  1. Ends up about as exotic as a straight-to-cable potboiler.
  2. 40
    The script recycles clichés that go back to 1937'S "Dead End," the performances are one-note, and the whole thing has the flat, bright look of a TV cop show.
  3. Main lure is what feels like a very authentic visual sense of the nontourist side of Kingston, where the ambience of zinc-walled shacks wallpapered with old newspapers is captured by cinematographer Richard Lannaman.
  4. The acting, camera work and writing are all crude and amateurish, even by the standards of student films.
  5. Reviewed by: Tina Benitez

    Cop is an energetic portrayal of mean-street ghetto life.
  6. A hackneyed police story, rife with clichés, implausibilities, and weak performances.
  7. Reviewed by: Ernest Hardy

    It's little more than a loose assemblage of Hollywood action movie formulas: "Dirty Harry" and assorted cop/buddy flicks are the clear models for the movie.
