There’s nothing to distinguish The Squeeze from routine crime drama in which retribution triumphs. Stacy Keach plays a busted cop fighting the booze habit and some murderous thugs at the same time.

Keach suffers some nasty lumps and sundry humiliations, all in the cause of Edward Fox as a security film exec whose wife and kid are hostages against a million-dollar-plus payoff. Carol White is the terrorized wife, with the complication that she’s also Keach’s former spouse.

Directed on locations in London by Michael Apted, pic has little in the way of style and no great surprises. It does, however, have a kind of gratuitous nasty tone, as evidenced when the thugs holding White captive force her to perform a strip.
