Despite its B-movie budget, THE THREAT is an exciting, tightly controlled film that never lets its audience down. McGraw is a vicious killer who breaks out of prison and is determined to get even with everyone responsible for putting him there. He kidnaps O'Shea, the cop who arrested him;
Conroy, the district attorney who convicted him; and Grey, the nightclub singer McGraw is convinced ratted on him in the first place. Shayne is the cop who must stop McGraw and rescue the hostages. The film becomes a violent cat-and-mouse game among the principals, with tension that doesn't let
up. The performances are also excellent. McGraw is the quintessential psychotic, drawing his character well and making him terrifyingly believable. The direction pays close attention to all details, from police investigations to tense confrontations. It's films like this that the writers and
directors of the French New Wave rightfully recognized as true cinema.
