Funny seeing this after nearly 20 years...
4 December 2008 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

The year was 1989, which has always been one of my fave years in pop culture, in movies AND music. Now, I saw this at the cinema at the time and considered the film a gritty, convincing, engaging and exiting bit of policier. Keep in mind I was 15 at the time. In this film, Richard Berry plays an *spoiler* undercover agent who has to team up with Jewish cop Patrick Bruel to infiltrate a network of radical Muslim terrorists. I was exited to see this programmed on TF1 last week and taped it, hoping to catch some of that teen sentiment again. Boy, was I ever wrong. From a chilling cop movie with a social conscience, this had aged into an unintentionally funny, heavy handed and clichéd piece of work with the worst soundtrack this side of Jess Franco's "Faceless". Nevertheless, I kept watching of course and realized that this was one of those badly aged movies that despite of it's complete awfulness keeps you glued to the screen. If you like your cop movies populated with clichéd characters, featuring bouts of exaggerated violence and a soundtrack that makes you want to punch your TV-screen, this one's totally for you.
