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 »

User Reviews

Excellent, chilling movie
21 January 2004 | by (Kent, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I first saw this TV movies years ago, and was as intrigued as everybody else by the casting of David Soul and Michael Gross.

Although I haven't seen it for some years, and didn't know the name, I felt compelled to hunt it down on IMDB to make a comment. As well as being outstanding in the action sequences, particularly the ultimate shootout, it was particularly notable for portraying the wrongdoers as unsentimental killers. These murders live with one years after having seen the movie. The makers achieve this not by lingering over the badness of the villains, but by showing them dispatching their victims lightly, unhesitatingly.

Good, skillful movie.
