This movie deserves a remake
22 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Despite its' flaws and shortcomings, and yeah, Moriarty was a questionable choice as the protagonist rookie cop his- foot chase and subsequent confrontation with a targeted black drug dealer salvaged his otherwise weak, defeated,emasculated character.I thought that this movie was a gritty,seedy,cynical well acted, hardboiled 70's cop flick that was vastly underrated. The plot, based on an actual NYPD case was plausible, and the NYPD police hierarchy's political mindset during that era was aptly displayed. They were ready to toss one of their own-an underling,perhaps, but still one of their own-under the train to save their flagging careers and avoid a volatile racial outcome. Kotto's streetwise,paternalistic portrayal as an NYPD detective solidified his stake as a preeminent black actor of that era. This movie ,along with the French Connection, the Seven Ups, Death Wish and Serpico, is one of the all time best NYPD movies of the 70's. This is a movie that's begging to be re made.
