The Last Cop – Action, Fun and More

This 2016 Japanese drama surfs not only the cop genre but also that of Rip Van Winkle. You know, waking up after a ‘long sleep’ as in Hibernatus , for example, a 1969 French-Italian film starring the one and only Louis de Funès.

There is also a Japanese film and I cannot recall its name nor that of the actor! Hopefully, someone will tell me on Quora.

However, The Last Cop is a remake of a German series

The Japanese remake is very entertaining and quite well made too. 

Another whacky angle in this drama is provided a most plain looking woman. This is the wife of the cop who has come out of a coma of many years. He finds her remarried. To another detective! But that’s not all: long ago, he’d won her in a fair fight with another friend. And so we have this absolutely ordinary looking woman who has something like three men in her life! It’s very funny to absorb and watch in action.

The hero’s sidekick is a well known actor: the versatile Masataka Kubota.

Since many seem to have seen Death Note (not in my favourite genres), he stars in it:

It’s such despair for me not to be able to access screenshots or links to sales of DVDs or anything else that can help me get you to love Japanese dramas as much as I do.

Another fantastic cop show is 7 Detectives or Keiji 7 nin.
