Sly Stallone Shows Great Promise For More Important Roles
8 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Plot In A Paragraph: Rick Daly (Sly Stallone) is a young cop with good intentions to help people. In response to a knife-killing, he gives chase and accidentally kills a young boy. Kojak (Telly Savalas) attempts to protect Daly when the public reacts furiously, demanding revenge, but he gets suspicious when cracks appear in Daly's story. Now the tables are turned, the cops feel Kojak is persecuting Daly, but Kojak is intent on finding out the truth.

In possibly the best episode of "Kojak", Telly Savalas, does what Telly Savalas does as Kojak, Future Rambo 2 co star Charles Napier, is here and in great shape, it must be said. But this episode is all about Sly Stallone. He gives the best performer of his career so far. (Including his great turn in "Lords Of Flatbush") this is a million miles away from his performance in "Death Race 2000". He is displaying the sort of acting talent that got him nominated for an Oscar a year and a half later for "Rocky". Which he should have won in my humble opinion, but the Academy sympathetically decided to give Peter Finch a posthumous Oscar. The scene on the rooftop with Telly Savalas is some of the finest acting of his career, and he shows great promise for more important roles.
