"Ok, so if you have a twisted sense of humor, like maybe you love to watch train wrecks or fat kids try to jump hurdles, you'll get a kick out of this flick. This is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. People tend to think I like bad movies, that's actually not true. The companion movie to this one, Omega Cop, (a prequel I assume)is not funny at all. In fact it's incredibly boring.
Karate Cop however is a champ.
The first thing you will notice is that people's names keep repeating in the opening credits, just their jobs change. This movie stars many of the same people as Omega Cop, but switches the roles up. Ronald L. Marchini is once again "John Travis" fighting as the last member of the "special police" left alive in a world full of mad max style gangs. It's full of ridiculous chracters, really horrible script writing, impossible action sequences, and oh yeah, David Carradine makes a cameo as the owner of a Honkey Tonk bar serving stupid huge bowls of "Rabbit Stew".
One of the funniest things about this flick is the soundtrack, it's all homemade and really really bad. But not like bad synthesizer music, well there's a lil of that too. It's like a few people got drunk, went out to the garage and wrote some songs for Marchini to kick butt to. But you have to understand why this movie is funny. It's funny because everyone involved is completely serious and absolutely trying their complete level best to make a good feature. And it's so freakin horrible!! That's what's funny, think William Hung, American Idol. This thing is also loaded with 80's style awesome one liners.
Plot premise- For those that care,
The story takes place at some undifined point in the future where gangs rule the earth and chase women all over the place trying to capture them as slaves. Enter John Travis (Marchini) and his dog. Travis is the last cop alive and enters the movie by rescuing "Rachel" from one of the gangs. In her gratitude she offers Travis a "hot meal." On the way to her place, of course, they are attacked by a gang of leperous bums with shopping cart bombs, broken pallets, and a lisping leader with a whip named "Snake." It grows from there. Eventually he has to fight everybody and save the girl and what not, and of course collect crystals from religous nuts who are into human sacrifice to repair a teleporter to save a kabillion kids or some kakamanie crap. But of course the bad guys want the crystals too so they can transport drugs."
