Amazon does not have this movie listed as being available on DVD, but here in Australia it is! (Regioun 4)
I had seen this years ago, but it was a rental on VHS that was overly worn out and the picture & sound was so bad I turned it off halfway through.
When I saw this DVD in the really cheap bin ($3, hows that for cheap?) I thought i'd give it a go, it would only be pocket change i'd lose anyway.
I expected this to be a bad b-grade horror flick, but I really got into it straight away. It's about a cop named Matt Cordell who was a cop with the NYPD who was setup for something by the head cheif of police or something, and i'm not actualy too sure if he is supposed to be dead, or just scarred or what, but he seems to be a Jason Voorhees style zombie who can't be killed.
Matt Cordell is terrorising the city by killing cops. I guess it's his way of revenge against them or something. Along the way he meets a seriol killer who keeps murdering strippers and they become a forgetable duo.
Comments: A lot of the events taking place where a bit confusing, I guess I will have to see the original Maniac Cop to fully understand what the flash backs are about and in what order, but neither MC1 or MC3 are available here yet.
This is a sequel, and i'm already taking an interest in this saga. It's not brilliant, not exactly original, and the ending of Cordells (supposed) demise I thought was a bit too quick and should have been drawn out with a tighter and bigger ending, but overall, I like it.
If your into Freddy, Jason, Chucky, Myers or those type of charactors, then I recomend this film if you havent already seen it, just give it a go and see what you reckon. If your into thriller with a twist and creative plot, then this will not be your thing.
Bonus Features: None. Tho it does have the trailer to MC2, MC3 and Strange Bedfellows, but I do not consider trailers a bonus feature, they should just be standard on every DVD.
Me Cop II rocks and I cant wait to see the first and 3rd one now!
