According to 'Allmovie', the film "was slated as a project for [Japanese director] Akira Kurosawa in 1970, but for various creative and scheduling reasons, it remained on the back burner for 15 years". In the interim though, the Japanese film industry did make Shinkansen daibakuha (1975). See more »

This movie is just brilliant. The Oscar Mannheimer character has to be one of the hardest moviecharacters of alltime. I love the way Voight turns mental on numerous occasions, he's doing one hell of a job. Arguably his best ever role. Eric Roberts is almost as brilliant in portraying Buck. I find myself laughing at so many times during the course of this movie. It's not only funny though, it's also a movie of high suspense and some action. 10 out of 10. I say YEAH!
