Movie Reviews

Chance, circumstance, compassion, loss - a journey.
Victoria Tarrani | Betwixt FL and CA, USA | 03/06/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is an interesting psychological journey of One Good Cop (Michael Keaton) who makes a decision to do something wrong. One thought stands out in the movie, and will probably stay with me for a long time: People make millions in drug money while law abiding, honest people can barely afford to keep a roof over their heads. That truth is relevant.Keaton was excellent in showing the honesty of a cop who loses his partner of eight years. It is easy to see how deep the bond of friendship is between shield carrying brothers or sisters. They can't really share their day at home with family and loved ones because it would drag their family through the underworld garbage as well. That barrier, however, is hard on a marriage, but remains in place because cops do want to protect the good guys. Keaton is given the guardianship of his partner's children. Rene Russo is beautiful in her role as Keaton's wife; always wanting children, but unable to bear them. Suddenly life gives her a family -- and these children need two loving guardians to have a healthy survival of the loss of both of their parents. They do not need to be separated into three foster homes or adopted by different families. However, there is simply not enough money to take care of them. Neither Keaton nor Russo want to lose these three little girls who brought a new kind of love and laughter into their tiny home. And tiny it is -- one bedroom, where the girls now sleep together, a living room, kitchen, and bathroom. The significance of the lodgings is the impetus for the crime. The question arises: is stealing from criminals, in order to take care of the children they turned into orphans, sactioned?Benjamin Bratt is filled with his usual bravado, and he is also a good cop. In fact, the entire supporting cast is well chosen. Even Bratt agrees with the police captain's decision when ultimately the crime is exposed.This is good drama, a strong story, and the psychological journey is worth the trip. I give is four stars.Victoria Tarrani"
One good movie

"Michael Keaton has been in some good movies and this is one of them. One Good Cop is more of an action drama than a "shoot em/kill em" type movie. It has a good story and you care about what happens to the characters. If you are a Michael Keaton fan or just like entertaining cop stories then this movie is one to see."

"This kind of a movie is a rare guest on screens nowdays. Police movies are not very popular now and that's a pity. "One Good Cop" has a solid plot with all the genre's attributes. Besides it's a touching and kind-hearted story about a cop who has to raise the three daughters of his partner who's been killed doing his job.
Michael Keaton's work is just something special here. He's always good but in this film I guess he demonstrated all his abilities. I can note practically everyone who's been involved in this movie - Rene Russo, Anthony LaPaglia, Rachel Ticotin, Tony Plana (brilliant as a villain) and young Benjamin Bratt who is very interesting to look at here.
"One Good Cop" is not just an action movie, it's an insight into human relationship, into relationship between friends, husband and wife, grown ups and kids.
Great film that can be recommended to anyone who just loves good quality cinema. You won't be disappointed. Everytime I watch it I get a little nostalgic because this movie is of an extincting kind."
