Pretty cool italian crime movie
13 January 2004 | by (Finland) – See all my reviews

I was quite surprised after I watched this one. I've seen italian crime movie before too, and they didn't differ from any other crime movies as I had heard. But this one is is certainly exception. Deodato makes a great crime movie with lost of action, good characters and - of course - some gore. Unfortunately version I saw was slighly cutted, not much but as much as it gave me reason to try to find some other version of this movie. Still haven't got any luck with that. But most of gory scenes were there, I just hope this one will be released on DVD in fully uncut version someday.

Overall, I would give this great crime-flick 8½ out of 10. You'll know the reason why, when you view it. recommended!!!
