    Far from the best of the Clint Eastwood-Don Siegel collaborations, this fish out of water police actioner is weighed down by a clunky, episodic structure and lack of engaging characterisation to hold together either the (now dated) humour or the more serious fight and chase scenes. But it is also notable for how deeply unsympathetic Eastwood’s Arizona deputy is, so that it is hard to work up any interest in his repeatedly sabotaged attempts to apprehend a psychopathic criminal and bring him back home. Siegel tries to inject some knowing hipness by dropping Eastwood’s cop in the middle of NYC counter-culture, but it all comes off as rather forced. Where Siegel does better is in the final motorcycle chase sequence, which at least brings some punch to an otherwise flaccid experience. 4 years 1 month ago

    I have read that this was a precursor to DIRTY HARRY. It is the same director, but this is a bit weirder with more comedy. Recommended. 8 years 4 months ago
