In the 1980s millions of Romanians tuned in to Comrade Detective, a gritty, sexy, communist buddy cop show that has now been digitally remastered and dubbed into English for the first time by a cast featuring the voices of Channing Tatum, Joseph Gordon Levitt, Jenny Slate, Nick Offerman and many more.
After his partner is murdered, Bucharest Detective Gregor Anghel reluctantly teams up with new-to-the-force Detective Joseph Baciu to hunt for the mysterious killer.
When the case hits a dead end, Gregor must revisit an unpleasant part of his past and in turn a larger and more evil capitalist conspiracy is revealed.
The detectives find themselves in a dangerous cat and mouse game with their strongest suspect yet: a sinister priest in a godless country.
Gregor's research into the disturbed American mindset leads him and Joseph to a party at a lecherous movie producer's house where alcohol, girls, and R-rated propaganda films run aplenty.
Hunted by their own police force, the detectives seek unlikely refuge at the American Embassy and discover that Sonya has been kidnapped.
Gregor and Joseph race to find Sonya before she becomes the Reagan mask's final victim, but in order to save her one of them must die.
The greatest Romanian cop show from the 1980s, Comrade Detective, was sadly lost under the ruins of the Berlin Wall. Now, thanks to an unexpected package that Channing Tatum receives from an old friend, the show has finally been rediscovered. Too brilliant to keep to himself, Channing and his friends have digitally remastered and dubbed the original into English for the modern world.
