Reviews
Mine: Fun thriller. I kind of like the lone man against the system movies like this one. Daniel Stern does a really good job in supporting role. I could have done with out the Vietnam flashback bits.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Slick action film built around L. A. 's police helicopter surveillance team. Fun at first, but gets stupider (and crueler) as film goes on--with villainous McDowell character especially ludicrous. Even escapist fare has to be believable on its own terms. Later a TV series. Panavision.
