There have been a million wacko on the loose with two determined cops on his trial type of movies, but this one at least tries something new with the murders. They are your standard knifed or strangled variety but the killer doesn't just do it. He makes the victim help out somewhat, by putting the knife, piano wire, etc. into their hands and then forcing them to effectively off themselves. The film goes at a pretty good pace if you like the usual killing and then police work routine. Though only on the job 3 days together, Rossi and Loggia develop a terrific rapore that would've been nice to see continued in future films perhaps. And you also wonder if this is what John Bender (Nelson's character in "The Breakfast Club") would've gone on to if he hadn't had that enlightening day in the library with his schoolmates. This was suprisingly penned by the writer/director of "Field of Dreams"(!), which I found out by accident in some sort of trivia page on the net. An oddity is that despite the fact that two of the lead actors in the film are killed, this spawned 3 sequels! Rossi, the real star of the film (though credited behind Nelson and Loggia because of their fame) went on to do all of the follow ups. Even Ken Lerner, who has one scene and is killed, pops up in part 4! Some will go along with the psychology used in the final scene, others will either be confused or roll their eyes. But all in all a pretty good suspense/slasher/cop/buddy film.
