Critical Reception

“An often overlooked film in Clint Eastwood’s filmography, and atypical of him, to be sure, but if you’re willing to accept him in such an ambiguous role, it’s certainly very gripping. ” – gridoon – IMDB

“It’s a good thing Eastwood became the star he did, or this one might have been long forgotten.” – The Hound – IMDB
