Samurai Cop (1989)

Unread postby HungFist » 03 Sep 2013, 07:09

Samurai Cop (USA, 1989)
Sylvester Stallone’s bodyguard Matt Hannon stars as a mullet hero in an inept action movie that has become a laughing stock. The train wreck excels with unbelievable acting performances as tons of quotable dialogue, though action scenes are lame. Unlike the majority of great cult classics Samurai Cop is a film where all the glorious merits are indeed accidental.

”They call him Samurai. He speaks fluent Japanese. He was trained by the masters in Japan.”

(no, this not behind the scenes material. It's an action scene. The stunt man is really pretending to be in great pain)

Even screencaps make that guy look like the worst actor ever.

This is one I missed back in the day, and I watched A LOT of these sort of films back in the day! This clip has pretty much guaranteed this will be the film I take round my friend's house when we have our next beer & pizza film night! :D I also love how the poster for this completely rips off Maniac Cop as well, even though Robert Z'Dar isn't the cop in this! :D

Speaking of Z'Dar, have you seen the state of him these days? Becoming massively overweight when you already have cherubism is not a good look! :(
