Cop (1988)

copBy Scott Goldfine

James Woods stars as an obsessive over-the-edge L.A. police sergeant in “Cop.” Playing a quirky amoral character — Woods forsakes his family, friends and job to track down a serial killer. This is a modern film noir in which the cop sinks as low as the criminal he’s stalking.

Loaded with lots of offbeat humor ― “Cop” ultimately works thanks to Woods’ strong screen presence. Also stars Lesley Ann Warren and Charles Durning. Rated R.
