A cab driver finds himself the hostage of an engaging contract killer as he makes his rounds from hit to hit during one night in Los Angeles. He must find a way to save both himself and one last victim.
Sometime in the 1970's, police officers from New York wanted a safe haven to live, away from the dangers of the streets of New York, this is when they established a "Cop Land" in the small New Jersey town of Garrison.

Recently there have been a dark omen surrounding the NYPD, and Freddy is now investigating on this case, then Internal Affairs officer Mo Tilden is also on the case and asks Freddy for help, but Freddy could not. Now Freddy suspects that a New York cop named Ray Donlan might be one of the many cops who is corrupted by the mob and other criminals. Now, Freddy must find a cop who is nicknamed "Superboy" who can testify against Donlan and protect him, before Donlan finds Superboy and kills him. Written by
The sandwich scene in Robert De Niro's office was Stallone's first day shooting. The sandwiches, which were an afterthought for the actors' lunch, were improvised into the scene by De Niro. See more »
When Moe Tilden first meets the crooked cops in the New Jersey coffee shop, you can see through the window that it's raining outside, with water dripping from the eaves of the building. When he walks outside to his car, not only is it not raining but the streets are dry. See more »
Every precinct has its cop bar - a private club - all blue. For the 3-7 it was the Four Aces, just across the river.

I didn't really know what to expect from "Cop Land".
You have some expectations when actors like Sylvester Stallone, Robert De Niro and Harvey Keitel star in this movie - but could Stallone be the quiet Sheriff? The answer is yes, Stallone did well in this movie, he showed that he isn't just an action star, he is a great actor.
"Cop Land" had a nice story, but I think it had more potential. The movie could have lasted for 20-30 minutes more. It was a nice movie anyway, I will rate it 7/10.
