Irene Wagner, the wife of prominent scientist Albert Wagner, finds herself blackmailed about her affair by her lover's jealous ex-girlfriend. The plot, an experiment in causing fear, drives her into a rage.
Lloyd Hopkins, a hard-boiled American police detective is on the trail of a mass murderer who is victimizing women in Los Angeles. The pursuit leads him through a world that has become his own natural habitat - a nasty world of crime, drugs, prostitution and male hustlers where "innocence kills" and continued exposure corrupts. Paradoxically, it's also a world of love, secret admirers, romantic feminist poets and modern chivalry. And for the viewer, it's the background for an exciting, suspense movie. Written by

When Detective Hopkins is looking over the newspaper classifieds in the victim's apartment (around the ninth minute) the first advert circled in red is the last column of the newspaper, the second advert circled in red in the second newspaper is in the second last column to the right. In the very next scene however the circled advert is again in the last column of the newspaper even though the detective was clearly seen placing the first newspaper on the desk. See more »
Why can't they fly, Dutch? Why can't they fly like us?
No wings, my friend. Nothing they do by themselves is much fun, they gotta have a man or it doesn't matter.
Penny's gonna fly. The wings are there, and they're big.
You better hope the tits are there, and they're big too. She'll get farther in this world with a pair of those.

James Woods is our hardboiled detective as he navigates the dark web of a mass murderer. Woods' wife and child have recently left him, and he is under investigation at the police department. He is unwilling to give up the case, and no one is going to stop him.
"Cop" displays Film Noir disillusionment and it's bleakest and the dark ending (not going to be spoil it) only adds to the Noir-iness. In the 1980's Film Noirs started to come out again, beginning with remakes like "D.O.A.", and new originals like "To Live and Die in LA." In this revival, "Cop" is a crown jewel, a wonderfully mysterious tale of man willing to risk and loose everything to find a killer.
As a Noir enthusiast, I highly recommend this film. It may be overacted at times, and the detective may seem a little to gung ho to be believable. But, Woods'es excellent performance is able to hold the film together. It is a thriller from start to end, and overall a very enjoyable film. Watch it, trust me.
