Better than "The French Connection"....
12 September 2002 | by See all my reviews

....but that doesn't say much. Actually, it's a totally unexceptional crime story, but Enzo Castellari manages to uplift parts of it with his gimmicks and camera tricks. If Sergio Leone had directed a straight crime flick, the result might have been close to what Castellari achieves here. (**)
