Not up to "Die Hard" standards
7 October 2008 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

First of all, I could tell just by looking at "Top Cop" that this was a low-budget action flick. The impression I got when I saw this was that it was trying too hard to be like a low-budget version of the typical Hollywood action movie. Unfortunately, in this case, it fails, but not miserably. The likes of Bruce Williis & Co. certainly won't be losing any sleep over this one.

I also felt that the Little Rock, Arkansas filming locations worked against the film-makers. They just don't have enough glamour or grit.

Criticisms aside, this film does move alone at a fairly decent pace. The main characters waste no time in getting down to the main action.

I would say that "Top Cop" is passable Friday Night fare.
