Blu-Ray News #82: The New Centurions (1972).


Directed by Richard Fleischer
Starring George C. Scott, Stacy Keach, Scott Wilson, Rosalind Cash, Erik Estrada, Clifton James

Richard Fleischer’s The New Centurions (1972) is a tough look at the lives of three rookie cops in L.A. — Stacy Keach, Scott Wilson and Erik Estrada — and what the job does to their personal lives. We also get to know the veteran cops who show these rookies the ropes — and try to help them stay alive.


What has always struck me about The New Centurions is how solid the acting is. Given the cast, what would you expect?

This is certainly not Feel Good Hit Of The Year material, folks. But it’s very good and it’s coming to Blu-Ray from Carlotta FIlms out of France.

    Good news about THE NEW CENTURIONS-its part of a 3 film
    Fleischer set from Carlotta-the other two being 10 RILLINGTON PLACE
    and SEE NO EVIL-the former already out on Twilight Time and soon
    to be released by Powerhouse in the UK (on Blu) All three films can be
    purchased separately. Carlotta normally have excellent picture quality
    and no forced subs,
    Sidonis (grrr!) have a fave guilty pleasure of mine THE LONG SHIPS
    due on Blu plus Fleischer’s BARABBAS one of the best Sixties epics-
    when will Sidonis stop those wretched forced subs on their Blu Ray’s.
    There are a couple of other Keach films never released even on DVD,
    THE GRAVY TRAIN-Keach,and Frederic Forrest as West Virginia
    brothers on a crime spree. This film a Tarantno fave has Keach,
    Forrest and Margot Kidder in their prime at the top of their game.
    Another Keach classic on the missing list is Burt Kennedy’s THE KILLER


  2. The Gravy Train is very high up on my Want List.
