You are probably thinking of Max Payne -
(warning - site requires Flash)

"Max Payne is a man with nothing to lose in the violent, cold urban night. A fugitive undercover cop framed for murder, and now hunted by cops and the mob. Max is a man with his back against the wall, fighting a battle he cannot hope to win..."

Reminds me a bit of that old David Letterman gag with Bruno Kirby -
"He's a cop...on the edge!"
