Amazing Film... Keaton is outstanding!
1 October 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

'One Good Cop' is an amazing film in all respects. Written & Directed by Heywood Gould, 'One Good Cop' opens beautifully & ends the same.

A underrated film, it deserved to be 1991's Top Grossing film. Apart from being an amazing film, one gets to see our-now-legend Michael Keaton in an outstanding performance. It's sad to know that people watch a film like 'Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen' more than watching an honest attempt like this which released way back, and didn't get it's due.

The drama, the action, the emotional quotient... everything has been balanced beautifully. A complete film!

'One Good Cop' is not to be missed. An outstanding film! Two Thumbs Up!
