Watch The Gauntlet - Alternative Versions.
A rundown cop who's always on the drink named Ben Shockley is assigned
to accompany a foul-mouthed prostitute in Las Vegas to a protection
program across the country in Phoenix to testify against highly placed
authority figure, although first they have to get through a gauntlet of
bad cops and the mob who actually want them both dead. So now the odds
aren't in their favour, but Shockley is determine to do his job, no
matter how big the odds are against them.
Classic Eastwood is on show here people. Although, it's not one of his
greatest nor particularly original. But this reasonably familiar cop /
action film delivers what it intended to do by giving us a taut little
road movie across baron landscapes with a tremendous amount of brutally
fast-paced shootouts and grand chase scenes. I mean a lot! To sum it
up, shootouts, shootouts and even more shootouts. Watch things go boom
with a lot going on at such a furious pace! What more could you want?
So you ask, why is this nothing out of the ordinary? Because this kind
of thing wasn't particularly new within this era of films. There were
definite shades of Dirty Harry; Eastwood's character Shockley was the
exact opposite to Harry though. The one thing you'll notice is that
there is no real excuse or depth behind the plot, but to stage one
chaotic and stretched out shootout after another. Sometimes they feel
like they go on forever! Nonetheless, they might be far-fetched and
fail logic, but they're rather well set-up by director Eastwood. Giving
us a sudden burst around each corner and because of that there's hardly
a mundane moment
uh, maybe Eastwood did overkill certain shootouts,
but it did get the blood pumping! So, when the "exaggerated" climax
hits the screen - at least the film was consistent in that aspect.
The performances were top-notch, with Eastwood's persona making any
film his in watchable. He gives a stellar performance. Sondra Locke as
Gus Mally was perfect. The chemistry between the leads was outstanding.
The scathing and rough dialogue amongst them was a treat with great use
of sarcasm and offbeat humour. The biting conversations truly built on
the paranoia at hand with many top one-liners. This gives the film a
buddy type of feel. Other key factors are the soothing blues
soundtrack, well established camera shots that capture a beautiful
landscape, but also the panic of the situation they face. While, there
might be underlining themes running throughout the plot, I just didn't
read too much into it.
Just leave your brain at the door and enjoy the total chaos and
destruction that follows with your screen being sprayed with bullets!
Definitely recommended for fans of Eastwood and gritty action films.
