Review by MarK Losben (posted on 26-Aug-2007)
This is an excellent film which somehow flew under the radar. Al Pacino was terrific (as usual), but this was a film in which Gene Hackman was required to act....and he did. Most of the other movies he was in did not call for him to act to any degree (except for a five minute part in "Young Frankenstein").
Though it's been decades since I've seen this movie, I remember it was very intense, very well acted (by all), and though it is a bit dark in places it also has it's comedic moments, surprisingly accomplished by Mr. Hackman. It is worth seeing if only to witness Gene Hackman's performance (which should have won him an oscar, in my opinion).
Do you know something we don't?
