted to painkillers. See more »
In the gunfight scene in the street, when Lt. Speer is walking down the street with the pump-action shotgun, the audio is of the action being operated in one fluid motion, while the video shows the action being pulled open, Speer pauses momentarily, and then closes the action, with no sound.

I didn't hear you knock, Lieutenant.
What a relief. I thought I must be going deaf.

I didn't find this movie all that bad. It is merely mediocre. Unfortunately there is nothing in this movie that we haven't seen dozens of times before. Burt is sophomoric and Clint is stereotypical Clint. Good TV movie but not really worth renting unless you have seen everything else.
