Suzanne Pleshette Was Great
28 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Suzanne Pleshette, (Capt. Janet Hamilton) gave an outstanding performance as an experienced female officer who has been assigned to clean up a bad section of Pittsburgh, Pa., where police officers rob jewelry stores and deal with prostitutes. Danny Aiello, (Chief) enlists the help of Janet to clean up this police station where even policemen are being killed because they know too much. Capt. Hamilton is also upsetting her husband and they are beginning to start going their separate ways until things start to change in the police station. There are many threats made to Capt. Hamilton, however, their were loyal officers who stood behind her and decided to start informing on their fellow officers. Suzanne Pleshette surprised me with her great acting as a tough Captain who could clean up a very bad police department.
