Stacked with big names and the outcome is a competent action-thriller but nothing special.

Cop Land is an interesting little flick from director James Mangold. Focusing on the criminal element within a cop safe haven in New Jersey, the major problem facing Cop Land deals with its plot. Far too typical, it feels like a copCop Land is an interesting little flick from director James Mangold. Focusing on the criminal element within a cop safe haven in New Jersey, the major problem facing Cop Land deals with its plot. Far too typical, it feels like a cop procedural at times and, even worse, it is incredibly meandering in the middle with pointless subplots. That said, it is still a very entertaining film with a great performance from Sylvester Stallone, as well as from the rest of the cast. The narration is unnecessary and the neat/tidy ending is beyond off-putting. However, the acting is superb here and this is the film's major plus side. That aside though, things fall apart quite frequently here and Mangold is oh too willing to tell a typical cop story that would be fitting as an episode of NYPD Blue or one of the many other cop shows out there. That said, Cop Land is not expressly bad and is an entertaining little film that has something to say about cops being above the law. The entertainment value and acting save Cop Land from being a disaster. Expand
