Synopsis / Plot
Freddy Heflin (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.

Critics' reviews
  • "Cop Land isn't a perfect piece, but it's sober, wise and adult."
  • "Everywhere the camera turns in this tense and volatile drama, it finds enough interest for a truckload of conventional Hollywood fare. Whatever its limitations, Cop Land has talent to burn."
  • "The characters are all over the map, there are too many unclear story threads, our sympathies are confused, and there's an unconvincing showdown in which the story's lovingly developed ambiguities are lost. (...) Rating: ★★ (out of four)."
  • "Mangold has directed Cop Land from his own ardent, audacious script, and despite some draggy, overdeliberate moments, it's the strongest piece of material to come Stallone's way since he invented himself as Rocky 21 years ago. (...) Rating: ★★★ (out of four)."
