Tom Sharky is a narcotics cop in Atlanta who is demoted to after a botched bust. At the depths of the humble division, while exploring a high-dollar prostitution ring, Sharky stumbles across a mob murder together with government ties, also reacts by building his downtrodden fellow researchers (Sharky’s”system”) to discover the leaders and bring them to justice before they kill all of his witnesses and partners, such as Sharky himself.
That is how Burt Reynolds explains this movie, which appears to be his finest ever. From the book by William Diehl, the narrative is more complicated since the man’s running for president. This is a really long film that feels like three hours rather than 2. The filming downtown Atlanta and also the Peachtree Plaza resort sets the mood just right for your story. Reynolds does not do much laughing at this one when compared with his humor movies. He is quite serious here, particularly in the start of the film because he has demoted to get a dope bust that goes wrong. At times, however, the film plays more like a voyeuristic play compared to a crime movie with Burt attempting to get near the mobster’s woman. Just towards the end of the movie does the violence get cranked up which contributes to the bang bang orgasm. Al Capps manages the score with magical. This film has grown into among the best crime dramas ever. Test it out.
