Customer Reviews

Unusual twists at the end make this a great movie.

This is another sort of contradiction, which gets resolved at the very end of the movie.
Tom Brody
Paul Newman shines in this movie as well as the supporting cast.

FORT APACHE, THE BRONX is a 2-hour color movie taking place in the Bronx, one of the seven boroughs of New York City. The Bronx is the borough that is contiguous with, and just to the north of, Manhattan. The film takes place in various locations, including a police station, the street immediately in front of the police station, places of residence of various sleazy characters, on various rooftops, and in a hospital. The characters include Paul Newman (older) and Ken Wahl (younger), who are partners on the police force who share a squad car. Wahl is handsome and has long hair. Often the pair engage in their rounds in street clothes. The characters also include Newman's love interest, Rachel Ticotin, who plays the part of a nurse in the hospital, Edward Asner, who is the police captain, and Pam Grier, who plays a hooker.

VIOLENCE AND OTHER EXTREME SCENES. If you prefer mild-mannered movies, such as ELLA ENCHANTED, or 13 GOING ON 33, then this film might not be the best choice for you. At the beginning, Pam Grier shoots two cops, point-blank, and we see the bulletholes in their heads. Near the beginning, a transvestite goes nuts and threatens to jump off of a building, and he actually does fall off, but Newman and Wahl catch him by his heels just in time. Later on, Pam Grier slashes a john with a razor blade. At a later point, two policemen throw a Puerto Rican off of a rooftop, during a neighborhood riot. Toward the end of the movie, Pam Grier is killed in an apartment, and she is rolled up in the livingroom rug, and tossed in a heap of neighborhood garbage. Aside from the violence, the film contains various stunts, such as a scene near the end when Newman and Wahl rappel down the outside of the building.

n hindsight, FORT APACHE THE BRONX seems in part an after-effect of 1960s and early 70s demonstrations and war protests. As for the wretched South Bronx setting, I spent several hours there one strange night in 1977 and can attest that it then looked like a war zone. Everywhere were condemned partially wrecked buildings, rubbish-filled lots and 55-gallon drum stoves used to dull the night chill for the homeless. Much like the moon, this was an imhospitable place for any living thing.

SYNOPSIS--
The 41st Precinct is known as Fort Apache as it's a haven, an island of refuge for decent citizens against the overwhelming number of monsters and savages prowling their streets. Murphy (Newman) has been at Fort Apache for 14 years, far too long for his mental health. Busted from detective to patrolman for a single lapse in judgement, he still tries to be a good cop.

A new captain (Asner) who knows nothing about the South Bronx, institutes a crime sweep after two rookie officers are murdered in their squad car. The result of 100 dubious arrests is a noisy demonstration at the precinct that Capt. Connolly disperses with tear gas. Riots, arson and general anarchy ensue. Murphy and partner Corelli (Wahl) are sent to a rooftop to stop two men from hurling things at the cops. While there they witness a fellow officer (Aiello) throw an innocent kid off another roof.

Murphy and Corelli must decide if they should keep quiet. Further complications are Murphy's entanglement with a needle-addicted nurse (Ticotin), a fleet-footed burglar in a WWI flyer's hat (Guecia) and the fruitless hunt for an unknown cop killer (Grier).

Parenthetical number preceding title is a 1 to 10 IMDb viewer poll rating.

(6.6) Fort Apache the Bronx (1981) - Paul Newman/Edward Asner/Ken Wahl/Danny Aiello/Rachel Ticotin/Pam Grier/Lance Guecia

Fort Apache, The Bronx was a terrific movie. Too bad that the transfer was terrible. It was obviously done to fit a wide screen movie onto a CRT-TV (the picture has been shrunk), but even considering that, the quality of the print used was well below par. Hopefully this movie will be transferred to Blu-ray, but I'm not holding my breath, keeping in mind what happened to releasing the remaining seasons of Hill Street Blues, which was a series very much in a similar vein.

Hollywood doesn't make 'em like this anymore. Mr. Newman delivered and great performance as usual. A must have for any film collector!
