Motorcycle Cops and Motorcycles are the Main Thing in this Mainstream Movie of the Docu-Types that were Prolific in the Early Fifties. This one has the Whole First Half Devoted to a Behind the Scenes Look at the Police Academy Training. Intriguing to Some it is quite a Boring Affair unless Ogling the Vintage Bikes is Your Thing.
It Zeroes in on Three Recruits and Their Initiation with some Youthful Playfulness and getting the Babes is Forefront. In the Second Half it is a much Better Movie as these Rookies are Thrust into a Crime Investigation and in the Third Act it Becomes a real Barn Burner with some Hard-Edged Violence and Believable Danger.
Ralph Meeker Melts the Screen with His Macho Egomania and Foolish Behavior but in the Space of the Film's Short Running Time Matures into a Full Blown Police Officer, however never Losing Sight of the Ladies.
