Storyline

The streets of LA are tough, they need a tough cop, 'Jake Cop'. Shot in Newport, South Wales, but set in LA (go figure), 'Cop 9' tells the story of maverick Los Angeles police detective 'Jake Cop' and his attempts to catch the murderer of his long time trusted partner 'Jimmy' by the evil Colombian drug baron 'Sanchez Conchita Gonzalez'. The film opens with a black and white flashback sequence set on the top of one of Newport's, I mean La.'s, highest buildings. A violent shoot-out sees Jimmy plummeting to his death and Sanchez escaping from Jake's wrath, thus setting up the rest of the film for a cliché fest of truly spoof proportions. Written by Darren Jamieson

A film of much pleasure and pain...
5 January 2004 | by cjraveySee all my reviews

...Like being smothered to death by the breasts of a beautiful woman, this movie is both painful and somehow filled with a guilty sense of joy. It's rough and ready, but so were the early works of Peter Jackson. And look where he ended up.

It matters not how this slightly (OK, very) odd collection of film makers made the movie, it's that they did.

Its difficulty to track down has made it a cult classic - good luck finding a copy at your local Blockbusters!
