A very entertaining and well acted movie. Better than you'd expect and well directed by William Lustig (Maniac, Uncle Sam)One of the film most memorable scenes is where Matt Cordell causes a massacre at a police station.
The Maniac Cop movies are very underated slashers in my opninion. So, if you like other slasher movie series such as Friday The 13th, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Child's Play and Halloween, you should add Maniac Cop 1-3 to your collection as well.
This sequel literally begins where the first one left off; from out of a watery grave.....Maniac Cop! He's bent on revenge (finally), having gotten detoured during the first film by a lot of needless killings (warm-ups for the real thing). He has help in this one in the form of a serial killer (a cackling Leo Rossi). That's the only sore spot I have concerning this film, Leo Rossi's clichéd bad guy who won't stop cackling (the lazy actor's approach to villainy, when in doubt, bug out your eyes and cackle).
Poor Bruce Campbell, he pulls a Janet Leigh and doesn't make it all the way through this feature. I missed him immediately. At least Robert Davi more than made up for his absence playing a cop who readily believes Maniac Cop is still on the loose, even if no one will listen to him....until it's too late.
I liked that Maniac Cordell was able to take a road trip before once again "dying." I rate this on par with the original. I enjoy it for what it is, which is not your state of the art horror flick.
