A tautly directed, thrilling police procedural, the film stars Walter Matthau (The Odd Couple, Charley Varrick, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3) as Lt. Jake Martin who must work with the younger, brash Lt. Leo Larsen (Bruce Dern, Nebraska) to solve a crime involving a busload of people who are massacred, one of which was the old partner of Martin.

The late critic Roger Ebert called the film “an awfully good police movie: taut, off-key, filled with laconic performances.”
