''Poliziotto Sprint' has become one of my all-time fave Massi/Merli collaborations'
After recently watching the above I can say with utter authority that 'Poliziotto Sprint' has become one of my all-time fave Massi/Merli collaborations. Contrary to a few Luke-warm reviews (not entirely sure if they were watching the same film as me) I found Merli's sans mustache speed drivin' copper to be entirely riveting creation, and the plentiful display of bravura stunt driving is second to none; all that and a sweet funky soundtrack by maestro Cipriani and I was left giddy with boys-own excitement and wondered why this marvelous actioner remains such a frustratingly obscure title. Personally all the Merli/Massi titles should be made available in pristine prints, as Massi was a superior craftsman and Maurizio Merli is the definition of Italian hard boiled cool. (He looks very dapper in his skinny-fit denim shirt and snug leather jacket)
