Reviews for The Gauntlet
Review - Gauntlet, The
There isn't a scene in this movie that makes sense. Thousands upon thousands of shots are fired, but the only people who are killed are an innocent ambulance driver, a creepy Vegas cop who happened to get in the way and Shockley's old partner. Why did the Phoenix cops shoot most of their rounds into the empty passenger portion of the bus instead of trying to disable it or hit Shockley through the armor in front? Why did they suddenly stop firing and let Ben and Gus walk out unharmed? Why did they stand by stupidly while Gus shot their chief. Why did none of them get hit when they were lined up in rows firing at a target between the rows or when they were all crowded closely around Blakelock when Gus shot him? It's not just that the whole plot involved a conspiracy that was never explained — it's that the action sequences themselves made no sense, even apart from the plot.
