Lloyd Hopkins, a hard-boiled American police detective is on the trail of a mass murderer who is victimizing women in Los Angeles. The pursuit leads him through a world that has become his own natural habitat - a nasty world of crime, drugs, prostitution and male hustlers where "innocence kills" and continued exposure corrupts. Paradoxically, it's also a world of love, secret admirers, romantic feminist poets and modern chivalry. And for the viewer, it's the background for an exciting, suspense movie. Written by

Lesley Ann Warren chain-smokes throughout the movie but she is clearly a non-smoker. She never handles the cigarette like a smoker would, constantly taking puffs that she doesn't inhale, picking up the cigarette and putting it down all the time when a real smoker would hold it. It's just obvious she's not comfortable with the cigarette. See more »

Extremely entertaining film about a cop (Woods) who tries to hunt down a criminal who is murdering women downtown in an apparently random order. I saw this on AMC one Friday night, very late, and I was blown away. Great acting, particularly by James Woods, and just a very fine film with a good fade-to-black ending.
It's sort of dumb and predictable sometimes, but it's one of the best endings I can remember in recent years.
