Cop film ,impactfully not bad

This is not a bad formula actioner, let me tell you. When first seeing it back in '85, I was taken aback. It wasn't the movie I thought it would be. The film starts, rather intriguingly with a girl, who's guy rigs the pokie machines, knowing the winning times and numbers. A real smart, soon to be dead cookie here. She plays them, he plays instructor, communicating to her by a mic. Some baddies are on to them, which inevitably leads to our young programmer being killed, head held under water, until he's no longer breathing, which I found a bit of a tough scene. Enter Svenson, bringing a stubborn small talking, and dispassionate cop, and not a very contented one. He sucks at the pokies, gambling not his fortae. He works the murder, while being shot in some investigating endeavors (thank god for bullet proof vests) while being lead on some hairy car chases, that marks some great some stunt work, that works coolly against the Italian music scores, which I loved, gotta be by Ennio Morricone. When getting himself more deeper in danger, he enlists the aid of old buddy, Williamson, a chopper pilot, used in the last action scene (love the chopper going into to side of the mountain, just after Svenson, and company evacuate it). This is quite a cool movie in it's own way, even though there's not much chemistry between our two leads, but it's not half a bad movie at that, and Svenson is such grumpy fun, where at the end, may'be he's hits a winning streak. Just don't expect too much from it, but given that, this one does deliver.
