Below are my 20 favourite police & crime films/movies of all time. Obviously, all the films below have a story which is focused on the police, crime, gangsters or serial killers. Many of the movies I have choosen could be described as action movies, but there are others which are more serious (less action and more drama).
Just to mention before anybody says anything, I haven't included the Die Hard films here, because I think they are more action than crime movies.
