Storyline

A detective sick and tired of the rampant crime and violence in his city, and constantly at odds with his superiors, is finally kicked out of the department for a "questionable" shooting of a vicious criminal. However, he is soon approached by a representative for a group of citizens who themselves are fed up with what they see as criminals going unpunished, and they make him an offer he may very well not refuse.

Violent and tough Eurocrime.
25 December 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

Criminal violence in Rome is increasing due to weak legislation and unscrupulous layers.The old methods are no use anymore...they are antiquated.So it's up to Inspector Betti(Maurizio Merli)to fight the rising crime.Thugs are everywhere:robbing,shooting,murdering and raping innocent victims."Roma Violenta" is an exciting slay ride full of nihilistic characters and outrageous violence.The direction by Marino Girolami of "Zombi Holocaust" fame is tight and effective,the car chase scene is mind-blowing and the soundtrack is pretty mellow.Maurizio Merli was so believable in the role that he went on to reprise it in many times before his death in 1989.A must-see for fans of Italian cult cinema.8 out of 10.
