This is the story of a black man who has been elected sheriff in a U.S. southern county, due to the vote of blacks. He receives a huge amount of hostility from the non-tolerant white establishment, making his job very hard. The white former sheriff has his own struggle, as he balances his devotion to the law with his family and community relations. Things come to a head when the black sheriff puts a white man, the son of a wealthy land-owner of a neighboring county, in jail, and his daddy comes after him. Everyone around has to decide where their values really lie. Written by

Quite Good, But tackles it's subject matter to strongly.
tick...tick...tick..., is a really good film in some ways, well if it had been in the right hands it would have been fantastic, one of the films problems is the bad screenplay and the cheaply used colour which makes it look dated and cheesy, which at times it is. However it tackles it's subject matter considerably well, though at times too strongly. Also, Jim Brown (The Dirty Dozen) gives a good performance as the police officer, who becomes along with his sidekick (who is being a policeman so he can get married) get dollops of racial abuse dropped on them by a guy who looks like Sean William Scott (From American Pie), though this was 29 years before. Good for it's targeted audience, but dull for many.
Slightly Under-rated, **1/2 out of ****
