Full movie description "The One Man Jury":Officer Jim Wade is a loose cannon on the force with a reputation roughing up suspects, informants, witnesses, and just about everybody else who rubs him the wrong way. When women start being killed by mysterious serial murderer called The Slasher, Wade vows to put a stop to the killing spree, regardless of whether through legal means or not.
Reviews of the The One Man Jury"The One Man Jury" (1978) is a late 70s crime film in the "Dirty Harry" or "Death Wish" or vigilante justice tradition. It's a rough-hewn movie, not as smoothly done or as well-written as those two predecessors. Jack Palance is effective as he underplays a detective who cannot win in the courtroom, the system being soft on crime and criminals, so that he eventually becomes his own one man judge, jury and executioner. Chris Mitchum appears, but he's not given that much to do. But there is a meaty role for Joe Spinell as a mobster. To find a murderer, Palance does a deal with Spinell. That murderer is a kooky serial killer, a young man with bizarre behavior. That's actor Jack McCracken, and like Spinell, he adds a lot to the movie. The attractive Pamela Shoop gets quite a lot of screen time as Palance's girl friend and budding cop who thinks that criminals can be cured if they're found out early enough in their lives.
My impression is that Jack Palance appeared in a good many lesser movies, even junk, but I haven't seen most of it. Therefore I expected this film to be quite bad. It wasn't. Palance had a fairly meaty role and took it seriously.
I consider this kind of film as a direction that noir took in the 70s as it portrayed police deviance and corruption. That provides a reference point for some of these 70s films like this one. There's a road that travels from "The Big Heat" and "The Racket" to "Dirty Harry" and then beyond to "Deadly Hero" (1975) with Don Murray as a cop gone bad. There are also good cop films that nevertheless depict a solitary cop working within a system that doesn't work.
