Cop Secret is a spoof cop-movie packed with action, explosions, over-the-top soundtrack... but also feelings! When tough supercop Bússi gets paired with a new partner, formed male top-model Hörður, things don't go exactly as planned.
Cop Secret starts with a high-speed car chase through the streets of Reykjavík, introducing supercop Bússi – a gung-ho, rugged guy... who is also a closeted gay man. When Bússi gets a new partner, the former top model Hörður, things get tough for our supercop: he falls hard for Hörður and struggles with his attraction towards his partner. Meanwhile, villain Rikki Ferrari, an ex-model as well, masterminds a criminal scheme, which Hörður and Bússi must prevent.
This spoof buddy cop movie is a laugh-out-loud comedy with lots of absurd situations, explosive moments, and parody fight scenes. Director Hannes Þór Halldórsson uses all the codes of hyper-masculinity and macho films to turn them on their heads, creating hilarious scenes that play with all the genre's tropes. Bad guy Rikki Ferrari is also a permanent source of jokes, with his obsession with animal metaphors and American-English. So buckle-up and get ready for this action-packed comedy!
