movie shows the life of 3 generations of NYC Police officers
27 November 1998 | by (philadelphia,PA ( USA)) – See all my reviews

This movie is about 3 generations of NYC Police officers and the problems that they face. Movie shows the moral problems as well as some psychological questions that the police officers face , and are facing even today. It's been a long time since I have seen this film but I remember it as being very realistic and in my experience very true to life . My only disappointment is that this movie has not been available on video cassette. The movie brings out many of the problems which face our police officers even today especially the moral ones which are being addressed in our departments today.
