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

Lesley Ann Warren chain-smokes throughout the movie but she is clearly a non-smoker. She never handles the cigarette like a smoker would, constantly taking puffs that she doesn't inhale, picking up the cigarette and putting it down all the time when a real smoker would hold it. It's just obvious she's not comfortable with the cigarette. See more »
James Woods (always a good sign) stars as a hell-bent LAPD Homicide detective in this gem from the '80's. A serial killer is butchering women and it's up to Woods to track him down and bring him to justice. Problem is that Woods becomes so obsessed with the case, that by the end well...he just doesn't care about bringing in the killer. I have this movie on tape and over the years it has not become dated or soft looking, and the success of LA Confidential, has not affected this movie in the slightest, it is still possibly one of the darkest movies ever. Woods' character is not a man-seeking-redemption, instead he is a man who has looked into the Abyss, and has seen himself looking out. Cop is a great film, that has been over-looked by many people, watch it with Training Day, Internal Affairs, Dark Blue, Romeo Is Bleeding etc. It's a good film. 5/5. Also, the best ending I've ever seen on this type of movie
