Nighthawks (1981)

A conservative street cop reluctantly agrees to terminate an international terrorist who has demanded media attention.

Effective, but simple-minded thriller offering a psychopath terrorist without a cause and a gutsy cop; Keith Emerson wrote the interesting (and dated) score.

Halliwell (no star): "Kojak-style thriller with a rather glum attitude to its subject."

Maltin***: "Exciting story...On target from the first scene to the fade-out, with plenty of hair-raising moments along the way."
