Although the concept might be somewhat implausible, it depicts EXACTLY how this kind of shit would go down if it did happen here, thanks to the fantastic cast. You will recognise many more faces than those of the top-billed cast (if you're British, anyway) but every one is believable in their role, even if the plot isn't.

Ian C (gb) wrote: Roy Scheider stars in this gritty crime thriller, as the head of a special unit of cops who throw away the rule book in order to hunt down the killers of one of their team. Tony Lo Bianco is excellent as the slimey informant, a text book car chase and some police bruatlity insures that this stands up with the best of them from the golden decade of gritty crime flicks.

It's a tricky balance, and almost unfortunately because he always manages to outshine the creature in these films. But, hey, he's fun to watch so whatever.
