A true story about an honest cop. Al Pacino plays the police officer who refuses to extort money from businesses in his district. It is a great reminder that some men do stand up for the truth and honesty on the job.

It was cool to see a young Al Pacino starring in this biopic, directed by Sidney Lumet (12 Angry Men, The Verdict, etc.). A difficult chapter in this New York cop's true life story. Serpico had incredible moral character.

See interesting NY Times piece, Serpico on Serpico


in the "where is he now" vein.
