Lieutenant Vargas is assigned to infiltrate a smuggling ring that supplies weapons to the revolutionaries of Caracas, Venezuela. For that purpose, he poses as a wanted fugitive, but the gang fairly quickly finds out his true identity. And what do they do? They beat him up and leave him unguarded "to decide later" what to do with him. A pretty woman hides and heals him in her place, and before long he's ready to lead a massive attack on the gang's fortress. Rather stupid in its plotting, "Crossfire In Caracas" is distinguished only by the notably increased level of violence compared to other films of the same genre made around the same time; there are several brutal fights and the body count is well into the triple digits! The film is too long at over 100 minutes, but to be fair, if you can make it to the last half hour, it's all action from that point on. ** out of 4.
