A realistic, colorful and always interesting study of a veteran police office (Newman) and his a rookie partner (Wahl) patrolling the rough streets of the South Bronx. Asner is memorable as their gung-ho new commander.
| Original Score: 8/10
Overlooked hard-boiled cop story.
| Original Score: 4/5
Fort Apache, the Bronx portrays the men in blue as neither Galahads nor roughnecks but as ordinary human beings who try to cope in a pressure-cooker.
A cliched but thoroughly watchable cop movie, thanks to Newman's acting chops.
