Movie Info

A group of dirty cops are forced to cover for one another when a new officer joins the force in this police drama. Captain Ellsworth (Dennis Hopper) has to deal with Sam Steele (Marc Singer), an over-eager new cop who decides to move in on a bank robbery, rather than wait for backup as instructed. Thanks to Steele, the robbery quickly turns into a bloodbath. While Ellsworth and his men are working out how to discipline Steele, the new cop runs across some incriminating information -- a lieutenant on the force (Michael Madsen) is the ringleader of a gang of crooked policemen who are involved with a robbery scheme. Steele allows his silence to be bought, but the underhanded doings don't stay quiet for long. L.A.P.D. also features Charles Durning and Steve Bacic.

Audience Reviews for L.A.P.D.: To Protect and to Serve


Some of the hammiest acting and worst fight choreographing available on DVD. Pay close attention to the opening scene and the cop who gets shot next to his squad car...no one even aims at him and yet he is hit by a bullet and dies next to his door! This is a disaster of a movie but it was such a disaster that it was actually enjoyable.
