Sgt.Kabukiman NYPD

Among the many unlikely heroes of "B's", we must admit that an absolutely place of honor, is reserved to Sergeant Kabukiman of New York Police Department. An idol.

He is the protagonist of the movie "Sgt Kabukiman NYPD Blue", by the legendary Troma, and he is at the centre is of an irresistible irreverent satire against crime, action movies, Japanese traditions and in small part horror movie. Compared to his close friend Toxic Avenger, Kabukiman, is a more accessible comedy more accessible, less zany, more clownish. The result is a film that can reach a wider audience, a film that avoids the delirium of the mythical lumpy hero, which of course, we adore too.

The brand Troma is absolutely clearly visible, with its proverbial "low budget" made of reused scenes, mistakes and an endless array of  trash things that make this film a real cult.

Kabukiman is the story of a loser police officer who is in the wrong place at the wrong time.

After a lot 'of time the astral alignment of some planets and some strange ritual, like riding a jaguar, could allow the evil to rule the world. An ancient Japanese family, know that, they are the part of an ensemble of actors, great artists of the Kabuki theater, which for centuries has been passed down the mighty powers kabuki and while there, watches over the world. But Reginald Stewart a mega industrial who wants to rule the world (a mix between Berlusconi and Bush), knows these powers, and wants to steal the kabuki power

The ideal moment for this theft is a representation in which the tycoon and his men massacred the actors on stage. But the loser policement Harry Griswold is the wrong place and helping an actor wounded take the kabuki's power.

The good Harry then became the powerful Kabukiman who fights the evil, among various problems (style TV show The Greatest American Hero), with sushi, fans, chopsticks and a few moves of kung fu, for the most important occasions, dressed (transformed) in kabuki actor.

A mix of styles perfectly successful that gives some memorable scenes demented, as the erroneous transformation in clown or even air sickness that affects Kabukiman during the flight.

Memorable character, Kabukiman which has been a success so huge as to be cited often in other films of the production house of New Jersey and especially reworked and used in Toxic Avenger where figures to be a close friend (a bit 'too much, we might say watching the episode IV) of the great toxic hero.
