I saw this one when first released and then again on tv in the 80's. This third time I didn't like it so much. It's cheap and it shows it from beginning to end. There's nothing of the NYC dirt we associate with this kind of movie, the plot is unimaginative and there's that disgraceful element of the political-delinquent minority gang which taints even better movies like Shaft or Hickey and Boggs. And  Duvall for me is miscast: with his protruding belly he still can outrun younger pursuants or punch effectively bigger sized fellas. 6/10

The only part I enjoyed was the bus chase.
