Constable Laurie Gordon transfers from the Drugs Squad to Sydney's elite Police Rescue squad after her partner and lover is killed when a raid goes wrong.

Poor movie of a great TV series
9 February 2002 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

As a big fan of the "Police Rescue" TV series, I waited eagerly for the feature film to be released, and was disappointed when it was only on in Australian cinemas for about a week and I missed it. Years later, having seen it at last, I can see why it tanked at the box office. All the best elements of the TV series have been removed and made it a bland and disappointing effort. Instead of big screen action and suspense, the story mostly concerns the mysterious past of new recruit Lorrie Gordon, and her relationship with Mickey. It's disappointing when a feature film of a TV series can't even match one of the series' more dull episodes. To top it off, the film ends with actor Gary Sweet singing a terrible cover version of "Most People I Know (Think That I'm Crazy)", which Australians will incredulously recall was actually released as a single.

The only thing that makes this film worth seeing is a young Cate Blanchett in her first film role.
