Shockley travels to Vegas and finds that Gus Mally is an aggressive and intelligent prostitute with a college degree and she tells him that the odds are against her showing up in court. Shockley learns that she will actually testify against a powerful mobster and the mafia is chasing them trying to kill them both. He calls Blakelock and request a police escort from Phoenix to protect them. But soon he discovers that someone is betraying him in the police department. Now, Shockley and Malley hijack a bus and Shockley welds thick steel plates and transforms the cabin in an armored bus trying to reach the Forum. But they will need to drive through a gauntlet of police officers armed with heavy weapons.
Plot: Phoenix cop Ben Shockley is well on his way to becoming a derelict when he is assigned to transport a witness from Las Vegas. The witness turns out to be a belligerent prostitute with mob ties—and incriminating information regarding a high-ranking figure.

Clint runs “The Gauntlet” with a lady named Gus.
This baroque and utterly implausible action drama subscribes to the over-the-top theory of movie making. Huge quantities of bullets, bikers and bad apples are unleashed on Mr.Eastwood, Ms. Locke, his remand witness, and us, the audience. Eastwood executes the gauntlet with great resolve and resourcefulness: he even knows how to fortify a bus with armored plates. Clint is in peak form and Locke will never again reach the heights that she does here. Clearly, the two have wonderful screen chemistry and would remain together as a couple for more than a decade. Watching the film today, I think there is a scene that went missing–or was cut. It occurred at the beginning of the movie and involved the sadistic police commissioner and Locke’s prostitute. The scene is later described in great detail by Locke when she and Clint are on the lam in a desert cave. So where is it? My dad took me to see this “R” rated film on a bitterly cold night in early February ’78–it was released in late ’77. I think he was unaware of the rating because I did get an eyeful that night. Make sure you see this movie letterboxed in order to absorb all the destructive power and subtle artistry on display.
Review By: lemon993 Rating: Date: 2004-06-07
Best of the 1970s action movies
The big part for Sondra Locke, who plays Augustina “Gus” Malley, was dealing with a very tough cop, Clint Eastwood (who plays Ben Shockley). Both have to deal with a Phoenix police commissioner who thinks he is going to be good on the outside—but very sneaky and nasty on the inside.

Throughout the movie, it seems like Sondra is almost like an “Annie Oakley” of some kind especially when she carries a gun…and it was scary to find out that Gus was targeted for death by several parties around Arizona and Phoenix if she tries to testify in a wasteful trial.

This “Gauntlet” flick may not be “Mission Impossible”, but Ben accepts an assignment from the commissioner that cannot be revealed at all except by him and the commissioner. Then, as soon as he picks up Gus, they face a maze of attempts on their lives.

The camera-work during the helicopter gunman/motorcycle chase scene was actually the best. You see the chase on a variety of angles–close up, panoramic, cutting away, and zooming in.

The fight scene on the freight train between the crazed bikers, Ben, and Gus reminds me of the phrase “Throw Momma Off The Train”—but even more than that—it reminds me of Clint Eastwood’s appearances in spaghetti westerns like “A Fistful of Dollars.”

The soundtrack in the flick reminded me of Charles Mingus’s jazz style.
