Product Description

Academy Award winner Sidney Poitier reprises his role as Lt. Virgil Tibbs in this taut drama that exposes the ruthless, high-stakes world of international drug traficking.

From Amazon.co.uk

The Organization was the second and final sequel to 1967's In the Heat of the Night and sees Sidney Poitier's homicide detective Virgil Tibbs called in to investigate the murder of a factory manager. In a lengthy, dialogue-free opening (the film's best sequence), it appears that we are witnessing the culprits in action. However, this group turns out to be a gang of idealistic young vigilantes who knew that the factory was a front for an international drugs cartel--the Organization of the title--and have made off with a haul of heroin secreted there. Suspected of the manager's murder, they meet Tibbs and seek his cooperation. He agrees to help them, pitting himself not only against the Organization but his own police department.

Set in San Franscisco, The Organization invites invidious comparisons with Bullitt: its somewhat cheesy contemporary soundtrack, derived from Miles Davis' Bitches Brew, certainly marks it as a piece of its period, as do the occasionally less-than-convincing action sequences, risible acting and far-fetched plot. Poitier, as ever, lends the film a certain dignity and poise, worthy of better material to work with than this. The film is also notable for providing early showcases for two of Cop TV's most famous Captains: Daniel J Travanti (Hill Street Blues) and Bernie Hamilton (later Captain Dobey in Starsky & Hutch) are both assigned minor roles here.

On the DVD: The Organization comes to disc in an adequate transfer, though still a little grainy. The sole extra is the original trailer. --David Stubbs

I was always interested in what happened to Virgil Tibbs after In The Heat Of The Night and recently caught up with the 2nd in the series They Call Me Mr Tibbs.

Sidney Poitier is still commanding and his character develops the softer side as well as a very clever detective.

Raul Julia shows up that he can do more than Gomes Addams and plays a vital role in Tibbs getting his men.

There are some great red herrings thrown in, which nowadays would be trite but for when this movie was made were ingenious.

The movie stands on it's own even if you haven't seen the previous two. Worth a watch

Just finished watching and with fabulous actors and great storyline you can't go wrong, very intriguing that keeps you glued to the chair not moving, story is about a group of people who take the law into their own hands and get framed for murder now the question is; are they guilty or not I know but I'm not telling, so if you are into the older movies of yesterday when James Bond and Dirty Harry was around with Sidney Poitier than you will ravish this one as well. I rated this an A grade plus as being marvellous to watch from beginning to end. Up to your neck with suspense and action with great ideas. Now it's time for popcorn and relaxation, so what better way than to watch this so what are you waiting for, go on collect the movie as to watch something different for a change. Enjoy!

While 'The Organization' isn't as good as 'In The Heat Of The Night', it's better than 'They Call Me Mr Tibbs' and it's more of a basic cops vs. criminals film than the other two about the war against drugs in San Francisco.
I wouldn't necessarily call these films a trilogy as the only common denominator is Sidney Poitier as Tibbs and you can watch each film as an isolated film without needing to know anything of the other two.
Poitier is great and there's more twists than a corkscrew as he attempts to work out who, why and when after a body is found in an office block.
