The film is a remake of a series episode, the pilot. The film is a lot more glossy than the TV series and therfore looses some of the grim anti hero of the main character. David Callan is one of the greatest TV characters ever to grace our screens, the film is fast paced and well shot with plenty of action, and a lot of well know stars in some of their first roles on TV. A very good film which stands alone, but better if viewed along with the 1st series.

Bought this DVD some time ago and was suprised at how good it was.Edward Woodward is superb in his usual restrained way as the killer with a conscience,Callan,and he is ably assisted by a great cast.Russel Hunter is in superlative form as the unforgettable "Lonely",Peter Egan suitably loathsome as the oily Meers,Eric Porter convincing as the "only following orders" Hunter and Carl Mohner strangely sympathetic as the arms runner Schnider.Unlike other films of a similar type Callan manages to convey a strong sense of what murder can do to a person (even when that murder is sanctioned by goverment).The psychological effects upon the lead character are there for us all to see.Callan drinks too much,seems always to be hovering on the edge of a breakdown of sorts or a millimeter away from exploding violently,yet these faults make him all too human to us the viewer.We can see the turmoil that Callan goes through when he has killed someone(witness his dispatching of the giant Dave Prowes and his immediate reaction afterwards)and we contrast that naturally with the almost lighthearted approach of Meers.They are both professional killers but our heart goes out to Callan for the humanity he shows and this is why we are so affronted when the secetary is instructed by Hunter to change Callans file from yellow to red(this has its own unique significance in the film).This movie is well worth watching;whether you buy it on vhs or dvd format.The performances alone quite apart from the subject matter are a real suprise.I would have no qualms about recommending this film to anyone it is superb fare.Buy this movie you wont be dissapointed!!

Edward Woodward is always a joy to watch. I don't think I've ever seen him give a bad performance. This is the film "spinoff" from the superb TV series. As with a lot of film versions, it loses a lot of the mood and intimacy of the series, which was largely studio-based, but it's faster-paced and there are more action and outdoor scenes, so it's a trade-off in a way. As has been noted in other reviews, this is a rework of the very first Callan story from Armchair Theatre (A Magnum for Schneider). There is another Callan film (from 1974) available on video called "This is Callan", but as far as I can tell it's just another title for the same film (Both "Callan" and "This is Callan" have the same running time, cast, and director, and "This is Callan" isn't listed in Callan episode guides at all, so logically they must be the same film).
