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

This was my first taste of the Italian police movie sub-genre of the Seventies (if I'm honest I'd have to say I didn't even know there was such a sub-genre) and I can't remember being so bored by a film so filled with gunplay and car chases. Perhaps it's because I watched it at six in the morning after being unable to sleep, or maybe it's because of the lousy dubbing but, whatever the reason, this very obvious Dirty Harry rip-off had little to offer.
Luc Merenda is too much of a pretty boy to make a convincing enough anti-hero. He looks more like a Dirty Harry sidekick who gets killed in the first reel than a gritty tough guy, and his style of acting is too bland to draw the viewer in. The storyline is convoluted although the plot is actually quite simple and its twist becomes increasingly obvious as the film runs down. There are a couple of good car chases, and not many people get to beat up Richard Conte twice in one movie, but otherwise all this flick did for me was make a bout of insomnia that much worse.
