Trivia

Director Umberto Lenzi stated in an interview that his first meeting with Tomas Milian for this film was really difficult because Lenzi felt Milian didn't trust him. Milian had heard rumors that Lenzi was an impulsive, hotheaded director but in the end Lenzi felt that Milian got that he was the right director for the job. This started what Lenzi called a "love-hate" relationship between the two that would continue for a total of 7 films with the actor. See more »

Claustrophobic brilliant movie
18 January 2000 | by (torino, Italy) – See all my reviews

A claustrophobic brilliant movie, I think it's more about an italian social class disorder than milian being a criminal,his the regular working class guy pissed of about being poor, and in Milan more than any other region in Italy, the social class is very important, and very very present, when milian kills all those people, you feel bad for them, but on the other hand you can see his mission, and you feel for him, in the end when he pulls it off, you almost feel relieved, anyway this movie is a real movie just like "il Boss/wipeout" and it deserves to be watched, the only problem with this movie and "il boss/wipeout" is that after you see these movies every other movie will seriously bore you, and you'll find no depth in them. After I seeing these movies, personally, I couldn't watched anything else for at least 2 weeks, I tried, but I wasn't able to. This movie is powerfull and most of all real
