When Milano police lieutenant Giorga's chief is murdered by an organized crime ring, he vows to avenge his boss's death. Going undercover to continue the chief's investigation, he plans to take over a pimping outfit and then proceed to beat up enough low-level thugs until the big guys in the crime ring take notice of him, letting him get close enough to uncover their secrets. Should this unorthodox method actually work, he still must take down the entire organization single-handed. Written by

Luc Merenda: The dapper vendor of death; Euro-Crime's deadliest fashonista.
'Violent Professionals' is another ball-busting euro-crime title that appears on many a 'best of' threads and it's not hard to see why. Its continued success is due in no small part to the gleeful celebration of gratuitous violence that adds so much pep to the exploitation oeuvre of director, Sergio Martino. This snub-nosed poliziottto is a resounding keeper; while Luc 'smart hair of death' Merenda lacked the obvious barbarian machismo of, Nero & Merli, he cuts a svelte, dashing figure amongst all the under cranked vehicular slaughter, and Merenda always manages to emerge from dispatching any number of ill-bred thugs with his luxurious thatch of impossibly immaculate hair intact; for me, Luc Merenda will always remain the suave destroyer, a dapper vendor of death, Euro-Crime's deadliest fashonista.
