      Jelisije J A very good cop movie staring James Woods taking on a serial killer that hunts people who are considered unworthy. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/24 Full Review Jonas S I fully admit that giving this movie 4 stars makes me a morally bad person, but gosh-darn-it-all it is just so watchable. Naturally the police work is written by a complete novice and the plot transitions are utterly jarring, but James Woods is hilarious as an unhinged cop that no doubt partially mirrors his actual personality lol. One for the whole family! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/12/23 Full Review Steve D Definitely entertaining but the writers seem to have problems with women, which damages the film. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/01/23 Full Review Audience Member A solid serial killer movie, set in Los Angeles, that is not done in the noir style. The investigation is straightforward and easily followed. As usual, the whole family dynamic and trauma are forced and irrelevant to the structure of the movie. Would have been far better had that been left out. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Awesome !!! Must see 80s movie! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member 70s movie in the late 80s. More character studies, slow burn suspense, and unglamorous detective work than spectacle, splash, or 'splosions. A must-see for fans of great writing, acting, subtext, and movies for grown-ass adults. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Variety Staff Variety A modestly executed, off-target police drama giving actor James Woods another outlet for his compellingly schizophrenic persona. Mar 26, 2009 Full Review Time Out Slickly made, violent, and (intentionally and unintentionally) funny. Feb 9, 2006 Full Review Janet Maslin New York Times Far and away the best thing about it is Mr. Woods, who served as co-producer and demonstrates a clear understanding of what makes great movie detectives great. Rated: 3/5 May 20, 2003 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com With a deliriously great final moment, Cop is an excellent Los Angeles neo-noir. Fans of the three main James (Harris, Woods, Ellroy) should definitely take note. Rated: 3.5/5 Oct 8, 2020 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins The finale is so unresolved that the film practically insists that the important aspect is the journey, not the outcome. Rated: 6/10 Aug 31, 2020 Full Review TV Guide Woods takes us on a singularly unpleasant ride, but it is always an insightful and fascinating one. Rated: 3.5/4 Sep 11, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews
