Robust entry in the violent euro-crime cannon
24 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

For some inexplicable reason 'Gang War in Naples' (aka) Camorra remains an obscure cinematic prospect; and while the gifted director Pasquale Squitieri has fortified this undeniably robust mafiosi actioner with many zesty set pieces, it is, sadly, one of myriad unseen Italian Euro Crime efforts of th 1970's; which is a great shame, since the nifty, two-fisted charms of 'Camorra' are undiluted.

Admittedly the ubiquitous 'thug rising up the ranks of the cosa nostra' theme is a little uninspired; but the hackneyed narrative is emboldened considerably by the welcome inclusion of that most magnetic and handsome of Italian leading men, Fabio Testi; who plays the scheming and violent hoodlum, Tonino Rosso with great elan; thus far, I have yet to see a lackluster performance from this swarthy-eyed devil! 'Gang War in Naples' (aka) Camorra is an unashamed crowd-pleaser; with its success as solid late night entertainment due in no small part to the luminous charisma of Testi, and Pasquale injects much rigor in what is ostensibly a tired premise. Good stuff! And mine's a J&B rocks!
