Cop And A Bad Man

Dir. Trenten W. Gumbs, 2010, 73 min.

From the producers of Rude Boy and Gangsta’s Paradise comes the greatest Jamaican action comedy of all-time! Directed by Trenten W. Gumbs, Cop, and a Bad Man is sure to have you rolling with laughter one minute and clutching your seat the next.
