Those expecting I Spy like capers will be in for a surprise. Deadly serious private eye thriller in the Dirty Harry mold! Very good thriller, and Cosby in serious mode is a revelation.

Current DVD is a travesty. Terrible quality transfer of what looks like an off-air VHS recording and censored to boot. Complain to your senator. One redeeming feature - the 'spooky' United Artists logo intro.

October 2011: Update
Now released in much better quality via the Warner archive!
(vidcaps are from the older tattier version)
