Fast moving, varied and colourful, this is a violent, although not particularly bloody tale of gang against gang and police against gangs with renegade cop doing all the work. Maurizio Merli is that ex-cop here, looking much like Franco Nero and doing almost as well. John Saxon is fine as one gang leader and Thomas Milian (barely recognisable as the other). There is some debate as to who takes which part of the title but for my money Saxon is the 'cynic', Milian the 'rat' with Merli undoubtedly the 'fist', but see the movie and make up your own mind. Some nice set pieces and some humour also in the mix and if there is less emphasis on the girls in this one there is at least one most memorable and violent scene.
