Raynor is an undercover narcotics cop. For his next assignment he chooses the more inexperienced but tough and good-looking Kristen. Their ultimate target is Gaines, a renowned but very elusive drug dealer. While doing their work they unexpectedly fall into a morass of drug-addiction and fall in love with each other. Despite subjecting themselves to the life of low-class, one-track junkies they do not get the evidence they want to convict Gaines, and instead are forced into using false evidence in court.

There's a scene in which Raynor takes Kristen to a gravel pit. He separates a 6-pack of beer and twists the individual cans down into the dirt. Kristen empties a revolver at the cans, hitting four of them. Raynor retrieves the 2 remaining cans and gives one to Kristen. During their subsequent conversation, Kristen plays with the sta-tab on the can, except that the film is set in about 1972, and the sta-tabs didn't go into use until maybe 10 years later. See more »
'Rush' is a very powerful and moving drama complimented by some of the greatest acting performances of the stars' careers. Patric and Leigh are the most notably outstanding actors as a duo of undercover narcotic police officers delving into the illegal drug world of a small town in Texas. There were a few problems, though, in this film. Small parts of the film's dialogue are flawed and the pace gets too choppy at many points. Nevertheless, 'Rush' remains a great example of what dramatic scenes and acting should be. Highly recommended for drama movie lovers.
