Samurai Cop (1991)

The Katana, a ruthless Yakuza crime syndicate, have overrun the streets of LA, and it is up to one cop to employ his unique brand of bloody justice in order to take back the streets. His name is Joe Marshall, and he is the Samurai Cop! Oh, SAMURAI COP. A movie that is bad in every conceivable way in which a movie can be bad. Dreadfully cliched dialog: Check. Poorly choreographed fight scenes: Check. Underwhelming car chases and special effects: Check. Unbelievably bad wigs used for re-shoots: Check. Mild softcore sex scenes: Check. Awesome early-90s haridos: Big Check. And the list goes on. SAMURAI COP is a testament to terrible filmmaking, but one that B-movie fans are sure to enjoy. The sheer level of incompetence rivals other such classics as REVENGE OF THE NINJA, HOLLYWOOD CHAINSAW HOOKERS, or the infamous ROCK 'N' ROLL NIGHTMARE. It's difficult to say whether Mathew Karedas is a worse actor or martial artist, but one thing is certain: He wears a mullet well. SAMURAI COP simply needs to be seen to believe, no amount of criticism (praise?) can do it justice.

Rating: 3/10.
