Doing It In Style
23 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Good cops versus bad cops but done with great style. Set in late 1940's Los Angeles this film has a real feel for the period with the costumes and cars. The background sets are stylised rather than replicated which has the effect of giving them the period feel without over doing the reality which would otherwise have looked out of place. The score is a foot tapping swing/jazz piece that can grab you at once and get you "in the mood". The pairing of George Peppard and Richard Bradford in the leading cop roles works well and Charles Haigh, late of "Hill Street Blues", is convincing as a "dock rat". Ursula Andress is just right for the aging night club owner. It is not a new plot,we have been there many times before but I enjoyed going there again with this film and I think you will too.
