A Balancing Act
30 October 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Memorable episode. The rooftop acrobatics on the edge of a 500-foot drop are near breath-taking. Reviewer rwint1611 is spot on— those who's-going-to-chicken-out-first sequences are minor masterpieces of staging and editing. There's just no substitute for real urban skyline as gritty backdrop. Then there's Martin Sheen, barely recognizable, doing a bravura turn as the giggly wacko gang leader. This is still early in his and James Caan's careers, but Sheen makes a lasting impression. Too bad he doesn't get higher billing, since he's is really the star. The story's mainly an excuse to get the rooftop acrobatics going. It's something about a girl (Silo) dumping Sheen for reformed Caan, and how social worker (Kamen) tries to smooth it all out. Basically, Todd and Buzz remain onlookers to the unfolding drama. Anyhow, it's the riveting visuals plus a wacko Sheen that lift this entry into the memorable. So catch it if you haven't already.
