Veteran bounty hunter Ralph “Papa” Thorson (Steve McQueen, in his final film role) goes on a series of downright dangerous searches to bring in the bad guys in this action film (with some comedy sprinkled in) based on the real-life bounty hunter Thorson. With each life-threatening incident in the line of duty, Thorson questions his chosen profession and his longevity in it. Kathryn Harrold plays Thorson’s pregnant girlfriend, Dotty.
Steve McQueen plays “Papa” Thorson, a modern day bounty hunter who always runs into some action when he tries to get his man. He balances his dangerous life with a very-pregnant girlfriend who is tentative about marriage due to her failed first marriage. Thorson finds himself as both pursuer and the pursued in this explosive, action-packed movie, the last film Steve McQueen made before passing away. Unfortunately, there are some violent scenes in the film, along with strong language as well as a few scenes of sex outside of marriage so we are unable to award this movie our Dove Seal as a family-friendly picture.
