Strike back at this one
8 February 2018 | by videorama-759-859391See all my reviews

This t.v. movie or half movie seemed to have walked in from nowhere, the first scene sharing the same location as the last one. If this pilot became a t.v show, it would be very short lived, despite the trio of our three likeable cops, out to solve a murder involving Italian mafia and drugs, where a teen boy buys it at the start. It's the first time I've heard the expression, 'white milk' describe an all too known illicit drug, our three undercover hero's out to bust the main culprit (Joe Spinelli). This weak t.v. movie, is just an unexceptional time passer, if only for the small savings of Gorman, who I wish I could see much more hell of in his filmography. Blakely was solid as the straighter than straight black cop, who plays it right down the line, while the warm welcome surprise was that of a younger Gere who was impressively good as a young diligent state trooper, with trying characteristics, the kind that always apologizes while also being the 'slightly cocky and 'think they know everything type'. Strike Force ultimately fails to satisfy with no real surprises or intensity, it's just there to view and pass time, where being made in 1975 has nothing to do with it. It's just a weak washy film. Talking about Gere being a trooper, I think our three mains are troopers for doing this unimpressive cop drama. If it had become a show, I would of liked it in the fact, of seeing our three likeable leads carry on their stuff as they make a great team.
