Borsalino and Co. begins with the funeral of Jean-Paul Belmondo's character from the first film, leaving Alain Delon to hold the fort almost single-handed, and the results aren't as entertaining as he could be as he swears revenge and finds himself on the losing side of a gang war with a gang of Italian fascists looking to destabilise the country through crime and drugs, with Marseilles a natural starting point. The choice of villains are interesting, as are their weapons of choice they prefer to kill underlings and employees (even blowing up a bad music hall comic in the middle of his act: a bit redundant considering he was clearly dying long before the bomb went off) while publicly humiliating their bosses but the film never really rises above the average. There's plenty of stylish décor and sharp suits, a couple of decent shootouts but not much fun (it's an hour before Claude Bolling's famous theme from the first film is heard), so it's no surprise that the US-set sequel promised by the end title never materialised. The poor standards conversion transfer on Kino's region 1 DVD doesn't help matters either.
