Film Reviews: “Maniac Cop 3: Badge of Silence” (1993)

Image

Starring Robert Davi, and Jackie Earle Hayley.
Written by Larry Cohen (“It’s Alive 1-3″/ “The Stuff”/ “God Told Me To”)

Robert Davi returns as detective Sean McKinney. When a string of bizarre murders occur again and a close friend/fellow officer ends up in a coma, it becomes personal for McKinney. The unofficial investigation leads him to a dark voodoo priest, and the possibility that Maniac Cop Matt Cordel has been awakened!

This 3rd and final entry in the series almost feels more like a crime thriller than a horror film. Not as much action compared to part 2, but there’s an AWESOME car chase scene late in the film with the Maniac Cop on fire while driving! Also you can’t go wrong with Robert Davi as a revenge cop, and Jackie Earle Hayley as a crazy long haired thug. Worth checking out if you’ve seen the others.

2.5 out of 4.0 stars.
