Did You Know?

According to a DVD special feature, the crew were told that Oliver Reed would be finishing his scenes on a day four days after what would actually be his last day of filming. This was because crew on the film apparently had scores to settle with him and the false finish date was given to protect him.See more »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In one scene Fabio Testi's character refers to Paola Pitagora's character as Paola instead of Carlotta.See more »

Italian Action from the 70s- lovin' it, 13 July 2004
Author: ericdetrick2002 from Maryland

If you are a fan of Sergio Sollima then I don't have to tell you that you will enjoy this film. I am so glad that I have discovered Italian action films from the 1960s and 1970s. I only wish that I could see some of these films on the big screen. There is something special about these films.

Revolver takes the viewer on a sort of chase. There is elements of mystery and action, but during the course of the film the relationship between the two

characters, played by Oliver Reed and Fabio Testi, evolves in a way that brings in drama into the story. Like Sollima's other films, there is fast paced action, violence, and a little bit of sex.

There is a gray area between who is good and bad, and that is something

Sollima has stated in interviews. In fact he has said that he has always been a fan of bad guys because sometimes the good guys mess things up more in the

end then the bad guys. He shows that in Revolver.
