Freddy Heflin is the sheriff of a place everyone calls “Cop Land” — a small and seemingly peaceful town populated by the big city police officers he’s long admired. Yet something ugly is taking place behind the town’s peaceful facade. And when Freddy uncovers a massive, deadly conspiracy among these local residents, he is forced to take action and make a dangerous choice between protecting his idols and upholding the law.
- Cop Land
Sheriff Freddy Heflin (Stallone) is an ordinary officer who spends his boring life in the town where he lives. Time passes so slow in a quiet little town of “Cop Land”. This bulky sheriff does nothing other than controlling traffic and surrendering to his pinball addiction. When a misfire broke out in town, Freddy jumped into it with the help of Lt. Moe Tilden (Robert De Niro). This seems like a big leap of the career-stuck sheriff. Two thumbs of for Stallone for giving up his all muscles body, something is well-maintained for years and also his choice for accepting a role much different from his usual heroic/action ones. Stallone did much better in his role when compared to his acting in Get Carter or D-Tox
Weird that it took me so long to watch given the cast. Look, _Cop Land_ isn't the best movie in the filmography of anybody involved, but it was a worthwhile watch, and a nice way to break up the crap horror we've been on a bender of lately. _Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go_.
