The Reviews for Cop Land (1997) 1080p

An avant grade role for Mr. StalloneReviewed bybreakdownthatfilm-blogspot-comVote: 9/10

It is rare for people to step out of their comfort bubble. Even actors, for as successful as they are, they too suffer from breaking what they are comfortable at performing in. Here's a film that not every Stallone fan might see everyday - similarly to that of The Truman Show (1998) a year later with Jim Carrey. This particular role is so far in left field for Sylvester Stallone that it almost seems like the wrong choice. When in fact, it proves that Stallone by far can still back a punch even when he's not pulling a trigger every five minutes.

Stallone plays Freddy Heflin, the Sheriff of a small town in New Jersey called Garrison. All seems fine and well with the town and Freddy himself until an incident occurs on the George Washington bridge that connects the New York and New Jersey police departments. After the problems arise, Freddy is challenged on his thoughts and beliefs that he had never considered before. This is where things get interesting and dangerous simultaneously. As time goes on, Heflin begins to dig and as he digs, he discovers that everything is not as he thought.

The writing is something to behold here. Directed and written by James Mangold, the same man behind Walk the Line (2005), 3:10 to Yuma (2007) and most recently The Wolverine (2013), created a screenplay that not only defies the normal typecasts that most actors have, but also adds depth to the main character of Freddy Helfin. If it weren't for any of the background given to Stallone's character, the audience would have no idea about Heflin's past and why he acts the way he is in the movie. When it is revealed though, it's a heartfelt story that contains a lot of emotion. Even more interesting is how little Stallone uses a gun. Not only is Stallone overweight but he barely even raises his voice - which is rare. The character of Heflin is very self contained and covers it up well.

Also playing a role that is out his usual casting role is Ray Liotta. For anyone who's not familiar, Liotta frequently plays scumbags and creeps. A good example of this is from Unlawful Entry (1992) and a bad example is from Turbulence (1997). But what wasn't seen coming was Liotta playing not only a supporting character but also a tactical one. There is one scene where he explains to Stallone's character how he should take on convicted felons and the advice he gives is extremely noteworthy. Liotta, you should be doing this more often my friend. Along with him are Harvey Keitel, Robert De Niro, future director Peter Berg, Robert Patrick, Noah Emmerich from The Truman Show (1998) (how coincidental!), and just for laughs Mr. RoboCop 3 (1993) himself, Robert John Burke. All the actors, even the ones not mentioned do a fine job.

What also makes this movie a fish out of water role for Sylvester Stallone is how human the story makes him look. This isn't a movie where Stallone mows down villains with a rapid-fire gun without taking any hits. Stallone's character is flawed and limited, humanizing him for the entire running time. That's something serious. Adding to the realism of the story is the cinematography where most scenes take place in the suburbs or along the shore outside the city. Finally what helps complete this feeling is Howard Shore's score to the film. It isn't the strongest of film music but it does contain some very simple themes that help bring out the emotion of various scenes. Overall a very strong drama / thriller.

It's not your regular Stallone shoot 'em up and that's fine. The entire cast in the movie performs great. The music isn't complex but is well supported by a strong cast and character driven story.

This movie was always going to be interesting because it involves somany sides to the one story. There is an excellent balance establishedbetween all the factions involved in the case of a missing/dead policeofficer.

The characters for this sort of movie are very original, and theirflaws are revealed just as much, if not more so than their strengths.This has to be Sylvester Stallone's career highlight, and goes to showthat his talents are not necessarily best for action movies. And DeNiro's understated but excellently played "Moe Tilden" leaves youwishing he was featured more. The scenes between these two charactersare worth the viewing alone. Harvey Keitel as well, plays an excellentcop/quasi-crime boss.

It's a little soppy at times but overall a stand-out in it's genre.

A superb performance by SlyReviewed bymovieman_kevVote: 8/10

Slightly deaf soft spoken Freddy Heflin (Sylvester Stallone) is a sheriff of the New Jersey town of Garrison, that transient New York cops also live in. He always wanted to be a cop and has a tad of envy for them, but because of his disability he could never pass the exam. Robert De Niro is Lt. Mo Tilden, an Internal Affairs investigator. His current investigation leads him to Heflin's small town. This was a pretty damn good cop drama. And it should have been the one that put Sly back on the map, as his performance here is golden, but it was not to be as he choose to follow this with such turkeys as "Driven", the horribly "Get Carter" remake, and the unfunny "Avenging Angelo", which is a shame as I really like the guy. Same with writer/director James Marigold, this film showed he had talent to spare, and as an adverse effect I found myself disappointed to all the films that he's made prior. It's a damn shame that this picture didn't even pick up an Oscar nomination as it's a more fully realized and better film than the same year's "L.A. Confidential"

My Grade: B+

DVD Extras: Commentary with director/writer James Mangold, producer Cathy Konrad, and actors Sylvester Stallone and Robert Patrick; 2 deleted scenes with optional commentary by the same people as the main commentary; "Shootout" storyboard sequence; "Cop Land: The Making of an Urban Western" featurette; and a compilation Trailer for Miramax
