One Tough Cop | 1998 | R | - 3.5.10

Stephen Baldwin and Chris Penn are two New York City police officers who battle their personal demons along with criminals on the street. Also with Gina Gershon, Mike McGlone, Frank Pellegrino, Bo Dietl, Paul Calderon, Philip Akin, Nigel Bennett, Mike Santana, Christopher Bregman, Vito Rezza, Marium Carvell and Luis Guzman. [1:30]

SEX/NUDITY 3 - Some sexual innuendo and a few passionate kisses -- in one scene, a man kisses a woman's cleavage. A man and woman talk and kiss passionately in bed (we see his bare chest and their bare shoulders and backs). We see a woman's bare legs and the bottom part of her bare buttocks as she puts on a short nightshirt. Several women wear cleavage-revealing tops.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - Four people are shot; we see a little blood either on clothing, hands or next to the bodies. An unconscious woman with bloody cuts all over her face and shoulders is wheeled into an ambulance. We see some blood stains on a carpet and some puddles of blood. Lots of threatening with guns, some threatening with knives (in one scene, a man holds a butcher knife to another's throat). A man puts a gun in his mouth then we see a full-screen white flash and hear a gunshot. A man slams another's face into a table repeatedly then punches him in the face a few times (the man's face is bloody). A man is hit in the head with a garbage can lid several times. A few more people are punched and slapped and one man is choked. A couple of tackles, shoves and scuffles. A man breaks some television sets and throws them out a window. We see a body lying on the ground (presumably the person was shot).

LANGUAGE 10 - About 105 F-words, lots of anatomical and scatological references, some mild obscenities and several insults.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
