One lost seventies crime gem.
11 July 2015 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

Beware this episode written by the great Michael Mann, folks. A cop tale which could have pleased to Olivier Marchal or David Ayer. A pure cop tale speaking of an undercover heat accused of stealing a drug shipment from a bunch of hoodlums. I felt great pleasure to find here the seventies atmosphere I love so much. , with a slight of blaxploitation. I don't particularly know the actors but who cares? But it only remains TV stuff, with a little humorous situations and many talkative equences. It reminds me CHOIR BOYS, also from Joseph Wambaugh. Speaking of him, it seems that this tale was inspired from actual events that happened in daily routine Wambaugh'job as a patrol man in LA district. Directed by Corey Allen a TV production specialist.
