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: The first scene with Murray Babitch driving across the George Washington Bridge from New York to New Jersey was actually filmed going the other direction. When driving from New York to New Jersey on the lower level of the bridge you enter a black tunnel first, and exit through a yellow tiled tunnel. The scene in the film starts in the yellow tiled tunnel - New Jersey to New York direction.
