Director Umberto Lenzi who also created other classic flicks, Women from Deep River 1981, Eaten Alive! 1980 and Man from Deep River 1972 and another classic Italian crime flick, Rome Armed to the Teeth 1976 has created another gem in Violent Protection.

Starring Maurizio Merli who was also in other classic Italian crime flicks, Violent Rome 1975 and Umberto Lenzi's Rome Armed to the Teeth.

Also starring John Saxon who has also been in other classic flicks, From Dusk Till Dawn 1996, Animal Instincts 1992, A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors 1987, A Nightmare on Elm Street 1984, Tenebre 1982 and Black Christmas 1974.

I enjoyed the violence and car chase scenes.

If you enjoyed this as much as I did then check out other classic Italian crime flicks, Blood and Black Lace 1964, The Cat o' Nine Tails 1971, The Godfather 1972, The Godfather: Part II 1974, Weapons of Death 1977, Beast with a Gun 1977 and High Crime 1973.
