A waste of time
In yet another post-apocalyptic future, a cop works to bust up a band of slave traders and save a few women along the way.
In all honesty, Omega Cop probably deserves a 1/10, but it's saved from that rating because it was so stupid in parts I was mildly entertainined on occasion. So what very little entertainment I got out of this thing was purely unintended. Star Ronald Marchini may have been a martial arts expert, but it didn't translate well to the screen. He's too wooden and unnatural. The rest of the movie is filled with equally poor acting, poor special effects, poor fight choreography, and poor everything else. And I'm convinced that Adam West had no idea what movie he was making. His character is so out of touch with the action in the rest of the film, it was often laugh-out-loud funny. Finally, I sort of felt sorry for Stuart Whitman. He made some bad career decisions, but this might have been the worst. Did he need a job this bad?
The makers of Omega Cop didn't try real hard on the whole post-apocalyptic thing. People with dirty faces, weird haircuts, and trash blowing across an empty parking lot was hardly convincing and just plain lazy.
