A disappointing end to what could have been a good slasher trilogy
4 June 2015 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

After two decent movies made with the same director and writer you would think that this would be awesome like its predecessors, wrong! Pretty much everything is messed up in this movie. The biggest problem is probably the poor writing, what was the purpose? Why and what's going on? I have no idea what I've just watched, there is little to none explanation. I find this is kind of odd thinking that this is made by the same filmmakers that made Maniac Cop 1 and 2, two movies that has a rather easy and straightforward plot, the whole movie feels rushed and unfinished. There is not much good to say about this movie, even Cordell reacts unnatural compared with MC 1 and 2, but it does have some neat fire stunts. Anyway, a disappointing and by far the weakest movie in the Maniac Cop trilogy.
