30 Movie Police Chiefs More Furious Than You Can Possibly Imagine
The crotchety cops who rock our world

submit to reddit

Everyone knows that police chiefs are the shoutiest, angriest men of the movie world. Relentlessly sweaty, perpetually on the verge of a major cardiac incident and never more than a minute from their next cup of joe (black, three sugars, goddamnit), they deserve sympathy and support. What they get instead is an array of rulebook-burning, shoot-first-find-out-who-they’re-shooting-at-later maverick detectives and cowboy cops hell-bent on driving them into an early retirement and / or the grave. Here are a few of our favourite scarlet-faced precinct warriors...

Beverly Hills Cop II (1987)

Angry chief: Inspector Todd (Gil Hill)
Angriest quote: "Don't think, Axel! It makes my dick itch."
Fury level: About to blow his top.
Possible HR issues: Shouting; multiple uses of the word "ass" and one threat to "fry your ass into dog meat".
Health problems? Blood pressure of 120 over a billion. Itchy dick.
Badge taken? Not yet. Soon, though. Very soon.

The daddy, plain and simple. Hill had been a real-life cop, and Inspector Todd is what would happen if a kraken joined the Detroit Police Department and spent 20 years working with Axel Foley. A combustible mix of stress, exasperation and fury at Foley’s wiseassery, Todd is angry to the point of physically exploding. In fact, Axel’s very appearance in his office ("WHERETHEFUCKYOUBEENFOLEY?!") creates a chain reaction that threatens to explode Michigan. This man needs a holiday somewhere calmer. Like Saturn.
