THE STORY OF EDDIE.
THE BEST EX -COP IN THE BUSINESS!
Eddie Ryan is a rogue cop. He goes his own way! Robert Duvall plays Eddie Ryan, a New York Cop, who loses his badge after a drugs raid on a dance hall goes terribly wrong. But when his former partner has his throat cut out by a gun-smuggling gang of Puerto Ricans, Ryan becomes a one man avenger. Despite the less gentle persuasion he encounters, Ryan ploughs on regardless, saying 'I'm still a cop, badge or no badge!'
This is a riverting thriller that follows the same cracking pace as "The French Connection". Not surprisingly, for it is based on the exploits of the same detective- Eddie Egan who spent 16yrs in the force and was involved in more than 8,000 arrests.
