End of Watch / Officer Down

Two new releases shine a light on the shield.


Thriller

Rod Lott
I'm a sucker for a good cop movie, and End of Watch is a great one. Had I seen it before its home-video release, it would have made my 2012 year-end list.

The Protector / Crime Story

Jackie Chan is twice the man.


Action

Rod Lott
Who in the hell hires Jackie Chan and then tells him not to kick a lot? The Exterminator director James Glickenhaus, that’s who.

The Sweeney

Get nicked.


Action

Rod Lott
Not only is The Sweeney one of the best TV-to-film adaptations in history, but quite possibly the best adaptation of a TV series you’ve never heard of ... unless you’re British.

Manborg

Part man. Part machine. All really funny.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Following its hilarious Father’s Day, the ’80s-obsessed Canadian quintet known as Astron-6 unleashes another inspired homage/parody in Manborg. Instead of vengeance, sci-fi is the skewered genre of choice. And Manborg is indeed choice.

Cop it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

One might think that after 123 years, the Oklahoma City Police Department would have a lot of history to share. It does! Now on display from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at City Hall, 200 N. Walker, is just that, with photos, documents and historical items, including a bomb suit and robot from the 1980s, an armored vest from the 1930s and a saddle used by the Mounted Patrol division. Admission is free. Call 297-2391.

Daily, ongoing
