Storyline

Nico Geraldi is a tough undercover cop in the manner of Serpico. His rough and unkempt appearance belies his seriousness regarding crime and criminals. As a ring of pickpockets and thieves plagues Geraldi's city, he attempts to find the fences and criminal masterminds behind the thieves. Richard Russo is the crime boss. He successfully dodges the police, while he manages his criminal empire with cunning and ruthlessness. In the end, Geraldi must deal with Russo using unofficial means.

Jack Palance Needed Work
2 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Enjoyed this Italian Film, which had comedy, drama and plenty of gang-buster shootings and mob torture. Women seemed to get their clothes ripped off and also slapped in the face back and forth. There was some very clever old and young thieves who managed to rip off plenty of men and woman. Some of the police were former crooks and at times used this experience in their detective plans to catch the big mob fences, who did money laundering through out the country. Jack Palance of course played the king pin and was a bad guy who hid in an American Embassy. This is definitely a very low budget film, but great to see Jack Palance trying to make a few bucks.
