THE CYNIC, THE RAT AND THE FIST is an excellent Italian police film directed by genre meister Umberto Lenzi. Despite his cannibal movies notority this is what Lenzi is really best at. Stylish, well scripted, with catchy scores and starring tough guys like Tomas Milian, Maurizio Merli, John Saxon, Henry Silva and other genre vets his police films always offer great entertainment. The plot (as in his other films) isn't very important, but has basically something to do with tough cop Merli hunting down and beating up criminals, while dodging counterattacks from gangsters Milian and Saxon.
