Goofs

While briefing the other agents in the parking lot, Agent Ben Grogan tells them to be on the look out for a black '79 Monte Carlo. The car the bad guys are in is actually a 1974 Monte Carlo. The FBI would not make this kind of mistake since they questioned the owner of the car earlier and know exactly what year and make it was. See more »

An Excellent TV Movie....
12 November 1999 | by (Maplewood NJ) – See all my reviews

The first in a series of made for television movies, this is perhaps THE BEST. David Soul and Michael Gross play two "respectable" Floridians who set about murdering others and robbing banks. Their exploits come to the attention of the FBI who pursue them in true J Edgar Hoover type fashion. The climatic gun battle is not to be missed. Though toned down considerably for TV, it would rival the shoot out in the movie HEAT. Strongly recommended.
