    There's the one that opens with a tight shot of the suspect's bloody hands, handcuffed behind him. An officer's hand, dirty with skinned knuckes, is holding each elbow. The camera stays tight on the hands; the lighting and sound of footsteps change as they walk into the the station, down corridors, into the jail and into the booking cage.
    For the next six hours the officers write reports, fill out evidence tags, drink bad coffee and suffer interruptions from fools who want to know what happened.

    Darn...what's the name of that movie?

    Oh yeah, nobody's made it yet.

      My favorite cop movie is "L.A. Confidential". I don't think any cop movie I've ever seen was realistic.....Way too much drama. The most realistic thing that the show biz folks have ever come up with was, and is, "Barney Miller".

        I'm going to have to go with "Last Action Hero", one of the most realistic and gritty portrayals of police work to have ever hit the silver screen.

          As to correct portrayal of an incident, The Onion Field was by7 far the most accurate.

          For comedy but truth, The New Centurians started it all and was fantastic.

          For action, nothing beat the Dirty Harry Series.

          For television series, Hill Street Blues was a classic many cops watched on their dinner break or squad room TV. It was mandatory viewing.

          Recently, I loved Third Watch. Never missed it.

                ok not realistic, but it's still one of my fav's.

                Yeah, Seventy2002, the movie that has 10 minutes of good action, then the rest filled with paperwork...coffee, stupid calls...back to paperwork, interrupted with more stupid calls...then paperwork again.

                  The Departed was pretty dang good, but really none of the LE movies out there are accurate. Still fun to watch 'em though.

                    lol...Man I hated that movie.

                    Best cop movie...or best movie I should say is The Departed. Colors is also a great movie. Those two would be my favorite cop movies.

                      I'm lookin' forward to American Gangster with Denzel Washington and Russell Crowe.

                          The first fifteen "Police Academy" films, but after that they kind of went downhill as far as realism is concerned.

                            I totally agree many of the hollywood movies about police work aren't accurate. The movie COLORS with liberal Sean Penn and Robert Duval is probably the most accurate one about working in a city environment though LA is another world all together. There used to be a tv show called "High Incident" with Blair Underwood and Brian Keith that was also close to realistic. Sometimes Unfortunately "RENO 911" is so funny because to a degree it is accurate.

                              Training day put it out there for many with the absolute fact of life that sometimes to stop the "wolves" you have to be like one.
