A movie that actually lives up to it's title.

Violent Cop is a film about a shady and brutal Japanese Police Inspector who's always at odds with his bosses and colleagues. One day he's assigned a new idealistic partner who's shocked out Kitano's unorthodox police procedures. Takeshi Kitano is the Violent Cop and he's very credible as the hard as nails s.o.b. He makes Dirty Harry look like a wuss, mean as a snake and does whatever he can to get either a confession or information out of an unwilling suspect. Not only does Kitano have a new partner to watch out for but he has to take care of his batty sister. Great film. If you like cop movies, then you'll love this one. Look for the uncut international version, I highly doubt you'll want to see this one cut. I like this picture because it keeps it's promise and delivers the goods.

Highly recommended for it's nihilism and ultra violence.

Originally the film was supposed to be a comedy.  Kitano did a lot of rewrites to the script in order to make it more action and drama oriented.

Violent Cop  is a 1989 Japanese film directed by and starring Takeshi Kitano. It was Kitano's directorial debut, and marked the beginning of his career as a filmmaker.
