A look at Polish fascination with 'made in the USA' action movies.
10 November 2003 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A bleak and graphic action film with some insights into the confusing time of early transition from communism to capitalism in Poland. The director employs an array of wise cracking macho man wilding their guns, thus paying tribute to the 80's American action stars. It's an entertaining, if rather pointless, movie about seasoned cops with communist background trying to make it in the new reality that doesn't seem to be all that different from the past. The central theme pits a young idealistic cop (Cezary Pazura) against an older one (Boguslaw Linda) who breaks all the rules and has a habit of shooting people Rambo style rather than taking them into custody. Eventually they end up friends, but not before spilling hectoliters of blood and exploding some heads. "Psy" was an extremely popular flick in Poland since at the time it came out many people identified with the theme of trying to part with the past and finding oneself in the new world driven by money. Verdict: don't waste your time.
