Trivia

The film had a troubled production. When director William Lustig's rough cut came in at only 51 minutes, he refused to shoot the additional scenes the producers wanted and quit the project; the balance of the picture was directed by co-producer Joel Soisson. Prior to Blue Underground's DVD and Blu-ray release of the movie in 2013, Lustig was the film's credited director. However, the Blue Underground version is credited to the Director's Guild of America pseudonym Alan Smithee. See more »

One of the all time top trilogies.
25 May 2001 | by moz-1See all my reviews

In a word, wow! Maniac Cop one was awesome: great subject matter, assured direction, true excitement and Bruce Campbell. I thought I'd watch the sequel for a laugh and ... it too was awesome. Enter Robert Davi and some more great action and laughs. What's that I hear you say? A cheap eighties action/horror with an equal sequel? Well you won't believe this, but I watched number three last night and I was blown away. Once again this film is equal to the original, and also enjoys a new cynical humour which was great fun. In this movie the cops and reporters and doctors all have a really crass way of talking about death when Robert Davi ask's how his partner is doing he gets the reply "Put her in a rock garden", with her parents well in earshot! This kind of sick humour punctuates the impressive action and actually adds to the realism of the movie. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes to enjoy themself(which has to be everyone). Go watch!
