In order to track down bail jumpers, Ralph ‘Papa’ Thorson goes on a series of routine and not-so-routine searches. Sometimes he takes down his quarry easily. At other times, he’s forced to extreme measures which result in the injury or death of a lawbreaker. And then again, there are other moments when his own life is on the line. It’s all enough to make Thorson question what he has done with his life.

User Reviews: This is surely not McQueens best Movie ever. But it’s fun to watch and the fact, that he insisted on playing a terrible car driver makes it even more enjoyable. The worst part of this movie is clearly its terrible musical score. It’s just irritating. While most action scenes (like the famous Subway Chase) are not dubbed, the movie gets an almost soap opera like touch (barely watchable) when Steve is with his girlfried. I watched this movie the first time when I was 14 and now (20 years later) I found it on the DVD shelf in Walmart and bought it, because I liked it so much the first time I saw it.
