Trivia

Although the title is based on the expression 'all coppers are cunts-tables,' to appease the UK censors and get a lower rating the film repeatedly changes it to the pun-less "all coppers are bastards." See more »

passable but nothing more
1 April 1999 | by (Melbourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

This has the makings of a good film but never quite delivers. it has a good visual sense with some nice camera work and solid location shooting but the story has too many faults.

The plot concerns a working-class criminal and a married cop going after the same girl. The cop and the crim get along well at first but that changes after they know what each other does for a living and it ends in a final confrontation that ends tragically.

The basic fault with the plot is that it's too contrived and relies on far too many coincidences of the main characters running into each other to keep the plotline going. It seems that whenever the cop is on his beat he always seems to run into the criminal and the girl.

Also, the central character is the cop but because the actor playing him fails to inject much charisma into the role the crim comes off as the much more sympathetic and interesting (and better acted) character.

Still, all in all not a bad film.
