Editorial Reviews

Review

"Columbo with a dash of Jim Carrey" -- -New York Times

"Finally a superhero for the 90's!" -- -Chainsaw Fodder

"Four Stars…more compelling than certain other low budget movies with much more acclaim...one of the best films of 1990." -- -epinions.com

"This is the best Troma-movie that I have ever seen. Lloyd Kaufman is one of the coolest directors ever." -- -internet movie database

Product Description

Produced during the xenophobic late-80’s by the creators of the classic Toxic Avenger, Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD introduced a second classic superhero to the Tromaverse! Harry Griswold, a hapless NYC cop, undergoes a fantastic physical transformation to become the legendary Japanese hero, Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD! Armed with fatal sushi, heatseeking chopsticks and pyro projectile parasols, Sgt Kabukiman NYPD must learn how to use his Kabuki powers to save the Big Apple (and the Earth) from the evil one, all while filleting an array of baddies, from brutal pimps to Central Park rapists! Timely and satirical! Action packed and hilarious, with eye-popping special effects and hair raising fight sequences! This exclusive unrated edition of Sgt. Kabukiman NYPD comes fully stocked with heretofore unseen extras, such as the unreleased Sgt. Kabukiman cartoon and a director’s commentary by director Lloyd Kaufman!

Customer Reviews

Kabukiman is easily one of the funniest movie's I've ever seen.
Matt A. Doore
If it wasn't for the horrible ending and some of the boring "Bad Guy" dialogue scenes, this would have been one of the best, if not the best movie ever made.
Teressa Manahan
Apart from that fatal flaw, the film is just bad in every other aspect too.

Isn't it ironic that the home video market almost killed Troma and now it is responsible for Troma's huge resurgence? Lloyd Kaufman is not taking it for granted. He is loading up these dvds with extras, not just trailers and triva, but this one comes with the rare animated Kabukiman cartoon! It also has great commentary by the star Rick Gianisi, and if that's not enough may I remind you that the movie is a cult classic because it is a hilarious homage to camp classics like the Adam West Batman series. It can't hurt that one of the female police officers wears a thin white tank top and painted on spandex jogging shorts either!!

This movie is unquestionably one of the funniest things I've seen in a long time. The clown scene literally caused me to experience my first heart attack.(well maybe not, but I was laughing for 7 minutes straight) The killer chopsticks were brilliant, and the ancient prophecy was...well...hehehehehhe

This is equal to Troma's War which was a masterpiece and awesome. Sgt. Kabukiman is easily one of the funniest movie's I've ever seen. With Lethal Chopsticks, and fatal sushi you can never go wrong.

I loved it.

The planets are coming into alignment and evil will soon walk the earth again, unless Kabukiman rises to stand against this ancient threat. The chosen one has been training for twenty-five years, and just before he is to receive the spirit of Kabukiman, he is murdered. In steps the NYPD's... well, not finest, but most typical. The cocky police sargeant goes through some growing pains and struggles with his new gifts, and suffers a loss due to his inability to master his gifts. Violence and hilarity ensues.

Utterly ridiculous and frivolous, which a budget that must have been at least six figures; quality special effects, plausibility, and post-production polish were left outside the door.

The script is remarkably sophisticated for a minimum budget effort. Some of the campier aspects might not survive a better budget, but despite this there was a degree of character growth and nuance that would normally pass unnoticed in a flick like this.

I enjoyed this movie no end. Well worth the effort.

..>Great entertainment..so much BANG! for your BUCKAROO..
I am so glad I came across this gem of a time capsule.. Just notice the pictures on the desk of Reginald Stuart, the "evil spirit", one has him with Jim and Tammy Faye Baker.....priceless. Recalling all active agents...Griswold.

Every time I see this movie it gets funnier and cooler! The star Rick Gianasi has it all-cuteness,sexyness and a nack for physical humor which makes the movie the greatest! True that the quality of the video isnt great but it improves with the DVD version. I would like it if the sound was 5:1 but I had so much fun with this movie that I didnt miss it too much. Kudos to Lloyd Kaufman about the DVD extras. I would love to meet the people at Troma Team- They seem to be so imaginative and fun. (...)

It is so bad it's good. What would you expect for an action adventure movie with Kabuki themed hero? Huh? So the producer could get the support of a Japanese game company. I really like the heroine and the hero is competent, but not even they can save the movie. I like the episode where the hero, green as a kabuki man, turns into a clown, and is chased through the city squirting seltzer and whipped cream at the villains. Also, the end where the stars form a semblance to Sgt. Kabukiman.
