Majestyk’s review published on Letterboxd:
Fun B-movie with a lot of cheesy moments. However, it's very entertaining and there are clever moments hidden here and there. A cop is killing innocent people and there is anger brewing with the civilians. That's it.
There are a lot of killings in this movie. While nothing special, they are entertaining. The movie, dispute it's budget, is shot really well. It does have a sleazy style at times but there are also some fine moments filmed in a pretty good way. The soundtrack is typical 80's and it is glorious. A lot of B-name actors with familiar faces and everything is complete.
Maniac Cop is a fun and entertaining movie. As long as you know what it is and don't expect too much.
