Savannah lawyer Rick Magruder is at a party celebrating his courtroom victory defending a cop killer when a member of the catering staff, Mallory Doss, discovers her car has been stolen. Having had a few drinks, Magruder offers to give her a lift home, a decision that turns into a one night stand. Rick soon learns that her nut-case father, Dixon, seems to have begun threatening her again. Rick puts the force of his law firm behind Mallory, who he barely knows, has Dixon picked up by the police, and subpoenas the girl's belligerent ex-husband, Pete, to testify against the old man. Dixon is put away in an asylum. However, he soon escapes, putting the lives of everyone who conspired against him in jeopardy.

Their influence is widespread within the community if not with the public in general. Something to consider for your record collection.

Luc M (mx) wrote: True stories of comics, except that, as is always different, you can not watch a movie and think that it will be identical to the comics, you have to think it's a parallel universe. But agor leaving for the aspects of the film, I thought the Hulk, well done, I thought it has good special effects, the story is not told from the beginning, is told by say, flashbacks, is a movie you can watch quietly.

Brett B (es) wrote: An ill-advised attempt to keep the franchise going after Peter Sellers' death. I can understand (on a basic level) what the intention was with this, and I'm sure Blake Edwards saw it as something of a tribute, but it's hard not to look at this film as being (at least a little bit) in bad taste. Sure, the unused Sellers material is nice to see, as is the parade of former series guest stars, but the movie is screwed from a structure standpoint, and very little attempt is made to disguise the fact that this is NOT really a narrative story at all. It's a clips show, something that would have been better suited to a television retrospective or documentary.

Zoran S (kr) wrote: It's an intriguing Western. Visually, the style is aggressive intensified continuity (with constant zooms, pans, and manipulation of focal length) that would become common in 70s Hollywood. But also it's a grim film about moral authoritarianism. As Burt Lancaster's character says, "I'm a lawman. Do you know what a lawman is, Crowe? He's a killer of men. That's what the job calls for. There are new ways to put it, but it reads the same."
