Quality Merli film
30 April 2008 | by (Eugene, Oregon) – See all my reviews

Maurizio Merli turns in his standard hard-nosed/violent cop routine in this one.

The score is solid, story is easy to follow and there's a fantastic motorcycle chase toward the end.

It's not quite as good as Convoy Busters or High Crimes but you're better off watching this than something like Cannibal Holocaust.

Merli is no Franco Nero but his not-so-subtle acting is more than made up with his charm and delightful mustache.

Not sure if this is part of the 'A Mano Armata' series but it certainly could be.

If you're a fan of the Polizio genre this one should sate your appetite.
