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

Originally filmed under the book's title 'Blood on the Moon', Atlantic, the studio behind the picture, decided to re-title the film "Cop" because they were concerned that people would think it was a slasher movie. The new title also suited Atlantic's market campaign, which tried to sell the film as an action/thriller similar to Dirty Harry. See more »
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 »

There are times that this feels like a TV Movie. In fact, if it were not for the presence of James Woods that is all this would be, a good TV movie. As it is, Woods acts his socks off without overdoing it. He manages to pull this up to a much higher standard, very watchable stuff, in fact. There is nothing really ground shaking in the script and, to be truthful, it kind of gets a bit lost at a couple of points. Like others have pointed out, the dark twisted aspect of the original book do not quite come across to the screen, but nevertheless is a very passable transition. In summary, not one to watch for your main film on a Saturday night, but certainly worth a look on any other night.
