The Glass Shield
J.J. is a rookie in the Sheriff's Department and the first black officer at that station. Racial tensions run high in the department as some of J.J.'s fellow officers resent his presence. His only real friend is the other new trooper, the first female officer to work there, who also suffers similar discrimination in the otherwise all-white-male work environment. When J.J. becomes increasingly aware of police corruption during the murder trial of Teddy Woods, whom he helped to arrest, he faces difficult decisions and puts himself into grave personal danger in the service of justice.

(kr) wrote: I loved this tv show. Own all the seasons on DVD, but the movie just lacked some creativity for me. I just couldn't get into it.
(mx) wrote: This movie was mind blowing. There were so many twists and turns it was thrilling. The acting was wonderful and the dialogue flowed rather nicely! Definitely worth the watch!!!!!
(ag) wrote: [10/11] Auch wenn ich immer den Tod von Ryan Dunn im Hinterkopf hatte, hab ich mich bei diesem Film mehrfach kaputtgelacht. Die Story ist flach, aber Ryan Dunn ist groartig. Ich glaube, er war ein sehr viel besserer Schauspieler, als die meisten gedacht haben. Bam Margera hat nur eine klitzekleine Nebenrolle und wirkt dort auch eher lcherlich und peinlich als alles andere.

(nl) wrote: Typical Koki Mitani. Quaintly funny movie reminiscent of Hercules Returns (without the dirty jokes). Ken Watanabe has what would now be a cameo but he was less famous at the time. Feels old - but good Japanese comedies usually do.
(us) wrote: Stopped the movie after the second segment. What a boring non-sense
(ru) wrote: It rather meanders along for a good bit of the film. The final 15 minutes are quite strong, though. You can clearly see Eastwood's early interest for Million Dollar Baby in this film.
(us) wrote: One of my all-time favorites.
(nl) wrote: Low budget, barely seen time capsule of a film following the growing success of an all girl punk band led by a very young Diane Lane. Hits every cliche it's supposed to. Fun to watch as a nostalgia piece of its time.
(br) wrote: The laughs come hard in this whacky comedy with the usual quick paced witty dialogue of the Marx Brothers. Groucho is the president of a university who gets Chico and Harpo to play American football, thinking that they are amazing players. Some sequences, which include the football finale and Groucho's rebellious chant 'I'm Against It', are memorable and the film is very entertaining.
