Sorry, must disagree. This is the kind of solid, meat-and-potatoes crime thriller that UA and Fox were doing so well in the '70s. (At times it had a PELHAM 123 vibe, minus the comedy.) Fine cast, great use of Manhattan locations and a real sense of urgency. So yeah, the surprises aren't really surprises, but a film like this is about the journey (literally, in this case) and not the destination, and in that sense it succeeds handily. Just my two cents.
I watched it over the weekend. Not bad, but I didn’t like a scene halfway in- I thought the cops
did things that were flat out dumb and unbelievable. I’ll have to listen to the commentary at some point.
