One Man Against The Organization (Sergio Grieco, 1975) **
8 May 2008 | by (Naxxar, Malta) – See all my reviews

Yet another lackluster poliziottesco featuring a fading Hollywood star (in this case, Stephen Boyd): actually, he supports nominal lead Howard Ross as a drug courier who decides to make a run with the money. Jess Franco regular Albert Dalbes is one of Ross’ associates/opponents, while the drugs were destined to an excitable Russian (who supplies some initial comic relief and then disappears altogether).

Among the ruses the hero adopts to make his passage safer is that of impersonating Special Agent Boyd – who has had his papers stolen by Ross’ girlfriend (Karin Schubert) while traveling on the same plane which was carrying the drug stash. As he happens to be after the organization himself, Boyd – rather than be cross with Ross {sic} – allows the latter to do most of the dirty work for him! At one point, however, Schubert is abducted, beaten and gang-raped by the vicious members the drug ring – with the latter scene filmed and fixed so that Ross can see it!!

The one novelty in the film is that the gang leader is, ostensibly, a rich lady with an attractive ‘lesbian’ secretary in tow; eventually, the former turns out to be a man in drag (though I must say that the make-up was pretty obvious) – an identity to which he reverts for the final getaway, with his accomplice hiding behind the vests of a nun! The film includes plenty of action – with an extended helicopter chase for the climax – but, all in all, Remy Julienne’s stunt-work here isn’t among the best on his track record; nevertheless, the pounding score by Luis Bacalov emerges as a definite asset.
