Did You Know?

Trivia:
Bruce Campbell has jokingly stated at conventions that he does not like being reminded of or asked questions about this film, as he was going through a messy divorce during filming. Violators of the taboo will quickly find themselves on the receiving end of Campbell's legendarily ruthless razor wit. This has led to convention-goers deliberately bringing up the film in order to have the "honor" of being insulted by him.See more »

The second "Maniac Cop" is even trashier than the first one, 22 December 2007
Author: TheMarquisDeSuave from Worcester, MA

The first "Maniac Cop" was an enjoyable piece of trash, but this film manages to outdo it in most departments. Its more over-the-top, more violent, and even more entertaining. Sure, it doesn't have much of the great Bruce Campbell, but lets not lie to ourselves - he wasn't really given too much to do in the first film. This is an extremely mindless and illogical film (which is a bit surprising, because Larry Cohen is well known as one of the most subversive and intelligent screenwriters in exploitation cinema). However, I doubt most fans of the vintage schlock would have it any other way.

In addition to being more enjoyable, the technical aspects of this film are an improvement over the first. William Lustig's direction is very quickly paced. This is a tight and taut little b-flick that gets its punchy job done. Also, the acting, while not exactly deep, is a lot less wooden than the first time around. Robert Davi proves himself to be a very capable man. This is just the icing on the cake for a series of entertaining set pieces and wonderfully over-the-top moments. "Maniac Cop 2" will probably be forgotten about once its over, but its an entertaining diversion for b-movie fans. (6/10)
