"You guys disgust me!"

Elliott Gould and Robert Blake are a surprisingly affable team in this blood-spattered crime-flick written and directed by Peter Hyams, which stays loose and shaggy and doesn't wrap itself up too much in seriousness or pretensions (until the finale). Two Los Angeles vice cops, tired of seeing their prize busts going unrewarded by a police commissioner who is on the take from a sleazy crime czar, use their down-time to shake up the kingpin, whom they are sure is about to pull off a major drug exchange. The leads are a lot of fun, particularly Gould, and Hyams keeps the camera moving-moving-moving until you feel convinced he must have his cinematographer strapped to the back of a motorcycle. There are the usual cheap shots, titillation asides, a blatantly moronic judge, and the proverbial exasperated sergeant who keeps saying things like, "My ass will be in a sling!" Hyams is really tough on Los Angeles, and one might come away from the picture asking: if the police force were so corrupt, wouldn't that be a bigger story than the one we're getting? Still, the combination of good performances, an interesting script, a goofy undermining, and a down-and-dirty scenario makes the movie a rowdy ride with exciting sequences. **1/2 from ****

Trapper John & Baretta as urban vice cops (an underrated classic)

this is a cool movie. neglected to say the least. maybe nowadays in this politically correct universe it would be tagged HOMOPHOBIC, only because the movie uses terms that cops, especially vice, use on the streets. but that's like getting on MEAN STREETS for saying the N word about African Americans and then calling it a racist movie - it's the lingo, folks - no sugarcoating. but i dont know why this movie is so tuff to find on VHS and isnt even close to being on DVD. it's a cool movie with a lot of action, and personally i liked it better than FRENCH CONNECTION. it has a great foot chase scene where theyre running and shooting guns in an indoor market. and also a classic funny ten minutes where the two vice cops are sent to stake out a derelict restroom, looking for perverts or rather, waiting for them. Elliot Gould is great and is just like his Trapper John character, or Philip Marlowe from LONG GOODBYE; and Robert Blake is the exact replica of the character that'd make and break him - Baretta, with the unlit dangling cigarette and all. Blake is fitting as the second banana and is indeed second to Gould's lead character because... well... Gould was a bigger actor at the time, I guess. Alan Garfield is great and cheesy as the bad drug dealer and also, keep an eye out for Sig Haig (jackie brown) as his number one thug.
