Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The first of two Sidney Lumet movies to feature stellar performances from the kinetic Al Pacino, Serpico was released at a heated moment in American culture and touched a nerve with American audiences. Based on a series of real events, the film targeted institutional corruption in the New York City Police Department and fit in stylistically with the gritty cop dramas of the time, including The French Connection and the Dirty Harry movies. Thematically, it was one of the first pictures since the heyday of film noir to tackle police corruption. Fresh from his breakthrough in The Godfather, Pacino is excellent as the whistle-blowing title character; he received his second Oscar nomination for the role.

    SERPICO Jammed Corruption Where the Sun Didn't Shine!

    I had the opportunity to meet ex-officer Frank Serpico in Europe in the late 1970's. He was living in Holland at the time, and he still had the bullet in his head from the failed attempt by his colleagues to have him murdered. Serpico loved his job, and was dedicated to giving it 100% on a daily basis. While it is indeed true that New York City and the NYPD have come a long, long way, the gritty reality of this movie and the gutsy, brilliant acting by Pacino will remain testimony to historical fact that can never be brushed away. Or forgotten. Terrific movie. Superb acting. Well worth the time to see it.

    PACINO TOUR DE FORCE

    This was the first true Pacino tour de force, even more so than THE GODFATHER. Almost 30 years after its debut, this classic plays fresh and untiring. Sidney Lumet's masterwork is also one of the best cop films ever made. Powerful lead and supporting performances and an articulate screenplay by Waldo Salt and Norman Wexlerare all inclusive in the roll call of greatness.
