The Super Cops Reviews
Greenberg and Hantz are two rookie cops who take on drug dealers in their spare time much to the chagrin oftheir superiors who see them as nothing but trouble.
When they are fiannly assingned a police station their captain takes a shine to their biazzare methods and gives then carte blanche to run down a brotherhood of drug dealers praying on the area.
The film works because its help by two great central performances from David Selby and Ron Leibman as the two cops, they really have a natraul rapport and in some parts the film is very very funny.
Its also works beacuse the director is Gordon Parks who directed Shaft and knows how to use the New York loacations to his best advantage.
Funny that it concerns a couple of unconventional cops nicknamed Batman and Robin, given that the screenwriter worked on the `60s series. Also, the presence of bulldog-eyed genre fave Pat Hingle, who would go on to repeatedly play Commissioner Gordon.
Frazier has great inter-racial sexual tension with the also funny Leibman, and her scream session suggests that she could have had a terrific career in horror. Maybe now that this is getting screened at the New Bev in L.A. by Edgar Wright, one hopes that we could eventually see it surface from MGM for an HD broadcast.
