A hard but mediocre cop is assigned to escort a prostitute into custody from Las Vegas to Phoenix, so that she can testify in a mob trial. But a lot of people are literally betting that they won't make it into town alive.
Retired FBI profiler Terry McCaleb (Eastwood), who has recently had a heart transplant, is hired by Graciela Rivers (De Jesus), to investigate the death of her sister, Gloria, who happens to have given McCaleb his heart. On the case, he soon deduces that the killer, who staged the murder to look like a random robbery, may actually be a serial killer Terry was trailing for years in the FBI. Can the elderly and feeble McCaleb, who had intended to spend his retirement living on his boat in the Los Angeles harbor, and who can't drive, and has to nap regularly, muster up the endurance to find the killer?

Movie poster artwork for this movie featured a full red tint over the black print, symbolizing blood. In the earlier Clint Eastwood film Tightrope (1984), red was also a visual motif on the poster, but there evoked adult sexual themes and the red light district instead. See more »

Clint Eastwood. He's made a bunch of good movies, a few really good movies, and a couple of great movies. He's also made a number of stinkers and this is one of 'em. Plot holes & stupid behavior from the first scene to the last. If you're thinking about renting this, well, you've been warned. How it got a 6.3 I'll never know.
