Those who choose to review don't seem to "get" this film. Sinatra is able to portray the character of a realistically strong, dedicated, and loving man. He is one of the few actors who could pull it off. Sinatra is both believable and fascinating in his role as an exceptional police investigator with a palpable off-beat manliness who maintains his allegiance to his chosen duty while suffering the great tradgedy of his own personal life.

I don't usually buy bargain priced (under $10) DVD's from my local Best Buy, buy I saw this on the shelf and recognized it as Sinatra's final film (let's all have the good grace to forget his cameo as himself in "The Cannonball Run II"). While it is tame by "Seven" standards, it features an engrossing cast. Although it was his first starring role in ten years, old blue eyes brings reality and assuredness to his detective role. His last scene is particularly impressive. He is aided by James Whitmore, who is a welcomed sight as a coroner who assists the investigation. Leonard Maltin is quite correct that Faye Dunaway is supremely wasted, but her storyline doesn't detract significantly from the main plot. While not the greatest serial killer mystery ever made, this is certainly a must-see for Sinatra fans. There's zip in the way of extra features (What do you expect for a $10 DVD), but be warned: the chapter listing on the inner case sleeve contains a SPOILER picture from the end of the film.

It appears that Frank Sinatra was never fond of acting and that's a shame -- especially after watching this terrific thriller. Sinatra is perfect as a world-weary cop ready to retire who decides that his last case is to pursue a serial killer. (This movie was made 17 years after the similar Seven). Sinatra exudes cool, vulnerability and the toughness of the cinema's best action stars. This always-exciting, very suspenseful and underrated crime drama was overlooked by virtually every critic who reviewed his filmography after Sinatra died. Instead, it belongs among his best. With his quiet dignity and sincerity, Sinatra delivers one of his -- and this genre's -- finest performances.

While it is wonderful to see Sinatra in his final motion picture, the film could have been much better. It has fleeting moments of strength and interest, but all in all, it appears flat and tired. Those audiences used to thrillers like The Manchurian Candidate, Suddenly, Man With the Golden Arm, or even today's entries such as SEVEN, will find this film slow and boring. Of course, Sinatra fans will find it worthwhile nevertheless, and it is in this aspect that I recommend it.

For the true Sinatra fan this is a must-see! The production value is good and the story is 3-dimensional. Sinatra shows what a pro he is with a truly believable performance. The story is dark and somewhat disturbing, while remaining thoroughly engaging. For those who enjoy trying to solve a good murder-mystery, this one will keep you guessing.
