Cop Land

Cop Land
-During the 1970s, cops from New York wanted a safe haven from the every day hustle and bustle of police work. Garrison, New Jersey seems to fit the bill, although this town is affectionately nicknamed "Cop Land". Freddy Heflin is the sheriff of this town. Due to being deaf in one ear, he was prevented from becoming a police officer in New York. Suddenly, there seems to be a lot of suspicious corruption involving the NYPD and he's not the only one investigating. He soon finds an Internal Affairs rep named Moe Tilden is also on the case

-Sylvester Stallone: Freddy Heflin
-Robert De Niro: Moe Tilden
-Ray Liotta: Gary Figgis

-Robert Patrick: Jack Rucker
-Michael Rapaport: Murray 'Superboy' Babitch
