Samurai Cop is an absolute gem of a bad movie.

A samurai cop and his side-kick go after the Yakuza, that notorious Japanese organized crime outfit. However, it’s set outside of Los Angeles. And there’s barely a Japanese person to be found.

The samurai cop (Matt Hannon) has a Bon Jovi / Friends / Fabio hairdo that proves to be distracting, not only for aesthetic reasons but also for what we described as “hair continuity issues.”

We discuss second unit footage and cutaways, both of which are used amply here.

The film’s villain utters lines like “I want his head on my piano!”

And we’ve also got the incomparable Robert Z’Dar (Maniac Cop)
