A female cop is gunned down and wrongly accused of using excessive force in a hostage rescue attempt. Maniac cop returns from the dead once more to seek revenge, destroying everthing and anyone that stands in his way. Written by
The film had a troubled production. When director William Lustig's rough cut came in at only 51 minutes, he refused to shoot the additional scenes the producers wanted and quit the project; the balance of the picture was directed by co-producer Joel Soisson. Prior to Blue Underground's DVD and Blu-ray release of the movie in 2013, Lustig was the film's credited director. However, the Blue Underground version is credited to the Director's Guild of America pseudonym Alan Smithee. See more »

Det. Sean McKinney:
I can't imagine the kind of pain you feel Matt. I'm not gonna pretend to. But don't condemn her to the same fate. She deserves better. You cleared her. She's at peace. Let her go, Matt. Let her go.

"Maniac Cop 3: Badge of Silence" is yet another solid sequel that is just as good as the previous two movies in the series. As weird as it may seem, the maniac cop (played again by Robert Z'Dar) seems to have a heart in this one when he starts protecting a female cop who was wounded in a shootout and was said to be too hard on criminals. Now the crazed cop goes on another killing spree and it is up to Robert Davi (repraising his role from "Maniac Cop 2" to stop him. If you're a fan of the first two, be sure not to miss this entry with the exciting climax with the crazed cop a flame behind the wheel of a car. *** out of ***** Stars.
