User Reviews

Good Detective Film.

Warning Shot is a good film with an excellent all star cast. The story has an interesting plot. A cop is falsley accused of murder and he goes around trying to find a way to get his job back and clear his name. David Janssen is the cop, Ed Begley is the boss who gets mad when things go wrong. The cast and a jazzy score by Jerry Goldsmith makes this film worth watching. It may not be the best movie in the world nor the best mystery but it’s worth watching.

Sharply atmospheric tough-edged mystery

 
David Jansen gives a bravura performance as a police sergeant who gets tagged with a “Mad Dog” label after a stakeout turns into what appears to be a bad shoot. Ed Begley is terrific as the boss. Sam Wanamaker gives a convincingly cold-blooded performance. Steve Allen has fun as a blowhard newsman who selects Jansen as his target du jour. Lots of interesting twists, appropriately downbeat music, sharp-edged dialogue, and taut direction by Buzz Kulik make this one of my favorite mysteries of the 1960’s, right up there with Harper and Wait Until Dark.
