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 »
In the scene where Det. McKinney and Dr Fowler are reviewing the unedited video of the shooting involving Officer Sullivan, the dialogue from Officer Sullivan is not consistent with the dialogue from the original shooting scene from earlier in the movie. See more »
Delivers the goods, but the priest subplot falls flat (mostly, anyway)
The third time is also the charm for MC3, but it's slightly less interesting than 1 & 2. For starters, the voodoo stuff is unconvincing and unnecessary. If you notice at the end of MC2, when Cordell was still in the casket, He was seen reaching for his badge, indicating he's still alive. So why a resurrection if he isn't really dead? Even if I had enjoyed it more, it would still be pointless, since this priest has resurrected a living body. Plus, the movie mostly takes place in a hospital, like "Halloween II". Of course, the chase scene is the most fun. Even the convenience store robbery doesn't work as well as it should. If the robber looks familiar to you, he's Jackie Earle Haley (Freddy Krueger, of the NOES remake.
