Sono Art-World Wide, an enterprising minor-league studio of the early talkie era, did its best to seek out subject matter that would guarantee a respectable box-office showing. Air Police has an alluring title and some first-class aerial photography, but otherwise is a standard cops-and-robbers caper. Kenneth Harlan plays a flying cop whose partner is murdered by smugglers. A showdown high above the clouds is a foregone conclusion, though most of the skullduggery is committed on terra firma by frog-faced gang boss Rychard Cramer. Second-echelon silent film leading lady is Kenneth Harlan's love interest.
