Funny as hell, even if its not supposed to be
10 November 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

although the acting and scene set-ups are not of the highest standard, Top Cop is highly entertaining with its drastic storyline and blasts of violence splattered throughout the picture. it would be well recommended watching with a number of beers to appreciate it to its fullest potential. thoroughly enjoyable and full of laughs, even if they weren't the intentions of Mark L. Maness. filled with the usual amount of clichés this is a cop film that really lets it run riot for the majority of the duration. with scenes solely in place just to get to the next, it is fast paced and should hold you attention easily as you wait for the next "dramatic" outburst of blood. enjoy it for what it is and take the plot line with a pinch of salt. what can i say, with such lines as "he's a good cop. he just doesn't play by the book.... in fact he ain't never read it" its got to be a classic.
