| A decent-enough action movie with pretty good stuntwork
Jack Vacek, who had previously made the low-budget car chase classic Double Nickels, scores again in this Dirty Harry clone about renegade L.A. cop John Turner (Vacek) who purposely defies his superiors by trying to expose a city-wide drug ring that takes him from California to Mexico and back. Along the way, he becomes a father figure to a troubled orphan kid and also falls in love with Sarah, a magazine photographer.

This film actually features pretty good stunts. There are a number of wild car chases and crashes, including a harrowing shootout in the film's climax. Look for cameos by future actress Constance Marie as an extra in a nightclub scene and H.B. Halicki as a motorist in the film's beginning.
