Storyline

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 Todd Baldridge

Those wacky police officers yet again
26 March 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Bad jokes is where I draw the line!' As Hightower says in the 6th adventure of our favorite misfits. This time the story is about a gang (well, there's 3 of them anyway), who keep on robbing juwelry stores and banks along a busroute... but why, and how?! And who is their secret boss?

Oh well, never mind the plot. It's just a filler between the sketches of the heroes and their peculiarities. The strong Hightower, gun crazed Tackleberry, big-breasted Callahan and the rest of them. We all know them from before, and once you've seen one episode, you kinda saw them all.

Weak point of the movie is the absence of Mahoney (the star of the series) and Zed (the funniest). Best scene is when Jones takes on one of the gangmembers in Bruce Lee style. Oh well, I had some laughs, and City Under Siege won't be in my bottom 100. I'd give it 4/10.
