Storyline

Sam Ramirez is a veteran cop in the NYPD with very little to talk to about. On a routine stake out, a drug deal goes bad; and he is forced to put his gun to work. Fellow officers soon learn that Ramirez killed Mob Boss Vince Gallo's brother, in revenge for the death of his partner. Now with a Mob contract on his head, and the police wanting him for murder, Ramirez must navigate the shadows of betrayal between the mob enforcers and the police; in a desperate attempt to stay alive and keep a promise to his dead partner. Compelled to fight, Sam's silence is broken by the sound of his gun. Written by Richard Collier

Cop GONE Bad!!
9 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Every demographic has its fantasy movie, its veritable fairytale. Hipsters have The Big Lebowski. Nerds have Scott Pilgrim vs the World. The Bernie Madoff set even has such an ideal tale in Wall Street.

Silent Sam fulfills a fantasy for a crazily-overlooked contingent of our populace: fat, balding middle-aged guys. And, my, oh my, does it ever hit the mark! Sam Ramirez, true to form is stuck in a living hell. His wife has a terminal illness, which she is only days away from dying from, his partner on the police force is trying to get him to cheat on said wife and, if that wasn't enough, there are a lot of stone cold criminals who would enjoy nothing more than to give him a pair of cement shoes and take him swimming in the Hudson. The criminals get one step closer realizing the cement shoes for Sam when they kill his partner and he begins massacring the mobsters in a bloody rage. Needless to say, lots of people die.
