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>

Good crime drama
30 March 2008 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Dirty Harry like cop investigates the murder of a fellow cop and beats up and kills a good number of bad guys in the process.

Violent police drama keeps your attention focused thanks to an almost constant stream of beatings and shootings. Not the best film and certainly far from the worst, this is just a good solid action film for a rainy Sunday without the kids. The best thing is this is a regular in bargain bins for around a buck which, as entertainment goes is quite a bargain for a film as good as this.

Go get some popcorn and some sodas.
