Ty Hardin stars as a Yankee soldier who seeks revenge on the six killers who murdered his wife & child and burned his home. He tracks down and kills each man one by one until he finds the leader of the gang.
In Venice a detective is on the trail of a killer who commits a double murder (a married couple) then more grisly killings occur. sex, drugs, gore and perversions are ingredients of this sadistic and sleazy giallo.
'La mano Spietata della legge' (1973) is sadly a little-known and poorly documented euro-crime that merits re-discovery. That said, any high- octane Italian actioner from the early 70's swollen with a typically phat-sounding, grooved-out score from Stelvio Cipriani, and festooned with an especially muscular performance from Philippe Leroy is going to be anything but a time waster. In addition this zesty euro-crime effort also features tyro screen-gobbler Klaus Kinski who, surprisingly, turns in a somewhat restrained performance here as a blow torch-wielding hit-man; nevertheless still cutting a dashing, violent swathe through the proceedings in his hep-cat sunspex.
It might well have been this film that got me to re-view many other titles starring that most swarthy of enigmatic actors, Philippe Leroy...Methinks it it time for a Leroy retrospective!
