Exotic, but..., 21 March 2003
Author: Fat Dragon from Tromsø, Norway

While it was fascinating to watch a Jamaican movie for the first time, I must say that there's a lot that could've been better in Third World Cop. Most importantly the acting. While Paul Campbell does a fairly good job, virtually all the rest of the cast is quite amateurish, and I'm not just saying that because I lost about 1/4 of the dialogue because of the Jamaican English... Also, the camera and post-production work is below Hollywood/Western standards. The small budget (or at least I assume this movie has a small budget) and apparent inexperience of much of the behind-camera crew unfortunately shines through quite often. The script is not bad, but we've seen this before. We haven't seen this in a Jamaican setting before, however, which is perhaps the movie's greatest selling point.

To sum up this is not too great a movie per se and you sometimes get the feeling that you're watching some cheap action TV show, but the Jamaican setting and all that implies (when was the last time you heard anything like "we run things, things don't run we" in an American movie soundtrack? :o) ) is somewhat refreshing, which is essentially what makes the movie worth watching.
