Reviews
Mine: Super violent and super stupid. This just has no reason to be. The villian that continues to attack after being shot a whole bunch of times is just one of the things about this movie that stinks.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Jarring, loud, and extremely bloody actioner; vice cop Reynolds' vendetta against underworld honcho Gassman intensifies after he falls for one of his $1000-a-night hookers (Ward). Action scenes are competently staged, but you'll eventually become numbed by all the sleaze; film's weirdest aspect is its mainstream jazz score. Based on the William Diehl novel, but won't fool anyone who's ever seen LAURA.
