Why did you shoot the third part — the question of course is good. The second part was closed for all door, leaving unless the vague ending. But suddenly, Matt Cordell is not finished his work and strives to complete it? With such a beacon of hope for the third part, not knowing that all a blatant lie.

Police Kate no luck. In the robbery of the store she is wounded and falls in a coma. The situation worsens by the fact that the reporters staged the incident so that it kills the innocent, for her face severe punishment. In again returned from dead Matt Cordell decides to restore the good name ladies, killing those who guilty of her fate.

Interestingly, in the third part of the writers refused to the continuation of the stories banal revenge by composing a completely new plot from the old heroes. The result is deplorable.

Would be better if the writers then made a dead COP to punish the perpetrators of his own death, vypleska fury on bystanders. In this part Matt not engaged in such action. It turns out that our maniac controlled by some mystical force, controlled by a Voodoo shaman, which is a feeling that he's just stupid and banal ghoul, which, as and the beast Frankenstein, finds a bride and connects to her. Why was so to change the form of the mysterious vigilante in a police uniform, a good question.

Voltage and dynamic this film is very small, and really interesting scenes, you can count on the fingers of one hand — we were pleased with the shooting in hospital final chase. The other ninety per cent — conversations strange mystical scene. Murders and other violence are very small, making the film becomes very boring and is unlike the last part, but the maniac is not impressive.

The acting here looks like a strange as well. In General, the whole film draws on imagine Robert Davi, whose character is perfectly revealed in this part, why officer Sean McKinney becomes the main star of the film.

Need to remove the "Maniac COP 3" is not been. The aim of the writers was an attempt to reveal the inner world. the maniac and make like monster Frankenstein. They lost this problem, but was it worth it? Maniac COP coped with their business in the second part, from-for what it further adventures just does not make sense.

R. I. p. the world, Matt Cordell!

And here finally appeared in 1993 the final part of the adventures of the maniac COP Matt Cordell.

Honestly, the third part is not have to remove. The script is a bit stupid it turned out. Not only understand one thing, why would the priest of voodoo decided to resurrect Kordella from the grave after all he in the second part avenged, but the most strange for what was lost policewoman Katie Sillivan our maniac Cordello.

What about the very Kordella, then in this film he somewhere in the dark background are rare, especially at the time of the murder. Make-up I was generally impressed him that I think maybe even a monster or is that he Cordell.

The special effects and of course especially the last ten minutes of the film.

The actors play well, especially thanks to Robert Davi and Caitlin Dulany film and looks. Robert Davi plays even better than in the second part. Robert Z Dar of course was disappointed with this has been not the maniac COP.

Soundtrack Joel goldsmith, I was more pleased than Jay Chattaway. Music is more mystical it turned out that very suitable to the film.

In the end I want to say that the film "Maniac COP 3: badge of silence" could not to remove generally only spoil the film.

In the end, "Maniac COP" — slasher series ended on the third part, — showed the world that there is at the same time and a conscientious attitude to your universe in the same time the mediocre. The Director of the entire trilogy was William Lustig, and permanent writer — Larry Cohen, however, this fact does not prevent each of the three films of the trilogy to be completely different films.

The first part was brutal and bloody slasher. In her maniac COP Matt Cordell was shown to the form of the vengeful people of a serial killer who killed people due to the fact that it was framed and put in prison, where he had to make his first death from the killers, whom he himself this jail led, protecting the peace and the peaceful life of the citizens of the city. The second part reminded more of the movies Terminator. In her Matt Kordella at some point you begin to regret. In the sequel, he killed people in batches and generally one of its kind, resembled an invincible death machine, the kind of Jason Voorhees without mask in police uniforms. The third part — rather bloody Thriller with elements of Thriller and detective. In her Matt Cordell after his next death, returned from dead, but this time only kills those people who stand up for his way — new mission this time, as not strange related to charity.

Intolerable in each film of the trilogy to see the maniac in new look. I refuse to understand the motives of Larry Cohen. The perfect image of Matt Cordella was created in the scenario of the first film, but what was the need to constantly tweak the character of a ruthless killer, the goal of its bloody deeds, and, in fact, he style of the film? The sequel was still forgivable to a sharp correction, but trikvel went further, linking the universe of "Maniac COP" with mysticism and other nonsense, which are more typical Thriller than a serious slasher. Yes, trikvela still intriguing, but none of those the sensations that appeared in watching the original movie and the second part. Atmosphere is it sags at this film is back love story, but the old tension is observed. Moreover — it is completely absent and is only included in some moments in which the film is really able to please slasherman, but no more.

Also appeared in trikvele scenes and stunts, which usually are present in the rebels, but not in the slasher. But with the motives of a killer this time came bobble. Some things did not logical, but they won't — in order to ruin you fun (fun right?) from watching the movie. Nicely, the movie does not deserve scores above six points, but in one Larry Cohen does not deny. It carefully watched the fate of Matt Cordella and from the sequel in the sequel postponed the development of the previous parts. With the point of view of the integrity of the universe for trikvel you can enjoy. Often trikvela look white crows on the background of the previous parts, but with the "Maniac COP" is not like this happened. The film is a direct continuation of the second part, which was a direct continuation of the first. Any innuendo at the transitions between the parts in the universe of "Maniac COP" simply no, and because the film does not want to reduce the rating. Yeah and the presence of trikvele heroes from the second part is also not can not good.

Verdict. At all of his offensive shortcomings and the stylistic detachment from the previous two parts, "Maniac COP 3: badge of silence" — it's still bloody, brutal slasher with the original maniac in the role of the killer. Fans of the mystical trikvel, I guess I'll have at the taste.
