A nightmare of fear and panic unfolds in this chilling tale of a lone gunman who sets his sights on a sell-out crowd at a championship football game. Charlton Heston is the police captain who leads the desperate fight to stop the madman - high atop the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum - before he sets off widespread devastation in the jam-packed stadium. John Cassavetes and Martin Balsam are among those risking their lives to thwart the sniper's attempts, while innocent spectators Gena Rowlands, Jack Klugman, Beau Bridges, Walter Pidgeon, David Janssen and thousands of others try to hide from the fatal gun sites and avoid the deadly ensuing stampede.

I saw this film when it came out in 1976 and it didn't stink as much then as it does now. You never get to see the face of the sniper. You don't know his motives other than just assumed evilness. No ransom demanded, no revenge against a person, organization, no nothing. Co-star John cassavettes looks too physically small to be a SWAT commander. The rest of the film's stars are all just television rated actors with no big-screen talent. What the film sort of hits true on in the modern sense is a senseless series of shooting crimes like we saw in Las Vegas. When you have 91,000 fans stuck inside a stadium the gunman can't miss his targets. The final shooting sequence was rather sloppily done.
