No, this film has nothing to do with Ice-T's controversial song.
25 April 2012 | by mazec666See all my reviews

I bought this movie expecting it to be a down-and-dirty grind house-style drive-in flick, and boy my expectations were way too high.

Instead, I got a bare-bones story of two losers on the run for killing two or three police officers after smuggling drugs across the Southwestern desert. Jason Williams (FLESH GORDON) and Bill Osco was well cast in their roles, but I felt they could've had better lines from a dodgy screenplay.

Eventually, all of the hallmarks of exploitation cinema are there: a lisp-voiced ice cream man, bad editing, awkward acting, continuity problems, and some decent make-up effects from future Oscar-winner Rick Baker which would be a step back from ITS ALIVE. All in all, COP KILLERS kind off suffers from those instances that the trailer was much better than the film itself.

Nothing to see here people, please back away from the COP KILLERS as soon as possible okay.
