On this week's episode of Failing Grade, we are tackling the cult classic, Samurai Cop. When the deadly Katana gang is taking over, there's only one police officer with luxurious enough hair to stop them! This is one of those movies that has to be seen to be believed but we do our best to explain it.
Then we move on to the 2001 film, Replicant. In this movie, Jean Claude Van Damme plays a deranged serial killer (are there any other kinds?) and Michael Rooker plays a police officer that has spent the last 3 years failing to catch him. Fortunately a mysterious government agency has a solution; they were able to recover some of the killer's blood so they used that to make a clone! Somehow this clone has genetic memory of the killings plus they re-sequenced his genes to make him partially telepathic somehow (science is not this film's strong point). It's up to Michael Rooker and Clone Van Damme to stop the killer before he strikes again.
