The beginning of this Schimanski is really great: Thanner and Schimanski are walking through demonstrating people, who smack and are smacked up by the police. They both don't care about it and just walk right trough it, to the place of crime (the "Tatort"). They are the real Kings of Cool, Travolta go home.
Apart from this, the movie seems like the try to make a TV movie a cinema picture, what doesn't work. The action does not fit into the story and so on.
PS: Charles Brauer plays the bad guy, but he is lot more convincing as "Brocki" in his later "Tatorts" together with Manfred Krug, on the other side of the law.
