Maniac Cop 2 (1989)Review:
This sequel takes the story exactly where the first Maniac Cop left it, with the same characters (those still alive at least) and the same actors. Globally, Maniac Cop 2 is a good sequel because it does not simply duplicate the first movie but attempt to add a few elements to the story. The first half is a bit of monotonous repetition of the first movie but it takes a whole new dimension in the second half when Matt Cordell gets a new goal and sets up a completely unexpected new nightmare. The introduction of a second killer is also an interesting addition, as is the very different ending. All this makes this sequel as much fun to watch as the original. I only regretted how little is explained about Cordell’s background story, and what he is now (physically speaking).
The dirty New York atmosphere so characteristic of the first movie is still one of the best reason to watch this movie – so typical of William Lustig’s work. A compulsory watch if you have seen and liked the first Maniac Cop.
