Storyline

Earl Eischied was the very tough and very "hands-on" Chief of Detectives of the New York Police Department. Although he was a firm believer in law and order, Eischied wasn't above bending the law here and there if it got results, much to the chagrin of the fussy Deputy Commissioner Kimbrough. Eischied's occupation was mainly a desk job, but he's much rather be on the streets busting heads than pushing pencils in an office. Earl's pet cat was named P.C. (for Police Commissioner).

May be the next best thing Baker has ever done
19 September 2005 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Eischied is a continuation of the character Baker portrayed in the TV miniseries, "To Kill a Cop", which I believe is his best. Then again, that doesn't say much. The JDB movies are almost always awful, with the possible exception of Walking Tall and some appearances in James Bond. And television during these times was in pursuit of toned-down bestsellers. In To Kill a Cop, he plays the hero who's not above to doing amoral (and perhaps, immoral) things to keep his job. Yet, he redeems himself with the successful capture of the bad guys. In the TV series, however, they toned down (almost eradicated) the moral ambiguity of his character. So, now he's a "good" cop after the bad guys. It's of average quality which could have been redeemed if they only made Eischied the morally questionable cop he really was.
