Robert Conrad uncovers rogue police unit
23 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"One Police Plaza" (1986) is a neo-noir, listed as such by critic John Grant. It can currently be viewed on YouTube. It was a TV-movie.

This is a decent film. It's not especially original in plot but it has intensity. The photography is quite dark. The acting is good. Robert Conrad is a tightly wound homicide detective, separated from wife but with cordial relations and the chance to get back together. An especially grim killing of a young woman sets him on a determined path. The department pressures him to lay off, but he persists. He's assisted by George Dzundza, a very capable actor. Their investigation leads to a reclusive businessman, Anthony Zerbe, another actor who always makes an impression. The cast is rounded out by James Olson, yet another familiar and capable presence. The story is very much oriented toward showing us the inside of the New York City police department, showing the pressures upon it and showing how this shapes its behaviors. But it also works as a murder mystery and police procedural, engaging our interest throughout.
