To deal with the problem, the Los Angeles Police Department enlists the help of an expert: Detective Joe Marshall, an avid Japanophile trained in the way of the sword and the ancient Bushido code of conduct. As a result, protected by the unbreakable code of silence of the feared Yakuza, Katana boss Fuji Fujiyama and his lethal right-hand man Yamashita wage war on anyone who stands in their way. Joe and his new partner, Officer Frank Washington have no other choice but to bring out the big guns. Can Samurai Cop put an end to Fujiyama’s reign of terror?
Plot: When Japanese organized crime imbeds itself within LA, the police turn to one man to take down the deadly Yakuza — Joe Marshall, aka “The Samurai.” With his fearless swagger and rock hard jaw, The Samurai tears a two-fisted hole through the mob and doesn’t stop until the job is done.

Bad but entertaining
Samurai Cop is a movie that is bad on so many levels that it’s difficult to know where to begin. First of all, the acting performances are below average and lead actor Mathew Karedas seems to only have one facial expression. The plot is everything but clever, extremely predictable and could be described as almost childish. The dialogues are thin, unconvincing and often performed in poor English because the script was written by Iranian director Amir Shervan who didn’t have much experience. The female characters in this movie are all stupidly obsessed with sex and the male characters try to look cool on purpose which makes them look like complete idiots. The camera techniques are often terrible because characters who are talking are sometimes out of frame or picture. Technicians are sometimes visible in the reflections of sunglasses or as shadows in a small room. There are numerous continuity mistakes with people wearing sunglasses in one cut and not wearing them in the next cut four seconds later, hospital rooms being filled with people that have mysteriously vanished five seconds later and people being asked to come from New York City to Los Angeles who are suddenly present a few minutes later as if they had taken a rocket ride. The locations of this film are also boring and mostly consist of exchangeable alleys, random intersections and cheap restaurants. The worst part about the movie is that the director forgot to shoot some important scenes and asked the different actors to come together again to finish the film about four months after it had already been finished. The problem here is that our static lead actor Mathew Karedas cut his long hair after the movie had been completed and had to wear a wig to avoid continuity errors. The problem is that this wig looks extremely fake and is even pulled off his head in a fight Scene if you watch closely which is the cherry on the cake of this goofy b-movie.
You might wonder why this film still deserved a generous five out of ten points. The answer is quite obvious. This film is so bad that it’s almost good again. It’s quite amusing to catch all the obvious mistakes. The film is unpredictable in its goofy weirdness. A nice drinking game invented by two German comedians specifically for this movie consists of drinking a shot of alcohol each time the main character’s wig is visible.
To be fair though, it’s a quite entertaining movie with a lot of car chases and fight scenes with bare hands, pistols, swords and improvised weapons. The movie also includes several soft porn scenes and a shallow love story that gives us a break from all the action. I was never bored by this movie because of its vivid flow. Most action movies these days either bore with complicated background stories, endless dialogues and take themselves way too serious or are filled with exchangeable CGI effects and enormous plot holes in unnecessary sequels. From that point of view, Samurai Cop is almost refreshingly grounded and unpretentious.
Fans of old-school action b-movies could be very well entertained by Samurai Cop and can give this film a shot if they are open to have some fun. My advice would be to invite some friends over while watching this film. Despite its numerous obvious flaws, Samurai Cop is still overall an average movie and not among the worst films I have ever watched like so many other people claim.
He’s a cop and a samurai, he’s samurai cop!
This film is a bit of a ripoff of Lethal Weapon if I had to compare it to something. A completely off the wall version of Lethal Weapon, even more so than actual Lethal Weapon parody Loaded Weapon! At times it almost seems like it is a parody, I mean no police chief would sanction a bloodbath and act like the one here does. The action is a bit confusing at times as the shootouts are the type where you cannot tell where everyone is in relationship to one another and at times they fight with swords as they have to justify that samurai in the title. Still, while not a good film, it was strangely entertaining too.
The story, Joe is a special police officer who was trained in Japan. He is on loan from San Diego to stop a ruthless Japanese guy who runs an organization called the katana, though strangely this right hand man is not Japanese, but rather Robert Z’Dar, who looks pretty cool with a beard. Seriously, dude should have sported one more often. Well, they have multiple clashes with said gang and surprisingly the Japanese mob type guy cannot hire really good assassins, but rather dudes who look like they should be backup dancers in music videos from the 80’s; meanwhile, Joe falls for a girl that the Japanese guy likes!
The movie would have been better had we had a less dorky looking hero. Dude looks like he is wearing a wig and we have to witness him in a speedo! His partner just stands around and shoots people before Joe has a chance to fight them and does half hearted quips. Z’Dar though, is taking the role deadly serious and therefore comes out ahead quite nicely. I was actually rooting for him during that last fight!
So, the film is a bit campy and cheesy, but I would definitely put it in the so bad it is good category. I mean, at one point you get to see a guy’s arm chopped off so yeah it has its awesome moments! It is also just too insane to be good and the shootouts near the end totally suck because you literally cannot tell who is shooting who. They also really display this fat dude in a t-shirt being killed as he gets shot, tries to aim his gun, gets shot again and then falls so softly. Basically, though, you will not be bored and you will enjoy yourself as you watch this poor Lethal Weapon imitation scamper across the screen!
