interestingly bleak portrayal of early 90s urban hell UK
23 January 2007 | by (Belarus) – See all my reviews

Yes pretty powerful stuff, entertaining, but not very realistic. But some fine characters and pace, not boring for one second! A black PC from some county force gets sent undercover to London (the Met) to root out some corrupt and racist officers. things go from bad to worse as he digs deeper into the goings on in a super bleak council housing estate, and he encounters some really seedy and corrupt police officers.

A bit stereotyped in its portrayal of all Met officers as corrupt in one way or another, and very cynical view.

He finds that the local CID officer is implicated in murder and they are disposing of bodies in a local crematorium.

It ends with a full scale riot and he has to drive an ambulance through a mob to rescue the corrupt DC from the mob, and then he batters him in the locker room of the police station.

He gets the Queens Police Medal for his efforts and as a cynical final scene when he goes back to visit some black woman he has had an affair with on the estate, we see he has made it into a key ring, some little black boy says "that ain't worth ****" and he says "that ain't half the truth"
