It’s a comedy blitz as South African cinema pays homage to movies such as Bad Boys, Rush Hour, Starsky & Hutch, and other iconic buddy cop movies, in ‘Blitz Patrollie’. Comedy greats David Kau, in his debut on the big screen, and Joey Rasdien (Material), are humbling partners fighting crime in this action packed adventure complete with shoot-outs, car chases,drug lords, hair raising stunts and a “brick sniper” running amok.
Rummy Augustine (Rasdien) and his partner Ace Dikolobe (Kau), are two police officers who have the misfortune of being stationed at one of the most chaotic police station in Johannesburg. Other than fighting crime Rummy is troubled with trying to start a family and lives with his violent and abusive mother-in-law and lazy brother in law who sponges on him and just won’t move out.
