A string of business robberies have taken place in the city's Wilson Heights neighborhood, all done by the same three crooks. Captain Thaddeus Harris is no longer in the same precinct with a certain group of cops that he doesn't like. That's why Harris is so happy to be in the Wilson Heights precinct. But then The Mayor tells Harris that business in the city is plummeting because of the robberies. Since there appears to be a leak in Harris's precinct, the Governor has sent in a team to stop the Wilson Heights gang. Much to Harris's dismay, the team is led by Commandant Eric Lassard, so Harris knows who the team members are -- exactly the cops that he doesn't like. The team members are Nick Lassard, Moses Hightower, Eugene Tackleberry, Larvell Jones, Debbie Callahan, Laverne Hooks, and Douglas Fackler. The stakes are raised when Commandant Lassard is accused of being the mastermind behind the robberies, and the team must clear his name. Written by
Police Academy 6: City Under Siege (1989) D: Peter Bonerz. Bubba Smith, David Graf, Michael Winslow, Leslie Easterbrook, Marion Ramsey, Lance Kinsey, Matt McCoy, Bruce Mahler, G.W. Bailey. Lame-brained comedy about inept criminals who start a crime wave that befuddles our `beloved' police cadets. Not laugh-out-loud funny at any level; however, Kenneth Mars is funny as the tremendously incompetent mayor. Bailey's misadventures (the highlights of the movie, which isn't saying much) dominate the first half but for some reason are shoved off the screen for much of the 2nd half. All in all, not as bad as everyone says but certainly not worth more than a single viewing (if that). RATING: 4 out of 10. Rated PG for strong language and slapstick violence.
