Calling this film anything less than phenomenal would be injustice.
11 December 2011 | by See all my reviews

As soon as I popped my special collectors edition of SAMURAI COP into my VCR, no less than a few dozen bitches busted through my front door wanting sex. I of course gave them their sex, with this magnificent piece of artwork playing in the background. This film is a pussy-magnet in every sense of the phrase. If you don't immediately get a hand-job from your girlfriend, wife, or some random passerby while this movie is playing, you aren't a man and deserve to die. After watching this movie for the 14th consecutive time, i found myself being able to bench more than 16 times my own weight. True story. I would recommend this movie to anyone who wants to pack on an extra 45 lbs of muscle, or just learn anything about being a man.
