Caveat emptor

Author: afhick from Dubai
25 September 2005

Little Joe is still beautiful, but his character is plug ugly. There is little positive to say about Pierro, except perhaps that he vomits in sympathy after inviting his buddies to gang rape his girlfriend (she has the bad taste to get pregnant). Pierro's a bit of a punk, you see, and bodies seem to pile up in his vicinity. Martin Balsam and Rossano Brazzi play the feckless adults in his life, one a police chief, the other a priest. They get to speak in their own voices, but, for some reason Joe is dubbed. He'd play a mute a year or two later in "Black Moon," but on the whole, Italy wasn't very kind to Andy's superstar. He doesn't even get to appear naked in "Season for Assassins." The action scenes are the best. There's a terrifying joyride at the beginning of the film, and a car chase at the end. The short wave relay scene, involving a man in braces who must climb a stairway to alert the police of a robbery in his house, is suspenseful. But none of it adds up to much. Completists will want to see it for Joe. Others beware.
