Very good action movie.
8 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Highly efficient, high octave stuff from director Lenzi and I'm not really sure why I'm not rating it higher. Thing is, I think, there maybe is not quite enough sex and violence! Actually there is violence a plenty, all through the film actually, but is is mainly guns and fists and the really outrageous and gory kills are shown so briefly that their impact is somewhat muted. Good job too, some may say, but this is a Lenzi pic and I was rather surprised. Nevertheless, this is violent action all the way and mostly out on the crowded, Naples streets. Colourful location shooting and some amazingly well shot street chases, on foot by car and motorbike. Very good action movie.
