Long before Lethal Weapon
28 November 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

I wrote this summary because you have here a buddy cop movie with a white and a black police officers. I know there have been ACROSS 110th STREET starring Anthony Quinn and Yaphet Kotto, back in 1971, but in the TV series, I am not sure if there was that scheme or not so early in the seventies. I also know that this was just one episode with that same scheme and not a whole series concept. Anyway, you have nothing of LETHAL WEAPON here except the buddy black and white story. I was glad to watch Bob Stack, once more in a cop character, more than twelve years after THE UNTOUCHABLES. Brock Peters - remember the black racist opponent of Larry Peerce's INCIDENT - is awesome here. And I won't speak of Ed Lauter whom every movie or TV buff knows. Especially concerning seventies crime flicks. He is the heavy guy here. I would have perfectly seen him as a cop character. Maybe for another time. I am sure he has already been in that show. I will check. Back to this episode you have a classic revenge tale, but fairy shown and one more time by Don Medford. This a two parts story. I'll be back for the second part; I don't know when, but I'll be here.
