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

About the only thing I can say good about Milano Trema is that it has some nice shots of Milan in it. This Italian production with a native cast is a poor ripoff of some of our cop dramas like Bullitt or The Seven Ups or even the Dirty Harry series.
Luc Merenda an orthodox cop with a Dirty Harry style of doing business does one thing that Harry Callahan would never do, go undercover because too many criminals know his face. He is however suspended for an execution of a pair of escaped criminals.
After that his main booster the ever so tolerant police chief of Milan is assassinated by a criminal gang. Merenda goes undercover to find them.
The gang is headed by American expatriate Richard Conte who after playing Don Barzini in The Godfather played a lot of cheap grade z productions for a paycheck. He has the look of a man waiting for his paycheck to clear as he mouths his dialog.
There's a nice police chase similar to the one in Bullitt in this film. But all in all it's all stuff we've seen better on American cinema.
