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 »

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 »

Taut and cynical thriller
22 January 2006 | by (Greenwich - London) – See all my reviews

Taut and cynical thriller with a good pace, throbbing soundtrack, decent cinematography and not a little bloody violence. Very much of the times this is a somewhat depressing tale of ruthless criminal activity and police corruption.

The not so pretty side of 70's Italy brought vividly to the screen with a workmanlike performance from Franco Nero and little more than sweet innocent looks from Barbara Bach.

In fact a little more involvement from the ladies would have made this that much more enjoyable but if it's non stop chasing and shooting done with some style you are after this is certainly your number.
