Synopsis


Cop Land
The second film from writer/director James Mangold, the corruption drama Cop Land stars Sylvester Stallone as Freddy Heflin, the much-denigrated sheriff of tiny Garrison, NJ, a community which -- thanks to a technicality -- is populated almost entirely by members of the New York City Police Department. When young cop Murray "Superboy" Babitch (Michael Rapaport) becomes embroiled in a controversial shoot-out which leaves two black youths dead, he apparently commits suicide rather than face the wrath of an official investigation. In reality, however, he flees to safety back home in Garrison. In the wake of the controversial events, NYPD Internal Affairs lieutenant Moe Tilden (Robert De Niro) arrives in Garrison to uncover the truth, attempting to enlist Freddy to help watch the watchmen, including Superboy's uncle, veteran cop Ray Donlan (Harvey Keitel); coked-out Gary Figgis (Ray Liotta); and Joey Randone (Peter Berg), the husband of the woman (Annabella Sciorra) Freddy loved and lost. A rich, complex film about redemption, Cop Land's portrayal of Freddy's struggles to prove his worth mirrors Stallone's own return to thoughtful, character-driven drama after years of vacuous action roles. Like Freddy, he faces an uphill battle, fighting for respectability in the face of a superb cast including Janeane Garofalo, Cathy Moriarty, and Paul Calderon. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

    I am a huge fan of Sylvester Stallone and enjoy all of his movies. Cop Land was unlike any other Stallone movie considering the amount of non-muscle weight that he gained to play the role. He isn't playing his typical action hero so it's an opportunity to see his acting skills at work.

    If you have not seen this it is work checking out. GREAT cast and a good story. The story was supposed to be a western but they brought it to New Jersey in the 1990's. Good writing and Stone's best acting since Rocky.

    With an All-Star, Copland is a great movie to watch if you like those good cop versus bad cop themes. Not that much gunplay as you might have thought, but its more about the plot and mystery
