    Comments about The Super Cops:

    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.

          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 The Super Cops:

              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.

                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!
