Maniac Cop 2
Directed by William Lustig
Renegade police officer Matthew Cordell once roamed the streets of New York City unleashing his murderous brand of vigilante justice upon its denizens before being struck down by good cop Jack Forrest. Now, Forrest is eager to move on from those heinous events, but he is stopped short when a familiar killing spree begins. Though thought dead and gone, Cordell is back from the grave and ready to wreak his merciless havoc once more.
A New York detective hunts an undead policeman, now teamed up with a killer of strippers.
Cast: Robert Davi, Claudia Christian, Michael Lerner
Entertaining and solid sequel to an eighties horror classic.
Honestly I'd give a 3.5, but having to choose it's more a 4 than a three. The stunt work in this is awesome for a direct to video movie. The soundtrack slaps and the acting is pretty on for a B-reel. I hate that Campbell isn't a bigger part of the film. I also hate that it seems to glorify Cordell and police violence more in this than the first. Cordell is definitely a villain and not an antihero and the film seems confused about that. Still it's a good watch, I'd watch it again.
Still a great campy classic. It always saddens me a little when Bruce Campbell is killed off in the beginning of the movie though.
fukk the police
