Sharky's Machine
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
half a star
Sharky's Machine Poster
Primary Location: First Saw: In Theatre Saw at/with: With Peter L.
Rating: R Year: 1981 Category: Drama Thriller Action
Director: Burt Reynolds Time: 122:00:00 min. Writer: William Diehl & Geral Di Pego

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.
