5.0 out of 5 stars Unbelievably great...
...but it depends on your definition of great!

If you like those badly-acted 80s films, especially dodgy ninja films like the equally amazing Nine Deaths of the Ninja and any of the Godfrey Ho ones like Ninja Tiger or Ninja Terminator you will LOVE this!

...but it depends on your definition of great!

If you like those badly-acted 80s films, especially dodgy ninja films like the equally amazing Nine Deaths of the Ninja and any of the Godfrey Ho ones like Ninja Tiger or Ninja Terminator you will LOVE this!

The acting, the haircuts, the very very un-PC dialogue (Im not going into details for fear of being censored!), the swearing and the general awfulness make this an unintentional classic! If you are of a nervous disposition and are easily offended - dont watch this...its not for you.

How to sum it up? Well imagine Lethal Weapon - on a budget. Now halve that budget. And halve it again. In fact - get rid of the budget. This gives you an idea. Lethal Weapon crossed with the dodgiest Ninja film you have ever seen crossed with a bit of soft porn (nothing you wont see on TV these days though) crossed with some of the corniest lines and the dodgiest script you have ever seen.

In short - theres not too many women who will like this film (but there are probably a few). For a back from the pub film this is probably perfect. Its funny on your own. Watch it with others (who are like-minded) and you will probably be spitting beer all over the place laughing.

Its a classic. Dont forget you will need a DVD player capable of playing American (Region 1) films. This film will never be released again. Dont expect great picture and sound - its dodgy, VHS-like really. There are some very funny extras by the guy who apparently found this film. My advice is to watch his introduction - then watch the film - then listen to the commentary.

This isnt for everyone - but if you have the right sense of humour this will fast become one of your favourite dodgy films. For me this is right up there with Nine Deaths of the Ninja and Ninja Terminator in the all-time dodgy films.

Get it - you know you want to!

4.0 out of 5 stars What Nonsense, 29 Jan. 2011
By 
Mr. R. Domar (Wolves) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This is a brilliant kung fu action thriller with gratuitous nudity, gore and a high body count. In between the action and sex scenes there's a lot of funny dialogue when it's meant to be seriouas.
Actually it's not brilliant. The acting is poor, dialogue is terrible, scenes often make no sense, continuity is pretty much hit or miss but it's a fun film only because of the com by Joe Bob Briggs which makes this an event not to be missed.
Extras besides the com, interviews and stills. USA Release. Region 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars So bad it's awesome, 19 Feb. 2012

This is one of the best bad films I've ever seen. Unlike some bad movies there are no boring parts in this. Every scene is so incompetently shot it's amusing. Check out the clips on youtube. If you enjoy those you'll enjoy the whole film.

This review is from: Samurai Cop [DVD] [1989] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Good transfer of one of my favourite terrible movies, but it could have been better. Special features are lacking. Regardless, I'm very happy to add this to my collection. Plays on my PAL PS3 just fine.

This review is from: Samurai Cop [DVD] [1989] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Watched this in good company with a couple of beers.
The movie started a bit slowly but when it really begun... oh boy.
Absolutely hilarious flick packed with hard-to-follow-but-so-awesome action, bad one-liners and unexpected "sex" scenes.

Only complaint: the movie could use English subtitles what with the alcohol you might need to fully appreciate its genius.

1.0 out of 5 stars laughably bad, 25 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Samurai Cops was so bad it was laughable. From horrid start to horrid finish. Everything that could go wrong with movie making went wrong here: scriptwriting, acting, directing, sets, lighting, virtually everything. Funny.
