Cop LandThe 1997 crime film Cop Land features perhaps Sylvester Stallone’s (The Expendables) best performance.

Written and directed by James Mangold (Knight and Day), the drama movie stars Stallone as Freddy Heflin, the sheriff of a New Jersey suburb that’s home to a crop of New York City policemen. Injured in an accident years earlier, Freddy looks up to the NYPD cops, something he has always aspired to be, but when he sees a young cop (Michael Rapaport, The 6th Day) who’s supposedly dead alive and kicking, he begins to realize that the cops living in his town might not be so perfect. When Internal Affairs (Robert De Niro, Taxi Driver) asks for Freddy’s help, he’s torn between turning against the cops he admires and being the kind of policeman he has always tried to be.

Released in 1997, Cop Land has a great cast. As well as Stallone, there’s Harvey Keitel (Little Fockers), Ray Liotta (Youth in Revolt), Janeane Garofalo (Love Hurts), Robert Patrick (The Men Who Stare at Goats), Annabella Sciorra (What Dreams May Come) and more…

The movie grossed $45 million back when it was in theaters and did win an award for Stallone: Best Actor from the Stockholm Film Festival.

The version of the movie in the Cop Land Collector’s Series Blu-ray contains 10 additional minutes of footage previously cut from the R-rated theatrical version. The Blu-ray also includes these special features:

  • deleted scenes
  • audio commentary
  • making-of featurette
