Zapa is a locksmith in a quiet and little town lost somewhere in the province of Buenos Aires. The work is quite slow, and hours seem to pass slowly. Polaco, the owner of the shop, sends him on a job that consists of opening a safe at an office. The next day, Zapa is imprisoned for being responsible of robbing the place. Ismael, his uncle, a retired policeman, bails him out and sends him to Buenos Aires. Zapa becomes an aspiring officer in the Buenos Aires Police. He gets to his new home city, takes the instructional course, works at a precinct, has a love affair with a teacher and starts to see his life turn into a strange fiction.

Sean C (it) wrote: I had never heard of this movie before and I just happened to see it on TCM. It was pretty funny. Both Jack Nicholson and Warren Beatty are really good here. Their chemistry is very apparent and both of them could easily reverse roles and play each other's characters if they wanted to. It's worth if only for the scene with the two of them arguing over having the same mustache.

Niels S (fr) wrote: Interesting premise of two western legends teaming up during the 1929 first Academy Award Show turns into amazingly boring murder mystery. Directed by tired old Blake Edwards and edited by someone who should have retired in the sixties.

Jake C (it) wrote: Stone Cold is believeable and the gore is great but there is only one problem.It has that same shaky camera garbage that PG-13 movies like to use. I can never tell what is going on in the fight scenes. This earns its R rating rather easily too.If it wasn't for that then I would like this movie a lot more.
