COP LAND (1997)

Stallone is more stocky than Rocky in this brooding corruption drama, playing Freddy Heflin, the half-witted sheriff of a quiet New Jersey suburb that's been all but taken over by bent cops. Heflin either doesn't notice or doesn't care about their small-time crooked capers, until one of Manhattan's not-so-finest, Murray Babitch, shoots dead a couple of black motorists. In a gob-smacking display of arrogance, Babitch fakes his own death and "hides out" in Cop Land, right under Heflin's nose. But when Internal Affairs come knocking on the door in the shape of De Niro, the lardy lawman is inspired to make a stand, but how do you beat a bunch of criminals who happen to be on the right side of the law?
