Comments about Super Cops, The:

The Super Cops is a classic film from director Gordon Parks of Shaft fame. The film is based on a novel which is just as thrilling as the film. Ron Leibman and David Selby star in it and Leibman is unforgettable. I love this movie and have looked for it for years. Thank WB for finally putting this great film out on DVD.

Comments about Super Cops, The:

The transfer( widescreen all right) looks "good" for this dvd edition. Generally it's a sharp,and solid image,however it's uneven in spots, with some softness and scratches.
The audio track is quite good:clear and clean.
Very watchable print.

RECOMMENDED !

    I had composed a very complete review - then I discovered that "Power Reviews" owns my words after I post them. With that in mind, it'll have to suffice to say that this is a fun, cool little flick, and it looks pretty good.

      Comments about Super Cops, The:

      Fine movie, esp. because it's based on a true story. Raw, not made like a typical Grade-A Hollywood production, but works perfectly, maybe because of that. About the two, incorruptible, so-called "hippie cops" also known as "Batman and Robin," who had over 600 felony arrests in 3-4 years and worked during their off-time.

      That it's a true story makes it far more enjoyable for me. Good cast, several well-known actors in it, fine script, very "real." Not politically correct, but no viewer will be offended by anything; it just doesn't sugar-coat the reality of the NYC streets of the late 1960s/early 1970s.

      I'd watch this again and I recommend it for sure. Esp. if you like cop movies, but even if not, you should like this one.

        Comments about Super Cops, The:

        If you are a New Yorker, you can relate to this, and even if not this is one of the best 70's cop films, based on a true story. This film has it all... action, comedy and more! I rarely give films a 5, but this one is so entertaining it gets just that.

            Gordon Parks' under rated little gem. Great location shots... gets a little campy in some spots. Don't let the theatrical poster fool you! Based on true crime stories.

              This is one of the best, most over-looked and under-rated gems of the 1970's. Great action and lots of fun. It deserves to have a larger audience. Thank you Warner Bros. for giving this film the release it deserves!
