Fort Apache, the Bronx (1981)

R 02/06/1981 (US) CrimeDrama 2h 5m

15 minutes from Manhattan there's a place where even the cops fear to tread.


From the sight of a police officer this movie depicts the life in New York's infamous South Bronx. In the center is "Fort Apache", as the officers call their police station, which really seems like an outpost in enemy's country. The story follows officer Murphy, who seems to be a tuff cynic, but in truth he's a moralist with a sense for justice.
