      Audience Member After a drug bust turns deadly, $1 million turns up missing. After canvassing the neighbourhood fails to turn up the missing cash, the cops and dealers converge on prime suspect Officer Hooks. Contains one of the finest casts ever assembled and a true crime thriller. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Another decent effort from Fred Williamson as he plays a frustrated narcotics cop who is tired of seeing drug dealers walk because of a system which can't make charges stick. A great secondary cast with Saxon, Lauter, and Roundtree. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member How can you have a cast that includes Fred Williamson, Richard Roundtree, John Saxon, Ed Lauter, Joe Spinell & Tony King & not be badass? Rather easily as The Big Score proves by having a pedestrian script, lack of budget & missing just about every opportunity. The biggest mistakes is that John Saxon is killed not even an hour into this & RIchard Roundtree is barely in it w/ no true identity. This is more Fred Williamson's vehicle as he also takes on role of director. You would figure he'd have some more say in the product like having a better looking old lady. If this was made 5 years earlier w/ those involved (& got a studio behind it) it probably would have been better. The music acts sure would have been a lot better that's for sure Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Lots of action. Effects were terrible. Then again, these days we're spoiled with that. Grade:C Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Another decent effort from Fred Williamson as he plays a frustrated narcotics cop who is tired of seeing drug dealers walk because of a system which can't make charges stick.

      Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times It's a slick, gritty picture filled with good supporting performances, and it uses a lot of locations south of the Loop that haven't been seen in the movies before. Jun 20, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
