Prepare to question everything you thought you knew about roundhouse kicks, thongs, katana beheadings - and good filmmaking - in the fantastically terrible straight-to-video Samurai Cop.

Joe (Matt Hannon, Sylvester Stallone’s one-time bodyguard) is the Samurai Cop, a rock of a man who will do literally whatever it takes to punish criminals—even if that means taking dozens of innocent lives in the process.

Teamed with a truly hilarious partner (Mark Frazer), Joe embarks on a mind-melting sex-and-violence-fueled adventure against evil ninjas, drug dealers! Directed by prolific Iranian ex-pat Amir Shervan, the reckless and outrageous Samurai Cop is a true treasure of the trash-action pantheon.
