Odd TravelTalks Short
2 May 2014 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

One of the stranger James Fitzpatrick TravelTalks shorts I've seen. This one visits Mexico, a frequent stop for the series. But this time instead of focusing on a particular city or famous landmarks, it highlights the Mexican police. To make it even stranger, it doesn't talk about their crime-fighting techniques. Instead it discusses their talents like motorcycle stunts and trick shooting. So it's sort of a variety show for the Mexican police force. The cynic in me wonders if this short wasn't done so Mr. Fitzpatrick could get out of a traffic ticket or something. Regardless of the reason, it's an oddly fascinating subject. Nice color footage of the local scenery and people, as this series was always good for. Love the snazzy red patrol cars and motorcycles.
