Italian crime flick!
18 July 2002 | by (Stockholm, Sweden.) – See all my reviews

Milian plays a leatherjacket wearing(nice "cuckoos nest" woolen cap too) ex-cop and biker named Rambo(!!!). Rambo returns to Milan? to visit an old cop-friend. The friend is now working at a security company who protects companies from mafia- villains. Rambo gets employed by the company and therefore gets involved over his head in the struggle against the organized crime. An old mafia-family lead by ancient and blind Paterno (played exellent by legend Joseph Cotten) have teamed up with other gangsters lead by less cool but more sleazy Conti(a great Catenacci). The gangsters devote there freetime too car-jacking, kidnapping, dope-dealing and blackmail. Finally some of the gangsters kill Rambos copfriend and you know what that means reveeeenge!... I really like this movie! good characters (especially the crooks), good and realistic plot, great action, good motorcycle and car chases, and the music it´s mindblowing. We also gets an unforgettable fight inside a pool-hall(maybe a bit inspired by Coogans bluff). I want to have this movie-soundtrack now. Got this movie from my father back in 80´s and I recommend for anyone who likes 70´s crime movies...
