Plenty of style but not much fun
14 August 2010 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

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.
