Charlton Heston, John Cassavetes
Universal; Directed by Larry Peerce
Rated R; 115 minutes; 1977
91,000 happy football fans and a single madman with a rifle are the ingredients for panic at the Super Bowl in this tingling disaster thriller. A Special Weapons and Tactics team is called in to demobilize the sniper before he shoots -- and turns the placid crowd into a trampling herd mobbing the narrow exit gates. With support from surly John Cassabetes, Charlton Heston plays the top cop who tries to stop the gunman in the tower. A story of greed, romance and oil.
