Bristol Bad Film Club is going on the road… and we're bringing Samurai Cop to Coventry!

Imagine a low-budget version of Lethal Weapon where Mel Gibson spends most of his time being racist to the Japanese, attempts to sleep with anything that moves and walks around in his pants a lot. That’s Samurai Cop, but there is so much more to this cult film than that…

Described as “both the best and the worst action film ever”, Samurai Cop is an unintentionally hilarious action film that sees San Diego cop Joe ‘Samurai’ Marshall dispatched to stop the drug-trafficking Yakuza cartel – The Katana Gang.

Made in 1990 by Iranian film maker Amir Shervan, Samurai Cop is a perfect storm of 80s cop movie cliches, over-the-top dialogue, weird editing, goofy fight scenes (that seem to constantly switch location) and a soundtrack that sounds like it belongs in a SEGA MasterSystem game.

Today, Samurai Cop is often described in the same breath as infamous 'so bad, they're great' films like The Room and Birdemic: Shock and Terror and the Bristol Bad Film Club are bringing it to Coventry!

“The party aspect in this movie is spectacular. From the sheer cheese of the main character’s behaviour to the gratuitous amounts of nudity, everyone is guaranteed to get a laugh, or at least an awkward boner…” BetterWithPopcorn.com

“Amazingly hamfisted ineptitude… perhaps the most god-awful example of bungled, inept action movie filmmaking of the 1980s” Brian Lindsey, Eccentric Cinema

“Defies all logic. It’s both the best and worst action movie ever” Andrew Martin, Facebook.com/AmirShervan
