This is a good movie for police recruits to watch.


This is a good movie for police recruits to watch. Tell them whatever you do, just do the opposite of what you see in the movie and you will be all right!

I think you're being a little too hard. I've been a police officer for fifteen years (2000-Present) and you're right this movie is pure Hollywood, but it's very good Hollywood. It isn't a documentary and it was made when audiences didn't expect hyper-realism. The whole thing reminds me of a really well done made for television movie (from the time period) right down to the opening credits and the score. It's a movie.
