Movie Info

Having cut his teeth as a lad in his uncle Perry Henzell's cult hit The Harder They Come (1972), Jamaican filmmaker Chris Browne debuts with this wild thriller about an ass-kicking crime fighter out to battle the bad guys. To combat Kingston's spiraling crime rate, the police ask Capone (Paul Campbell) to free his old neighborhood from a band of villainous gunrunners. Capone is presented with a moral problem when he realizes that his old buddies are now the villains in question. He pauses briefly before killing the thugs, annoying his superiors and wowing audiences with his high-flying hijinks. This film was screened at the 1999 Toronto Film Festival.

Third World Cop shows that Hollywood hackdom isn't that far removed from independent (and foreign) digital video posturing.

...proof that not just the Americans are capable of churning out cliched action flicks.

Reel Film Reviews

A strictly by-the-numbers script prevents Third World Cop from becoming a cult favorite in the tradition of The Harder They Come.
