Feels like a mishmash of discarded parts of crime films like Goodfellas and Casino and it's composed largely of cast from those films. Despite an attempt to recreate the mood of those films, the plot and characters, simply, aren't as compelling or strong.

HAD to watch this, mainly because of how great the cast is (Liotta! Stallone!!, Keitel!!!, De Niro!!!!) and was not disappointed.

At the time Cop Land was touted as Sylvester Stallone's foray into serious acting and although he is merely channelling Rocky Balboa with a badge, he acquits himself quite well. But it is the excellent supporting cast that makes the film work, including heavy weights of crime drama Robert De Niro, Harvey Keitel and the pick of the bunch Ray Liotta whose crisis of conscience is pivotal to the story. On the down side, Cop Land does not quite have the dramatic gravitas suggested by the all star cast and the finale is something of an anti-climax but it's a solidly …
