Did You Know?


During production of the chase scene, the fuel cell (a small gas canister for stunt driving to reduce chance of explosion) for the Taxi didn't arrive on time. The stunt proceeded despite this, and the gas tank caught fire from sparks generated by the wheel rims scraping the pavement. The stunt driver fled from the flaming car, the fire was doused, and the film was briefly halted from production. See more »


When the clerk is scratching tickets for the burglar, he starts scratching the second one, then it goes to a close-up of his face and he says that it isn't a winner, then it goes back to the angle of his hands scratching tickets, and there are now three scratched tickets laying there. The clerk had only scratched two. See more »

There's a little piece of Cordell in every cop
14 December 2005 | by (Brooklyn NY USA) – See all my reviews

**SPOILERS** More violent then the original "Maniac Cop" with a far higher body count "Maniac Cop II" starts where it's predecessor left off with Matt Cordell,Robert Z'Dar, crashing into the East River on a hijacked police patty-wagon and being according to the official police report swept out to sea, we could only hope.

Out of the night this giant killer policeman is back but this time to take care of some unfinished business, and loose ends, from the first "Maniac Cop" film. Cordell goes on a rampage killing a number of nightclub strippers and exotic dancers and setting up this holdup man,Marco Rodriguez,to be gunned down by the police. Cordell also goes as far as hanging a very eager and gleeful traffic cop,Angel Salazan, who ended up getting hooked on to his own tow-truck and towed away. Cordell then finishes off the two cops who did him, or tried to, in officers Forrest & Mallory, Bruce Campball & Laurene Landon. All this within the first half hour of the movie. Cordell want's justice in his own warped and twisted way and that's to have his name cleared and those in the police department and NYC political hierarchy who set him up and had him convicted and sent to Sing Sing to be brought before the bar of justice.

It's hard to be critical of the rampaging "Maniac Cop" Matt Cordell since he does have a reason for his actions even though a lot of the people that he murders in the film had nothing to do with his being sent to prison an innocent man. The movie brings out, unlike the first "Maniac Cop", that Cordell was getting too close to exposing, like another Frank Serpico, corruption in the police and Mayors office. It's then when those in power framed him and even got a number of Sing Sing convicts to try to murder Cordell in prison.

Having Det. McKinney and police psychiatrist Susan Riley, Robert Davi & Claudia Chrishan, put on the case they soon begin to realize why their superiors, from Asst. Police Commissioner Doyle (Michael Lerner) on down, want to keep the lid on the Matt Cordell case and his possible innocence! They were the ones who framed him. Shrewdly getting sexual pervert Steve Turkell ,Leo Rossi, whom Cordell rescued from the police to go along with his plan in high-jacking a police prison bus. The bus with death-row inmate Blum, Clarence Williams III,as a passenger together with the kidnapped officer Riley Cordell sets off for Sing Sing Prison after Cordell massacred almost everyone in New York's Police One Plaza headquarters. This is Cordell's plan to finally settle the score and get things right about himself and the snow-job that was perpetrated on him by those from high above.

Really wild final with Cordell, with the help of Det. McKinney, getting a scared to death and repented Police Commissioner Doyle to not only have his conviction overturned but have him admit in public that he, not Cordell, was responsible for all the crimes that Cordell was convicted of. Meanwhile inside the prison the vengeful and destructive Matt Cordell went back into "Maniac Cop" mode going after those who mutilated his face and tried to slash him to death while he was imprisoned there. Cordell really let it all hang out with an explosive rage that set the screen, and Cordell and his prison tormentors, on fire.
