The movie was filmed at LAPD's Hollywood Division Stationhouse. The police officers seen in the background are not extras, but actual police officers. See more »

Honestly, Harry. Did you see me in "The Last Rebel"?
And you saw me in "The End of Desire"?
Then I think you've seen everything there is of me to see.
I also remember a movie your husband made. He shot 12 guys with a 6-shot revolver. I ain't gonna argue with that kind of marksmanship.

This won't ever be anyone's favourite movie. It sets its sights fairly low, so it doesn't have any difficulty in hitting its targets. Nevertheless, it will trump many other thrillers simply because of the sheer professionalism of its cast. Esposito is an irritation and Liev Schreiber is fantastically dull as ever, but the real joy comes from seeing the old pros, Newman, Hackman, Sarandon, Channing and Garner doing their thing. Authority oozes from the screen whenever any one of them is on, which fortunately is nearly all the time. Hackman is particularly fine, especially considering he has virtually nothing to do.
This must be the oldest cast since Cocoon!
7 out of 10. It would be nothing without its principals.
