Format: DVD
Detective Harrigan (Stephen Tompkinson) returns to his old neighborhood after working in Hong Kong. It is Jan. 1974. Due to budgets cuts, the police work at reduced pay and numbers. Some of the precincts have been closed. Hooligans control the streets and in Harrigan's neighborhood it is Dunstan (Craig Conway) a man who wears a clown mask when he kills.

Harrigan also deals with a criminal justice system that is more criminal than justice. He has decided to reopen a precinct right in the middle of the worst area, hand selecting a few work mates to come with him. He works outside the law to achieve results, creating problems as well as solving them.

The film is violent with the last 15 minutes going to the extreme. 3 1/2 stars

It's refreshing to see a film that is based on a true story and being so powerful and gripping. Set in the North East in the 70's , it shows the turmoil of the power cuts at a time when the miners strike was happening. Gang fights, violence, authentically portrayed and superbly acted. I just wish there were still Detective Harrigans in the Police now. I recommend this to anyone.

Excellent thriller, Steven Tompkinson is brilliant as the disturbed detective with a past history. It's nice to see Newcastle in a film for once ( must be the first time since Get Carter ).

Very bleak,quite depressing,dark and gritty. Only Brits make such films so well. Violent and gripping,anyone who enjoys uk crime drama such as red riding and earthy films like this is England and dead shoes should lap this up. Definately the best role ive seen Stephen tomkinson play. Excellent film.

Gritty drama set in the seventies Gene Hunt style.

Knowing cops from that era who worked in Newcastle and from tales I've heard this film is right on the mark.

Very entertaining!
