To tell you the truth, the only reason I wanted to see this film was because it had one of the best chase scenes in 70's cinema. After I watched it, it had more than just a thrilling chase scene but a pulse-pounding score and an unbelievable plot. It also has a great beginning! Yaphet Kotto has the most unforgettable performance as "Crunch" Blackstone, a tough and hard-boiled cop who would rather be beating up his felons than to just plain talk to them. Michael Moriarty stars as Bo Lockley, a man with a truly bad 70's hair-do and a squeeky voice, who accidentally kills a female cop while aiming for a big drug dealer (Tony King as "The Stick"). The female cop is Susan Blakely, beautiful as always. She was playing undercover with the department to crack the drug syndicate as playing his live-in-lover. While Bo fires at "The Stick", the bullet enters the heart of Susan Blakely and the two of them end up running after each other over the marquees and car-rooves of Time Square and they both end up in a stuck elevator in the Saks Fifth Avenue department store with the two of them pointing their guns at each other just waiting to pull the trigger, but they can't. If one of them pulls the trigger, the other can be killed, too! This is the most riveting scene I've ever seen in a movie finale topping the chase scene in "The French Connection" or "Bullitt" with Tony King delivering a "speech" about bad guys and good guys ("... there ain't no bad guys and there ain't no good guys, just two people who disagree..") Now the dpartment is making a whole cover-up to the murder of this female cop. So, if you have nothing else to do on a Friday night, get cozy and watch this groundbreaking film. Read more ›

A true highlite of the film is Elmer Bernstein's excellent musical score as it accents the exciting atmosphere and Milton Katselas' superb direction. And don't forget Hector Elizondo's performance as a harried Captain struggling with not giving the police a bad name. Look for a young Richard Gere in his movie debut as a pimp in Times Square. See this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars SOLID AND SMOOTH 1970's COP DRAMA. Dec 2 2005
By Gregory Saffady - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
I read James Mills novel long before I ever saw the film. When it played in early 1974, it came and went without much notice, being overshadowed that year by (late 1973's) SERPICO and MAGNUM FORCE. Too bad. This is a solid crime drama, written by 2 noteworthy screenwriters, Abby Mann (KOJAK) and Ernest Tidyman (SHAFT)and probably would have gotten raves and Emmey consideration had it been a made for TV pic. REPORT reflects NYPD corruption of the 1970's but the main storyline is men in crisis: a naive cop (Michael Moriarty) and a drug dealer (Tony King in a powerhouse turn)gun barrell to gun barrell in a Saks 5th Ave. elevator; The NYPD brass (played by classic character vets as Dana Elcar, Ed Grover, Hector Elizondo)concocting a high level whitewash; a veteran detective (Yaphet Kotto) who must resort to brutality just to gain nominal acceptance in the precinct. All of it flows smooth against great locations and a first rate Elmer Bernstein score. And yes, look for Richard Gere and William Devane turning in some of their first big screen work.

4.0 out of 5 stars An early role for a young handsome Richard Gere-1974 Sept. 13 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:VHS Tape
Report to the Commissioner is the story of an undercover policeman ( Michael Moriarty ) told to go find a pretty homeless girl on drugs ( Susan Blakely of "The Lords of Flatbush" & "Rich Man,Poor Man" mini-series ) & report back to the commissioner but do nothing more about it.Little does he know that the alleged homeless girl is really an undercover policewoman that he will ruin her cover if he brings her in which is why he is only supposed to report back but does he do only that ? Yaphot Kotto ( KGB,Two if by Sea )as one of the policemen who try to teach Michael Moriarty ( Law & Order )the ropes. Richard Gere has 11 minutes in this movie as a handsome young man with a full head of dark hair and flashing dark eyes.Richard Gere is best known for his roles in :"American Gigalo", "An Officer and a Gentleman" and "Pretty Woman".A young William Devane (Bad News Bears in Breaking Training,Knots Landing)also appears along with Hector Elizondo ( Young Doctors in Love). This drama is told in flashback leading up to a murder & who did it and why and how.
Report to the Commissioner is worth seeing for the impressive young cast and a glimpse at Richard Gere in 1974.

4.0 out of 5 stars The suspense is tactile, building up steadily toward the finale July 9 2011
By DVD Verdict - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Judge David Johnson, DVD Verdict--From the MGM vault comes Report to the Commissioner, a 1975 cop flick starring Michael Moriarty (Law and Order) as Bo Lockley, a feathery, wide-eyed idealistic rookie who finds himself neck-deep in a tough precinct. He takes a load of crap from his fellow officers, as they hit him with the dreaded "H word": hippie.

Lockley struggles to ingratiate himself with the veteran cops--though making friends will prove to be the least of his problems. He gets pulled into an undercover drug sting, allured by the comely female officer, who's trying to take down a powerful drug-running gangster. The three players intersect when Lockley is discovered in the dealer's apartment and a shootout ensues, then an epic footrace and, finally, a standoff in a sweatbox elevator which consumes the final 30 minutes of the film.

For anyone interested in an old-school, hard-edged, politically incorrect police tale; Report to the Commissioner should do nicely. The cars are huge, the racial epithets flow freely, the soundtrack is groovy and the hair is bushy.

MGM's DVD is threadbare, but adequate in its technical merits: a solid 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, 2.0 stereo and no extras.

4.0 out of 5 stars Have seen the film, but not the disc yet May 30 2011
By Chris D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is one of the best crime films from the 70s, on par with The Friends of Eddie Coyle, The French Connection and some of Sidney Lumet's films. But, contrary to Amazon's credits here, Richard Gere is NOT one of the main stars of this film (one of his first, I guess). He has like 5 minutes of screen time as a sleazy pimp. The main stars are Michael Moriarty, Yaphet Kotto, Susan Blakely and Hector Elizondo, amongst others, all of whom do a fine job. I have not seen it on disc yet, so I am not aware of the transfer quality. I recently purchased one of MGM's limited collection, QUEEN OF BLOOD, which looked excellent. However, MGM has had some problems off-and-on with disc quality issues, etc, with this limited edition collection of releases.
