LA cops Gould and Blake get in over their heads when they don't heed orders from above and go after a big crime boss. While higher ups in the police department want the cop duo to just focus on nabbing petty criminals, the team does so while still going after LA kingpin Rizzo. Various fist fights, chases, shootouts and other carnage occur as the two cops go after Rizzo's crime syndicate. Written by

Near the end of the movie, during the ambulance chase, there are already skid marks on the road surface at the school crossing. These appear to be from previous takes on the scene as they match the ambulance's path perfectly. See more »
Trapper John & Baretta as urban vice cops (an underrated classic)
this is a cool movie. neglected to say the least. maybe nowadays in this politically correct universe it would be tagged HOMOPHOBIC, only because the movie uses terms that cops, especially vice, use on the streets. but that's like getting on MEAN STREETS for saying the N word about African Americans and then calling it a racist movie - it's the lingo, folks - no sugarcoating. but i dont know why this movie is so tuff to find on VHS and isnt even close to being on DVD. it's a cool movie with a lot of action, and personally i liked it better than FRENCH CONNECTION. it has a great foot chase scene where theyre running and shooting guns in an indoor market. and also a classic funny ten minutes where the two vice cops are sent to stake out a derelict restroom, looking for perverts or rather, waiting for them. Elliot Gould is great and is just like his Trapper John character, or Philip Marlowe from LONG GOODBYE; and Robert Blake is the exact replica of the character that'd make and break him - Baretta, with the unlit dangling cigarette and all. Blake is fitting as the second banana and is indeed second to Gould's lead character because... well... Gould was a bigger actor at the time, I guess. Alan Garfield is great and cheesy as the bad drug dealer and also, keep an eye out for Sig Haig (jackie brown) as his number one thug.
