It does not match your description exactly but are you looking for this movie Next(2007) starring Nicolas Cage? He can see into his future. He can only see two minutes ahead, with the exception of a vision he once had of a woman walking into a diner. In this movie, he's not a cop but he tries to help the feds to stop a nuclear attack.

I used Shazam to identify the music in that clip, and it is "Explosion Montage" from the album "Music from Atomic Journeys and Nukes in Space". It turns out "Atomic Journeys" and "Nukes in Space" are two documentary films consisting of explosions and such, narrated by William Shatner. The descriptions imply they are made up of real footage.

No other ideas what it could be.
