Karate Cop (1991).
This movie contains no (or very limited amounts of) karate. Perhaps that is why it has an alternative title on iMDB, which is ‘Dragon Cop’. I think that if I were to go back and watch this movie again very carefully I might be able to find more evidence of a dragon than of karate. But not very much, and I don’t intend to go back and watch this movie again.
It is the future and there is one cop left. No, I don’t know why, please don’t ask. Nor do I truly understand why he rode around in an old police car with a small dog, stumbling across mysterious women in need of rescue from a post-apocalyptic warlord (who runs a brutal hand-to-hand combat arena) along with an isolated troupe of tough-but-vulnerable feral children. Sadly, John Travis is a very, very poor man’s Max Rockatansky. No, not even when he was played by Mel Gibson. No, not even then, no.
Nor do I understand why the Karate Cop ended up on a quest to retrieve a crystal that would power a teleportation device that would take everyone to safety. Nor did he. Nor did anyone seem to know exactly where the teleportation device actually took everyone. I like to think this was the prequel to the movie Doom. Which I liked a lot more than I liked this movie. Even though this was a Rifftrax.
