Big Daddy Wayne,
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

At one point in the movie Lloyd (James Woods) rings a doorbell to an apartment building. One of the names of the residents is Gene Rudolf, which is the name of this film's production designer. 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 »

80's action in pure form. This is in the die hard mold, but less structure or bad guys. I must say before hand that James Woods is my favorite actor. He is amazing. IN this film he delivers the best 1 liner I have ever heard in my entire life. Ever. It's ends the movie in a hurricane of laughter. Laughter in a good way. Laughing at 80's movies. This one may have been made in 90, but it still has the 'pure cop with chip on shoulder' guy. I would also recommend The Hard Way with Michael J Fox. That's also one of James Wood's best performances.
Back to Cop. Watch for the violence. Watch for the great 80's Dialogue. Watch for a plot that while have some serious issues, is still passable and forgivably based on the movies final line. That last line, which I will not discuss her MUST WATCH THIS. Is the best ending to ANY movie I have ever scene (ofcourse in the context of an 80's action/adventure/cop/type movie). Enjoy!
