Ben Shockley, an alcoholic cop from Phoenix, is given the task to escort witness Augustina “Gus” Mally from Las Vegas. His superior, Commissioner E.A. Blakelock, says she is a “nothing witness” for a “nothing trial.” Mally protests that they are both set up to be killed in a hit, which a jaded Shockley doubts.

Mally reveals herself to be a belligerent prostitute with mob ties and is in possession of incriminating information concerning a high figure in society.

A film that is as absurd as it’s metaphor ‘the little guy can beat the corrupt system’ One of Clint’s best.

The Gauntlet” is fast, furious, and funny. It tells a cheerfully preposterous story with great energy and a lot of style, and nobody seems more at home in this sort of action movie than Eastwood. He plays a cop again, but this time he’s on his own…
