4 morons pretend to be super cops
22 March 2015 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Yes, technically it's a well done show, good camera work, production value and all. On the level of character/story though it's very different. We have 4 'rogue' cops from Paris who out of unknown reason seem to be an 'elite' group of the French Police but really are just utterly clueless and super violent and brainless morons. Their grasp on vocabulary is covered with the words 'putting' and 'merde'.

What keeps them not getting fired on day 2 seems to be a French miracle. Their inner life is so empty one wonders if they aren't one of those new zombie robot squads. The 'reality' they depict is nonexistent.

And still those characters are essentially portrayed as 'heroes' - which is most annoying. I see this show a perfect fit for adolescents craving lots of beer and dreaming of one day also becoming member of this elite 'cops'.

In one word: awful. There's much better fare to be found in France, like Engrenage, Un Village Francais, or Les Revenants. Braquo is a colossal fail.
