Rating: 2.5/4 -- It's clear immediately that Dead Bang, written by Robert Foster and directed by John Frankenheimer, isn't looking to reinvent the wheel in terms of its narrative... Full Review
Reel Film Reviews
Rating: 2/5 -- Entirely standard cop fare. And Don Johson is the cop.
Rating: C+ -- A film that maybe could only be more absurd if Woody Allen played the Don Johnson role. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: 2/5 -- the lowest point in John Frankenheimer's career
Rating: 6/10 -- John Frankenheimer was unhappy with the way the studio cut this one, but it remains a competent, watchable action-thriller. Most memorable for a scene where Don Johnson's hungover cop pukes on a suspect.
Rating: 2/5 -- An excitable but mawkish misfire by action-oriented filmmaker Frankenheimer. A vehicle designed to capitalize on Johnson's roguish appeal simply results in a dead bang.
Description by OLDIES.com:
Jerry Beck's life is on the skids. The one thing he has going for him is police work. His street smarts and instinct for trouble have catapulted him onto the trail of a gang of murderous white supremacists - and into the bullet-frenzied firestorm in their subterranean Colorado headquarters. It's a ride without handrails, seat belts or brakes, a headlong plunge into the heroics of a law enforcer pushed to the max.
