The Maniac Cop returns from the dead for the third time when a female cop is shot down during an attempted hostage rescue. This time, the “wrong” arm of the law wants a love girl, and nothing’s likely to stop him!
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
I like that they give him a unique and genuine motivation for each return from the grave. Throughout the series, there are great horrorhouse effects and this is no different. I'm not sure why the "Alan Smithee", number two was far less thoughtful.
There is a lot of good pyrotechnics and explosions and it is nice to see Robert Davi returning as the main hero. The pace is much slower this time and is a much less interesting production as it skips much of the humor for a full-blooded horror movie that lacks inventiveness and becomes inferior to the first two. An ending that hopes for a new potential sequel that will never happen also annoys enormously.
