Keaton good cop good bat
10 June 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Micheal Keaton is one of my favorite actors for a few reasons, Batman, Batman Returns, one good cop , & johnny dangerously kinda gives u the impression that hes cool, calm & collective, but under the surface hes a razor sharp bad-ass. Keaton delivers a heart warming story about a good cop who is faced with putting food on the table for his family and has had enough with bad guys shooting at cops. Keaton does whats right to obtain justice , i mean hey we gave cops a badge to do the right things above the rest of us didn't we? so why waste another tax dollar on your ordinary fat cat cop eating donuts doing Dilly squat, next time just hire........ " one good cop"
