One more urban cop story
23 May 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Effective, fast paced story this episode speaking of narcotic agents fighting against drug smugglers using all means in order to run their business. Typical daily burden for cops in the big city. Barry Sullivan plays here the chief officer. A kind of buddy movie, as we have already seen many times before in crime flicks. Two cops pals in on and off duty life, with their girl friends and families. The usual stuff but fairly done, with sometimes a slice of comedy, from time to time. And third rate supporting characters add some spice to this typical seventies story telling. This story also speaks of the black community in those famous seventies era; so you've also got here a bit of blaxploitation too.
