Did You Know?

Trivia

Expert editor Michael Eliot was brought in to re-edit the movie because of the behind the scenes problems and short running time of William Lustig's rough cut. This is why there are several scenes in the movie which are very obviously outtakes of scenes from Maniac Cop 2. See more »

Goofs

Near the end of the movie, with the detective and the doctor riding in the ambulance, the first head-on shot of the ambulance clearly shows the ambulance has a headlight out on the driver's side (3 lit). Subsequent shots show the ambulance with no headlights out (4 lit). See more »

Quotes

Det. Sean McKinney: [sighs] What's the prognosis?

Det. Sean McKinney: I don't like your sense of humor.

One of the all time top trilogies.
25 May 2001 | by (Southampton, England) – See all my reviews

In a word, wow! Maniac Cop one was awesome: great subject matter, assured direction, true excitement and Bruce Campbell. I thought I'd watch the sequel for a laugh and ... it too was awesome. Enter Robert Davi and some more great action and laughs. What's that I hear you say? A cheap eighties action/horror with an equal sequel? Well you won't believe this, but I watched number three last night and I was blown away. Once again this film is equal to the original, and also enjoys a new cynical humour which was great fun. In this movie the cops and reporters and doctors all have a really crass way of talking about death when Robert Davi ask's how his partner is doing he gets the reply "Put her in a rock garden", with her parents well in earshot! This kind of sick humour punctuates the impressive action and actually adds to the realism of the movie. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes to enjoy themself(which has to be everyone). Go watch!
