| A cold,effective thriller
Rod Steiger plays one of the worst neo-nazi criminals ever brought to screen and also one of the most dangerous and maniacal ones.I dont know if this is based on true events,but it is a very realistic movie. Michael Gross plays the FBI agent that is hunting on Steiger,but cant stop him from attacking a few innocent colored victims before he is finally gunned down in a frenzied shootout with the FBI.

I found this movie quite effective as well as realistic.This could have easily been a documentary from the way it looks and feels while you are watching it.Documentary or a movie,it would be as good and useful anyway.Useful because it makes us see what the Aryan movement is all about and what kind of men stand behind it.Lunatics,simply put.Gross makes a great performance and manages not to get completely overshadowed by the brilliant Steiger,which does one of his last powerful performances here.All in all,a piece of work to be admired and taken seriously.Which is pretty hard not to. 9 out of 10
