Synopsis:
In what many have described as the French equivalent of 'Heat', two of France's heavyweights, Gerard Depardieu and Daniel Auteuil star as two detectives. Once close friends, but now bitter rivals, they strive to claim the coveted position of Chief of Police by whatever means necessary... A gang of armed robbers have committed seven bloody robberies in Paris within the space of year. Klein (Depardieu) and Vrinks (Auteuil) are heading up different departments of the Police force and are told that whoever stops the gang will be awarded the title of Chief of Police.
The competition between them becomes increasingly ruthless, blurring the lines of morality until there is no difference between the police and the criminals they chase.

Breathtaking - 36 review by JD

Spoiler Alert
15/04/2012

The hatred between these two detectives is awesomely acted, it is very delicately poised and utterly involving. Considering the drama of much of the plot their incredibly tense relationship remains constant and exhausting. The climax of the film (not to spoil it too much) is almost a relief. Acting doesn't get better than this.

Not my genre - 36 review by BE

Spoiler Alert

I got completely lost with the storyline and judging by the reviews of others, obviously didn't appreciate the movie or the acting. I hired the movie because I am a great fan of Gerard Depardieu but found it to be very dark, violent in the extreme extremel and beyond my comprehension. I have given it three stars regardless as its failure to engage me possibly rests with myself.

Kid’s stuff - 36 review by JG

Spoiler Alert
16/02/2018

This is a pretty dumb cop film with every move signposted and lashing of sentimentality. It has been heralded as a French ‘Heat’ which is absurd. For a start the later had an excellent director and script.
