Did You Know?


The bloodstains in the shop are not consistent with a shotgun firing buckshot at medium range. There should be far less blood on the walls, and it should be spread in a much wider, less consistent pattern. See more »

The Return of Bernhard Goetz
26 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

How well I remember the story of the subway vigilante Bernhard Goetz who shot four urban youths who were harassing him on the subway. That is the basis for this Law And Order story which guest starred Elliott Gould as the 21st Century Goetz.

Only here Gould is an accountant who has operated in Harlem close to half a century and had a good reputation in the area. Three urban youths decided to hold up his place and were met with a surprise, Gould had a shotgun which was very deadly for two of them.

It wouldn't be Law And Order if there wasn't more involved. There is quite a bit more involved. But look for good performances from Gould as a most reluctant hero and from Jack Carpenter as a most privileged and spoiled trust fund baby type.
