Excellent
1 February 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This a great movie about the true story of New York's greatest undercover officer. If you want to see a good undercover cop movie this is it. Bo Dietl fought against all the junkies on the street and when he went in the PD he had to fight off the brass to keep his job.
