Based on true events. On the edges of Las Vegas, 17-year-old Andrew's life is spiraling out of control. Unable to cope with the loss of his father, Andrew's descent into drugs and violence is gaining momentum, and the once promising young man is now headed for self-destruction. Andrew's mother, helpless to control her son and fighting an addiction of her own, refuses to watch idly as her only child destroys himself. As a last resort, she hires a private company to forcibly kidnap and confine him in a locked-down and corrupt psychiatric hospital. As Andrew is subjected to the secret physical and emotional abuses of the program something inside him is re-awakened. He must somehow get free to save what's left of his life, but to do that, he knows he must first face his own demons head-on.

William F (it) wrote: Let's be honest here, this is not a very good film. It has nothing to do with anything that made both previous films so iconic and memorable. The casting and performances are mediocre at best, the setting and music score lacks any feeling, and the humour is humourless. A sequel that just needs to be forgotten. I can't even see this film as an actual sequel to the two previous classics.

Sylvester K (br) wrote: A dreadful little politically charged film without any factual evidence to back up the story, it is not only long but the acting and story were both ludicrous, definitely avoid if possible.
John M (us) wrote: Excellent Science-Fiction Thriller! Yes, the movie came out in 1970, so the computer stuff and general surroundings are dated. But, luckily, legendary Visual Effects artist Albert Whitlock is on hand to provide some very key effects at the beginning to help us buy into the film's premise of a very powerful computer just going online.This computer, Colossus, is given complete control over the United States' defenses. As you can imagine, that doesn't end up being the greatest decision ever made!What follows is for you to see. This really is a great movie, and needs to be seen for not just Sci-Fi fans, but thriller fans.Director Joseph Sargent helmed many good films, my favorite of which is another thriller, "The Taking of Pelham One Two Three." That also should be seen!All the attributes work: film score, cinematography, acting, etc. And, the ending has quite a nice kick. Recommended!

Part of the "New French Wave" that existed during the late 50's and 60's which much of the viewing experience, particularly the end, is like this movie is the less equivalent version of Jean Renoir's 1939 controversial masterpiece "Rules Of The Game". 2 out of 4 stars

Albertus A (ca) wrote: This film is like The Notebook with great visuals, a better cast, and a better story. But, I honestly really enjoyed it. It's no best film of the year or anything, but I loved James Cameron's vision and direction. Wished it was shorter because this film is excruciatingly long.
Art S (ag) wrote: Potentially a great deal more audacious in 1967 than now when racism may be less overt than shown here (it has only gone undercover, sadly). Sidney Poitier plays Virgil Tibbs, a Philadelphia homicide detective who gets stranded in Sparta, MS, after being apprehended as a murder suspect (racism) and then asked to help out (but not really - racism again). Rod Steiger plays the new Chief who has to overcome his own redneck impulses while trying to stifle the racist tendencies of his force and the local townspeople. Of course, Poitier solves the crime (despite being misled at one point by his own tendency to suspect rich white racists); however, this isn't really the focus of the film (i.e., I'm not sure the facts of the case lead easily to the real killer). Nevertheless, the political points made here are still well worth it (try if you wish to substitute a Muslim cop into the Poitier role and see how it plays out in your head). Norman Jewison does an OK job directing, although some elements feel a bit schematic and the score by Quincy Jones is dated (sound and use). But you can always rely on Warren Oates!
