One of my faveorite Cop movies!
14 January 2000 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is cool! It's about a man named Inspector Rizzo from Naples Italy. He has a nickname "Flatfoot" given to him from everyone in town and on the police force. He want's to keep drug dealing and prostitution out of his town. He refuses to carry a gun, he only carries his fists! His boss thinks that Flatfoot's methods of policing are "Unorthadox" and he requires that every officer must carry a gun. But Flatfoot still refuses. One of the better cop movies around and has a good opening scene. ( The guy on the roof shooting at the people in the street) It's north american title is " A fistfull of hell" if you ever think of renting this movie!

This movie gets 7/10
