It won't be a classic
2 February 2004 | by (Wellington, New Zealand) – See all my reviews

A passable Australian cop actioner brought to you by the Ford Motor Company, let down by limited funds and, in some episodes, direction. The stories were formulaic and enjoyable, while the location filming helped set it apart from American and British fare. The synthesized score is quite good for its time, especially considering the budget—but the sets were turn-of-the-decade horrid. The Aboriginal connection is given a passing nod but is included in each story in a "how odd" manner. Finally, Swiss actor Christian Kohlund aside, most of the cast—including the usually smooth Terence Cooper—gave relatively wooden performances, but it helped establish Cameron Daddo as an Aussie heart-throb. In summary, the earlier Special Squad had far higher production values; Bony pales by comparison in the genre of one-hour, self-contained cop shows.
