This is the third of Virgil Tibbs series based on the role originated in the successful ¨In the heat of the night¨

3º installment based on the role originated in the successful ¨In the heat of the night , this ¨The organization¨(1971) directed by Don Medford , in which Tibbs/Sidney Poitier is out to break up a ring of dope smugglers while helps a bunch of idealistic vigilantes (Ron O'Neal ,Raul Julia , Miyazaki , James Watson , Billy Geen Bush) expose a drug ring run by a powerful ringleader . This outing boasts a nice cast as Barbara McNair , Shree North , Raul Julia , Ron O'Neal , Allan Garfield and Daniel J Travanti . Here we find San Francisco Police Lieutenant Virgil Tibbs (Sidney Poitier) called in to investigate a sinister case . The African-American detective now married (to Barbara McNair) with family pursues baddies and tries to bust a major dope-smuggling operation .

It is a weak sequel to immensely popular ¨In the heat of the night¨ , this third one results to be an inferior follow-up that has action , suspense , drama , thrills , violence and intriguing finale . This packs the further adventures of the role Tibbs/Sidney Poitier created for the film ¨In the heat of the night¨ . The picture turns out to be slow , boring and it has dated one bit . The movie is realized in Television style , though contains some exciting chase sequences , pursuits and surprising ending . Here Sidney Poitier reprises his ordinary character , giving nice acting . Remaining cast is frankly well , such as : Raul Julia , Fred Beir , Billy Green Bush , Ross Hagen , Allen Garfield , Sheree North and special mention for Gerard O' Loughlin . Atmospheric and evocative cinematography by Joseph Biroc . And adequate music score by Gill Melle in his usual style , mixing sounds from Lalo Schifrin , Isaac Hayes and Quincy Jones .

The trilogy starts with the excellent ¨In the heat of the night¨ (1967) that won 5 Oscars , in which Tibbs joins forces with redneck sheriff who grudgingly accepts helps in resolve a bizarre killing , being directed by Norman Jewison , it stars Rod Steiger , Warren Oates , Lee Grant , Anthony James . The second installment is ¨They called me Mister Tibbs¨ (1970) in which Tibbs is called to investigate when a liberal street preacher (Martin Landau) is suspicious the murder a prostitute , as again finding out a killing and attempting to clear his friend , as well . And the third and final appearance , this ¨The Organization¨ is the third and last in Tibbs series .

The motion picture was middlingly directed by Don Medford . This is one of various and professional works of his long career as filmmaker . He directed a lot of TVfilms and episodes as ¨Dinasty¨, ¨Colby¨, ¨Alfred Hitchcock presents¨, ¨Airwolf¨, ¨Trauma center¨, Baretta¨, ¨City of Angels¨, ¨Most wanted¨,FBI¨, ¨Twilight zone¨, and made films as ¨To trap a spy¨and a good as well as violent Western : ¨The hunting party¨. Rating : 5,5 Passable and acceptable . The flick will appeal to Sidney Poitier fans .

Mediocre detective movie

Of the films starring the immortal character Virgil Tibbs, The Organization is the third and final installment. Don't worry, though; Sidney Poitier made a lot of movies where he played an agent or a detective, so you can keep watching him save the day. It's not necessary, but you'll probably want to watch In the Heat of the Night first, and depending on how much you liked it, They Call Me Mister Tibbs. In this one, Sidney is drawn into a radical group who want to expose and destroy "the organization". It doesn't really feel like the first two films, though. It feels a little more like a mediocre detective movie with the normal amount of violence, law-breaking, explosions, and gun-waving.

Believe it or not, my main criticism with the film is one others might not even notice. When Barbara McNair asks her husband what's going on, since she's concerned for his safety after the violence and death threats in the beginning of the film, Sidney's response is to say, "Honey, make me a sandwich," and wink at her. As handsome as he is, if I were his wife, I wouldn't have been happy at his answer. She's married to a famous detective who's been featured in two other films, he's constantly the target of violent groups and criminals, and even if he weren't famous, he's chosen a dangerous profession. It's not unreasonable for her to worry, or for her to ask for more information! When Sidney blew her off, I lost a little respect for him and a little interest in the film as a whole.

Tight supporting cast shows up the star lead

Sidney Poitier walks through role as San Francisco police lieutenant Virgil Tibbs in this second sequel to 1968's "In the Heat of the Night", following "They Call Me Mister Tibbs!" from the previous year. Plot, however, is engrossing and complicated as a multi-racial, anti-drug revolutionary group summons Tibbs to their hideout, hoping to take him into their confidence. They've just pulled off the elaborate robbery of four millions dollars' worth of heroin from the vault of a furniture-making company--unfortunately, they had to kidnap one of the top executives to get the vault open and, after they left, he was murdered. What the revolutionaries were planning to do with the heroin isn't really clear (if it's a shakedown of the drug syndicate they wanted, they'll need a lot more members!). Still, they manage to disrupt everyone involved in the acquisition of the smack, from the suit-and-tie organization in their skyscraper headquarters to their goons on the street to the furniture company's night watchman, who gets shot on his way to the station with Tibbs for questioning. Tibbs agrees to work with the group, which forces him to conceal his knowledge of information from his department as well as from the highly defensive chief of narcotics, whose superior just committed suicide. Poitier isn't convincing interacting with the vigilantes, nor with his superiors, nor with wife Barbara McNair and their two kids; it's a dud performance. The colorful supporting cast of character actors (Raul Julia, Allen Garfield, Bernie Hamilton, Billy "Green" Bush, Dan Travanty, Sheree North, Ron O'Neal, Maxwell Gail Jr.) nearly makes up for the star's lethargy, and the San Francisco locations are an asset. Director Don Medford keeps the scenario busy, but it's activity without a lot of gripping action, the chases and shoot-outs coming right off an assembly-line. ** from ****
