Steve McQueen tops the cast as “Doc” McCoy, fresh out of the joint and eager to grab revenge and a few piles of sweet, sweet cash.
Uneasily working with his estranged wife and hampered by sleaze-balls to the left and cold-blooded killers to the right, our anti-hero isn’t exactly a sweetheart.
But then again, who is among this film’s motley collection of no-good-niks?
It was the ’70s man. Dark and devious was the flavor of the day.
