User Reviews

 
Mediocre TV Blaxploitation
19 August 2017 | by dariuslanghoffSee all my reviews

This movie is dedicated to NYC policemen who are killed as they try to get the goods on the gunrunners and crack dealers who, like cockroaches, seem to multiply faster than they can be stamped out.

The story tells of two officers who hold an arrest record: Raymond (Mario van Peebles) and Robert (Michael Boatman). When one of them is brutally murdered the other embarks on a personal quest for justice - in best Charles Bronson fashion.

Realism is not a keynote here, but if you enjoy an undemanding old fashioned cops and crims film then you may find this right up your dark alley.
