| It's a fair cop...
All Coppers Are isn't exactly a classic - but it's definitely a product of its time. Produced by 'Carry on' Peter Rogers (with a music score from Gerald Thomas), it's another attempt by them to branch out into something grittier and more realistic - hot on the heels of the movies 'Assault' & 'Revenge' over the previous couple of years.

It has an interesting cast, and lots of good period location filming around Battersea - but in some ways this is the most interesting part of the film. It starts off brightly enough as we get to know the characters, and the story involving a young copper and a petty criminal both vying for the charms of the same girl (played by Julia Foster) sounds promising.

The problem seems to lie with the enforced 'grittiness' - it never really feels authentic, and is more like a parody of working class London at that time. It comes across as a little stilted, and doesn't have the same beating heart at its centre as similar 'kitchen sink' films from previous years (such as 'Alfie'). The story ultimately doesn't seem to reach a satisfying conclusion, send out any particular moral message, or leave any lasting impression.

Having said that, there's still plenty to enjoy if you're a fan of early 70s Brit-movies - it's lovely to see a working Battersea power station in the background of a few scenes, and the cast do their best to liven up quite a thin script.

It's very much a period piece - not the worst of its genre, but far from being the best... it's a fair cop.
