Storyline

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 Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Thoroughly Engaging Italian Police Action Flick
15 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A renegade Italian cop fears that the law is too restricted when trying to fight lawless criminals, especially after seeing a prisoner escape and kill more people. Why send him back to prison when he already had a life sentence? All future murders are free of charge. Then, a high-ranking cop is killed on the street and the renegade is given an audience -- he is free to fight crime in his own way, which is a bit reckless.

I've seen reviews compare this film to "Dirty Harry", which seems about right. If anything, the officer in this film goes beyond what Clint Eastwood's character would do. Working with prostitutes, infiltrating a crime syndicate -- even robbing a bank with them, resulting in the death of a pregnant woman. The title "violent professionals" really sums it up... though, whether this refers to the cop or the criminals is left ambiguous.

After seeing another film from the box set I retrieved this from ("Kung Fu Punch of Death") I had very low expectations. But, ignoring the low production value that runs rampant in Italian films, the story and action were pretty amazing. There's a car chase scene that can give "French Connection" a run for its money. If you can tolerate cheap films, this is a truly great crime film.

Would I watch this again? Sure I would. I'd love it if someone would clean up the picture, sound and give me subtitles instead of dubbing... but for what the film cost me I more than got my money's worth on it. Don't be afraid to watch "Violent Professionals".
