It is explained that the severe beating/stabbing Cordell received while in prison caused him to lose "all higher brain function(s)". How does this make him impervious to gunshots and other injuries?

Maniac Cop is one of the many low budget horror films I like. The movie focuses around Jack Forrest (Bruce Campbell) who has been accused of a crime he didn't commit. Along with Frank McCrae (Tom Atkins) and Theresa Mallory (Laurene Landon), they set out to find the real person who committed the crime and that is none other than Matt Cordell (Robert Z'Dar) aka Maniac Cop. I really did like Maniac Cop. Yes the idea may be a little bit cheezy, but the way it was portrayed was great. I recommend this film to Bruce Campbell fans and people who like low budget horror.
