RiffTrax Live: Samurai Cop

NOTE: Contains some R-rated language, violence, and unfortunate banana hammocks!

Please choose a format above.

RiffTrax takes on one of the most loved Z-grade action films of the early 90s: Samurai Cop.

The cop they call Samurai takes himself and his fabulous hair (really, it is an amazing thing to behold) to Los Angeles from a faraway land they call San Diego to bust up a gang whose stated goal is putting someone’s head on their piano. Samurai and his partner, whose main task is to shamelessly mug to the camera, run up against MST3K fan-favorite Robert Z’dar for some insanely awful and hilarious fight scenes.

Decapitations, explosions, poorly subbed in stunt doubles, mangled dialogue, prominent lion heads, and unfortunate banana hammocks abound in this extremely eighties-y nineties movie.

Join Mike, Kevin, Bill, and Alfonso Rafael Federico Sebastian for RiffTrax Live: Samurai Cop!
