A professional bank robber leads one daring last raid from a Los Angeles bank under the watch of the hardened detective following him.
Mean, moody and slick cops and robbers game of cat-and-mouse, the sort of drama now (sadly) more comfortable on television than in the cinema, with all the cliches, violent action and foul language firmly in place, and plenty of good dramatic moments among a starry supporting cast, with two leading men who easily slip in to characteristic material.
