Henry Silva escapes prison to pull a big bucks scheme
18 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"L'insolent" (1973) stars Henry Silva in a substantial leading role, and that's why I watched this film. I always enjoy his appearances, supporting or leading. He's in fine form in this gangster story that evolves into a two-sided payback story. The story has some strong points: a neat prison escape, a robbery of gold from a van, and double crosses. The direction and script, however, both have noticeable weaknesses that undermine the film, causing it to go flat too often and lose credibility. My opinion differs greatly from those who consider this some sort of gem. The IMDb rating of 5.4 is closer to the reality that this is a subpar movie, even within its gangster genre and Eurocrime movies. "Johnny Cool" (1963) is a far, far better film with Silva and so are "The Italian Connection" (1973) aka "La Mala Ordina" and "Il Boss" (1973).
