Sutherland, in a lackluster performance, is an insurance company detective battling a gang of jewel thieves for possession of $3 million worth of diamonds. Lots of fast-moving car chases and slow-moving pickup scenes between Sutherland and O'Neill. It's Duvall, fresh off his Academy
Award-nominated performance in THE GODFATHER (1972), who makes the picture worthwhile. Unfortunately, his role is far too small. Lucien Ballard's fine camerawork (his 101st time behind the camera) is the next best reason for watching.
