Movie Reviews

Possibly the best Police movie ever
rhyatt4 | Tombstone, Arizona | 07/19/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This movie inspired me to a law enforcement career that lasted 28 years. George C. Scott (Officer Kilvinsky) delivers one of his best performances as a veteran patrolman of the L.A.P.D. He teaches a rookie cop "Stacy Keach" how to survive on the streets of L.A. Erik Estrada plays a former gang banger that turned cop, only to find himself working patrol in his old stomping grounds. The realism was great. No doubt they used police advisors when making the film. A sad movie that will make you realize that cops are human. Kilvinsky the cynical cop, shows compassion in dealing with illegal Mexican immigrants that are being taken advantage of by a money grubbing landlord. Stacy Keach suffers a failed marriage and gets involved in an interracial relationship. Truly a gut wrenching movie that shows the brutality of police work, both mentally and physically. I'd pay a hundred dollars if I could get the movie on DVD."
Excellent Police Drama
Dave P. | Nashville, TN | 08/30/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you like police movies, you'll love this one. Stacy Keach and Erik Estrada (CHiPs, in one of his first movies) are graduates of the police academy as they begin their careers within the police department. Of special interest is the relationship between Keach and George C. Scott (a seasoned veteran looking forward to retirement).

This is a true-to-life story of cops and their daily struggles as they balance their jobs with their personal life. George C. Scott is excellent in this movie and worth watching for his acting alone. Stacy Keach gives a great performance as a new cop juggling family and his quest to further his career beyond the police department.

Plenty of action sequences and a true depiction of the struggles that our police force face on a daily basis. Watch Erik Estrada in one of his earliest roles.

A must see movie for action, drama, and life on the streets. I own the VHS version and I am glad that this movie was finally released on DVD. A true classic."

"A Geart LawEnforcement Movie set in the LosAngeles 60's It Demostrates the Mental and Emotional Problems that working the Streets of LA as a Cop have to endure! This shows How Wambaugh as a X-LAPD Offficer and Writer, helped to get trama care to LawEnforcment Personal. This is also a Movie thats costars the Young James Woods and Erick Estrada in their early carrier. I grew Up in LosAngeles (The Valley) and this Movie gives a great View of LosAngeles During the Watts Riots in 63'"
