Third World Cop


Time Out says

This Jamaican rehash of Dirty Harry follows maverick crime fighter Capone (Campbell) on a gun-running case in his old Kingston 'hood. He has to rethink his no-nonsense attitude to community policing, however, when it seems his long-time ghetto friend Ratty (Danvers) may be financing his record producing with more than the occasional block party. Low budget and shot on digital video, this first feature is a peppy morality tale which casts a cynical eye over Kingston's ambivalent attachment to the gun. If you can penetrate the patois, ignore the dodgy sexual politics and let the thumping reggae soundtrack do its work, there's an enjoyably rude energy here.
