Freddy Heflin (Sylvester Stallone) is a simple, small-town Sheriff who had big dreams of becoming a New York City cop before a heroic deed left him deaf in one ear. Though he saved the life of the woman he loves (Annabella Sciorra), she went on to marry someone else. But everything in Freddy's life is about to change! After he uncovers evidence of a murder, fakes suicide and police tampering, Freddy must choose between the men he idolises, the woman he adores and the law he's sworn to defend.

Frustratingly slight - Cop Land review by AER

Spoiler Alert
11/05/2021

Cop Land could have been a classic. However, it looks like it's had its place in history cancelled by possible reshoots and some brutal editing. This interesting cop drama offers a tantalising prospect by telling the story of the cop the polices the cops at home. Sylvester Stallone places a sad-sack small-town cop who is pressed to act by internal affairs when some serious police corruption comes to light in his neighbourhood. Stallone has rarely been better, matching co-stars Harvey Keitel and Robert De Niro note for note. Ray Liotta's character is a bit pointless and he overacts here slightly as Stallone's only local friend. What this needed was a longer running time to allow the interesting characters some room to breathe, but it looks to me like this got filleted in the editing room. What could have stood head-to-head with Heat, Good Fellas and other 90s classics is a forgotten also-ran due to (suspected) studio interference.

A good try but a frustrating near miss.

Great Underrated Police Thriller - Cop Land review by GI

Spoiler Alert
10/03/2022

Fantastic and gritty police thriller with an absolutely stunning cast led by Sylvester Stallone playing against type. If you think of Stallone in his Rambo/Rocky, pumped up persona then he will surprise you in this cracking film. He plays overweight, partially deaf and kindly town sheriff, Freddie in the small town of Garrison, situated just over the state line from New York City. Most of the town's population are cops from the NYPD who tolerate Freddie as he's low key and doesn't interfere with them. But when Internal Affairs shows up in the guise of Robert De Niro hunting for a missing corrupt cop Freddie is forced to face the reality that his town is a mob funded front for corrupt police officers. This has a great story, some neat action and with support by Ray Liotta, Robert Patrick, Harvey Keitel, Annabella Sciorra and others this is a film that has a suspense driven plot that is very well written and superbly directed. This is great stuff, if you've missed this one then check it out you won't be disappointed.
