Storyline

A pair of corrupt cops spend their illegal cash on an uptown New York City apartment. John Lydon stars as Leo Smith, a disturbed teenager who plays a bizarre game of cat-and-mouse with cop O'Connor ('Harvey Keitel'). He convinces him that he's the notorious cop killer that has been hunting police officers. O'Connor kidnaps him and makes him his permanent guest inside his apartment. Is Smith the corrupt cop killer? Can Harvey get to the bottom of this twisted case before it's too late, or will he get caught up in some twisted game? Written by TheUnbeholden

Strange Film
13 November 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thought this was going to be your typical cop killer film and it completely surprised me as there was cop killing going on, but the film dealt mainly with Lt. Fred O'Connor, ( Harvey Keitel) and his strange behavior. Fred would work in the narcotics department and then after work he went to a very expensive apartment dwelling which he co owned with his partner who was a cop also. Fred also had his regular apartment in the city. One day a young guy named Leo Smith, (John Lydon) approaches Fred and tells him he is the cop killer which Fred does not believe and he does everything he can to get rid of this young man, who is very creepy and sickly looking. There are many twists and turns in this film which will keep you guessing just how it will end and just who is the so-called cop killer. Enjoy.
