THE GAUNTLET (1977) - Clint Eastwood


Detective Ben Shockley (Clint Eastwood) speaking to a prison guard about the prostitute witness he must transfer from Las Vegas to Phoenix: "On a scale of ten, I'd have to give her a two. And that's only because I've never seen a one before."

Well, you could say the very same thing about this dunderheaded, bullet-brained, completely implausible everyone's-corrupt-but-Clint cop movie. I'd give it a two.

as I remember...the scenes before the run of the Gauntlet in this movie, where they welded steel onto the truck and made it into an unstoppable killing machine, must have inspired the A-Team tv show.
