Trivia

American actor Richard Conte was originally cast in the part of Commissario Walter Grandi. Conte however died shortly before filming began and production could not be halted. The first available actor for the part was Henry Silva. Silva at the time was mostly known for playing villains and killers so director Umberto Lenzi had to work hard to try to make him fit the character of a cop. See more »

Entertaining Lenzi crime
8 August 2004 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

This seems to be a very typical Italian crime film...and boy, do i love it. Ennio Morricone has a short, but killer instrumental tune going on at the very beginning of the film, setting the mood for what this movie is all about. We have the fine Tomas Milian playing a pathetic, gunhappy bastard who gets ticked off very easily and spends most of the movie killing the people he gets near. A high bodycount for mr. Milian here. Great boys...are you happy??? i know i am for owning this movie. I even have the soundtrack in my collection. Go see it boys!!! The American title for this movie "Almost human" is very misconceiving, as Milian in no sense seems like a human being. A translation of the Italian title is more correctly "Hate in Milano-the police can't shoot".
