Welcome to the seventh installment of #StalloneMonth, which I have to say, is my favorite time of the year! In February we look over the filmography of this wonderful actor, 4-5 movies at a time. This has been a fun project, and I will keep on going until I run out of movies to review! As we are still at home in various kind of lockdown, it is the perfect time to go and look at the awesome movies that - despite any ratings on movie sites - have the awesome, the one and only, the inimitable: Sly Stallone.
Cop Land (1997)
Freddy Heflin (Sylvester Stallone) is a sheriff of a small New Jersey town, as he could not apply to the police academy after having lost his hearing in one ear after an accident. He is considered to be a nobody, and the town, that is filled with NY cops, ignores him completely. Little do they know, that Freddy will not let anyone be above the law.
Watch it? Definitely. This was a diamond in the rough for me, something I had seen posters of but never heard any reviews or mentions, despite the wonderful casting and the smart plot. I just cannot get enough of Sylvester Stallone.
That is the end of #StalloneMonth for 2021, thank you for staying with me while we went through these movies. A year from now I will continue this, until we run out of Stallone movies. February will always be devoted to this powerhouse of a man and his legacy.
Until the next item on my list!
