Live Poll: The Big Repentance: Corrupt Cops
Police is necessary for any healthy society. Without our upright officers, we would stick in chaos and maybe civilisation would fall apart. So please give the officers in your neighbourhood respect and a friendly smile!
In some movies criminal cops are the subject. They steal, blackmail other criminals, do drugs or prostitution, they keep money for shutting up and/or looking away or simply have their fun to beat someone and many other bad deeds. They are not trustworthy, whether for society nor criminals. In one word: Corruption! In some of these films the bad officer repents his deeds by his own inner persuation. These are golden changers, mostly everybody has some sympathy for. In other movies the decision to stop his (their) false game is made by upright colleagues or even other criminals.
(Spoiler bars attached to avoid spoiling the movie for you.)
Which of these movies about repenting corrupt cops or upright police colleagues, or criminals who stop the bad, but uniformed guys is your favorite?
Report the bad guys here.
It's all said in the intro and the examples. I'd say no movie rated lower than 6.5.
The upright coleague has to stop or try to stop the bad guy/gal (officer) in the movie. Or:
The corrupt cop repents on his/her own inner persuation. Or:
A criminal stops the corrupt cop in any way (tricking, shooting, etc.).
Please add a little text to each suggestion that tells how the corrupt cop was stopped and by whom. And the circumstances.
It's very exhausting to figure it out from movies I haven't seen or just don't remember proper. Thank you.
