Reviews

James Wood plays a cop who finds that his personal life is putting a lot of strain on his work, and vice-versa, in this violent thriller. The tension begins to come out in his work after his wife leaves him, taking their seven-year-old daughter with her. Meanwhile, he trails a serial killer who seems to prey on women connected to a feminist bookshop.

Format: DVD
I've just watched this movie again having not seen it for at least 15 years. I wasn't dissapointed. Its a cracking film which relies on a good story by James Ellroy (L.A. Confidential was also by him), quality acting, and the screen presence of James Woods to keep you riveted to the screen. Unlike most modern films this is not full of CGI effects, car chases and explosions.

Woods plays a Sergeant in the LAPD who believes he is on the trail of a serial killer. Rather like Eastwoods Harry Callaghan Wood's character is a maverick who will stop at nothing to get his man. This is an 18 certificate and there is a lot of implied sexual violence and quite a lot of fake blood on display. This all done quite subtley though and the gory scenes are mostly brief.

I watched this film and The Bourne Ultimatum back to back. Whilst their film-making styles are completly different, and Cop was filmed 20 years ago, it certainly merits comparison with the latter film. I have no hestitation in recommending the film.

...which relies more on great acting (James Woods), brilliant directing by James B. Harris and a good story (James Ellroy) than on long shoot-outs and bloody on-screen murders. In fact all killings occur off-screen. There are no prolonged action scenes, explosions or chases, no FX overkill.
The story is gripping and suspenseful, you can easily identify with the main character. It's a plain, criminally underrated handmade thriller/drama fully derserving a 5 star rating. Woods easily delivers the best performance ever.

This is a HUGELY underrated movie that, unfortunately, not many have heard about. If you are a fan of James Woods then this is a must! The acting is very professional and Woods delivers his hidden humour when cursing as in many of his movies, hehe!
This is a highly reccomended cop thriller that strays from the 'follow orders' style of movie as Woods' character goes his own way. 10/10 for me!

I first saw this film many years ago on vhs tape (oh, my, remember that everyone?) and I have always been a fan of James Woods, but this cracker of a serial killer thriller turned out to be better and even more clever than I could ever have hoped for.
These are the ingredients for a fantastic serial killer thriller, or indeed any thriller of its kind, superb cast, headed by the sheer mesmerizing on screen presence of Woods, a great storyline, brilliant scripting with razor sharp dialogue and great sax/synthesizer music too. Put all that together and you get one of the most underrated (aren't they all?!) thrillers of the 80s. It really is a pity that this film hasn't enjoyed a much larger following and hardly even anyone knows about it, but I am sure it has millions of fans out there, me being one.
This is an outstanding film noir that deserves attention and if you like thrillers and/or are a fan of Woods, then do yourself a favour and get this, stick it on your player, sit back with some good food and treat yourself to one of the best mystery/serial killer thrillers you are ever likely to see. And another word of advice, if you'll be patient, if you are a fan of Woods too, check out Best Seller. Another cracker.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Innocence kills. I see it every day.
Cop is directed by James B. Harris, who also adapts the screenplay from the novel Blood on the Moon written by James Ellroy. It stars James Woods, Lesley Ann Warren, Charles Durning, Charles Haid and Raymond J. Barry. Music is by Michel Colombier and cinematography by Steve Dubin.

LAPD detective Lloyd Hopkins (Woods) is investigating the gruesome murder of a woman and comes to believe it is the work of a serial killer whose crimes stretch back for 15 years. But with his superiors troubled by his methods of working and his home life crumbling apart by the day, Hopkins is short of support professionally and emotionally. Working alone as a rogue cop, Hopkins will stop at nothing to prove his theory right and nail the killer in the process.

All of these little girls have one thing in common-disillusionment.

Met with much indifference by critics upon its release, and chided by the Ellroy purists, Cop is a film that may be a flawed take on the source material, but none the less it's one that remains a compelling neo-noir dripping with cynicism, sleaze and violence. From the off we are given a clue to what lies ahead for us as a man is frantically trying to report a murder by phone, he gets the runaround by the voices at the other end of the line, only when he announces that he will have to use his stolen credit cards to make the call does he at last get put through to someone who needs to hear what he has to say. Enter James Woods on twitchy, sardonic and intense form. Who we then quickly find at the murder scene calmly sitting at the victim's desk leafing through her literature as her shredded corpse hangs from the ceiling behind him.

Fast paced efficient thriller based on James Ellroy's novel Blood on the Moon.
James Woods plays Detective Lloyd Hopkins a bitter and twisted borderline sociopath who believes "innocence kills". It's one of his best amped up and over-driven performances. Lesley Anne Warren is Kathleen McCarthy. a feminist poet with a grim secret in her past and a psychotic stalker in her present. Lloyd is convinced that Kathleen's past and future are connected to the romantic poems she receives from a secret admirer and which she cherishes as the work of an enlightened male. Is the admirer the psycho?
Aside from it's other attributes COP (1988) is said to be the first movie to use the term "serial killer". If there is a problem with the film it's that the ending feels rushed and a little incoherent. Personally, I think this is also true of the excellent source novel.
