Plot summary

(1 vote)

Freddy Heflin (Sylvester Stallone) has always wanted to be a policeman, but due to deafness in one of his ears, he has been limited to becoming the town sheriff. After a botched attempt to cover-up the murder of two black juveniles, a New York cop commits suicide, and his uncle Ray Donlan (Harvey Keitel) tries to bury the evidence. With the aid of Internal Affairs Investigator Moe Tilden (Robert De Niro) and bummed out, friendless NYPD Officer Gary Figgs (Ray Liotta), Freddy begins to investigate a corruption within the NYPD, when the proper authorities fail to find the body of the dead cop.

Continuity mistake: In one of the scenes, Sheriff Heflin is playing a record, and the music we hear is a song by Springsteen. However, the record doesn't have the red Columbia Records label that all of Springsteen's albums have. They obviously decided to use Springsteen's song later.

Trivia: In the trailer, there is a scene in which a purple Geo Tracker is doing a 180 degree turn. This scene is not in the film.

Question: Did Ray set up the killing of Joey Randone because of what he saw them do, or was it just luck on Ray's part that he was attacked and left hanging from a TV aerial to then plunge to his death, and this is why he stalled for time with the door lock?
