One Tough Cop (1998)



Critic Consensus: An aimless vanity piece starring a miscast Stephen Baldwin, this limp thriller tries too hard to portray the real-life Bo Dietl as One Tough Cop for him to be a believable one, too.

Critic Reviews for One Tough Cop

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (8)

The movie misses sure bets in scene after scene.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

It's not one long series of gunfights and carefully choreographed car chases: it's a throwback to character-driven 1970s-era crime thrillers.
