Rating:
R

Internal Affairs is a 1990 movie starring Andy Garcia and Richard Gere. Sargent Raymond Avila (Andy Garcia) joins the LAPD and is immediately assigned a case regarding suspicious internal activity, more specifically, an LAPD officer named Dennis Peck (Richard Gere). Sargent Avila has his suspicions about Dennis from the beginning. Peck, a dubious character, dominates everyone around him and manipulatively pawns cops against one another to his own benefit. He also feeds his ego by making passes at every woman in sight. But Sargent Avila soon realizes he has underestimated Peck's power - cops are reluctant to testify against Peck in court, and those who do, end up dead on the streets. As Avila makes a brave attempt to finally corner Peck, he learns he is just another one of Peck's pawns, caught in one of his mischievous ploys. With an excellent cast and an intriguing plot line, what's not to like about this movie? Be sure to watch Internal Affairs!
