A New York policeman (Harvey Keitel) imprisons and tortures an admitted cop-killer (John Lydon), but finds the tables turned when his victim refuses to break and in fact urges more punishment. Highlighted is the intense interplay between the irrepressible Keitel and Lydon, the sneering frontman of the Sex Pistols as Johnny Rotten. The film is also known as Cop Killers and Order of Death.
