'Cop Land' holds up as a pretty good little thriller, a Sidney Lumet movie in a Martin Scorsese movie's clothing.
September 13, 2012
Top acting honors go to Ray Liotta as Gary Figgis, a cokehead cop who just might be Freddy's only friend.

not your traditional action flick, nor your traditional cop flick. It has elements of each, all wrapped up in a new type of story that drips in realism and gray characters.

Mangold certainly knew what he was doing when he cast Keitel and De Niro.

April 9, 2008
Cop Land shares its leading man's slow-wittedness, but also his likability.
April 9, 2008
A low-key tale of corrupt cops that recalls the gritty police procedurals of the 70s.
April 9, 2008
It sizzles toward an explosive and satisfying climax in which everything -- Stallone included -- fully bursts into life.

April 9, 2008
Although too simplistic in its good-guys/bad-guys approach to morally and emotionally ambiguous material, Cop Land emerges as an absorbing and dramatic yarn about exposing the evil doings of some of New York's finest.
April 9, 2008
A solidly entertaining drama that stays true to the independent spirit of its filmmakers
April 9, 2008
At its heart, the movie has a good story to tell: the lumbering oaf who's not nearly as stupid and not nearly as gutless as all the hot dogs from the big city think.
April 9, 2008
The movie's no roller-coaster ride, but there isn't a boring moment either.
July 30, 2007
At times, it's like three episodes of NYPD Blue jammed together and whittled down to feature length.

April 9, 2005
It's an interesting parable/western and, perhaps, a start for Stallone's new career.

January 2, 2005
In the early '70s, people made movies like Cop Land all the time; Stallone is a reason they don't make them so often anymore. Maybethis is his way of making it up to us.

Stallone more than holds his own against an all-star ensemble cast; indeed, he soundly anchors the picture.

It's a pleasure -- a relief, even -- to see that Sylvester Stallone can still act.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
September 10, 2002
Overall, try as it might, this isn't as good as a Scorsese film, but it's still a compelling picture.
