Trivia

All of the interiors in the film were shot before the exteriors, so the wounds on Franco Nero's face were invented before the actual beating had been shot. They later had to coordinate the beating to match the makeup he had had on while shooting the interiors. See more »

Goofs

After two young thugs hit Franco Nero's car and threaten him, a boom mike is reflected in their car as they drive off. See more »

One of the best movies from the Italian 70's
4 September 2003 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

Shot in the same year of the american "Deathwish" with Charles Bronson, has a similar plot but it results much more realistic and exciting. The great Franco Nero's performance and the brilliant music by the De Angelis brothers make of this an "absolutely must see" for all the fans of this kind of movies !
