Taut crime Italian flick.
10 February 2019 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

In the pure tradition of the Italian crime film industry from the seventies; brutal, bloody with sharp editing and powerful acting. An urban crime feature where a rough and tough police officer fights against the mob with all his strength. Nothing new, I admit, but so effective. I recommand you this rare film. Don't miss the death of one of the persons whom the mafia wants to get rid of; thrown thru a window from the twentieth floor. It is also question here of the connection between politics and high scale racketeers. Italians were really the best in that field. The lead cop character and actor are absolutely awesome, convincing at the most.
