Flowers that are not exactly blazing!
2 August 2008 | by (Beverley Hills, England) – See all my reviews

The Polizi genre is generally best known for it's entertainment value; and it is with that in mind that I say that I'm not surprised that Blazing Flowers is not one of the best known films in the genre; and the reason for that is down to the fact that the film is really rather boring. The plot itself is sleazy enough and we focus on several shady areas of society; including drugs and prostitution, but the story is rather dull and the characters are not interesting enough to hold things together. The main character is a cop played by prolific Italian star George Hilton, and he has a grudge against a local crime boss and so pairs up with an ex-con in order to stop the criminal. The plot basically plods along and the audience is given plenty of opportunities to get bored. There's very little in the way of action and only the odd car chase here and there gets things going, and it's not enough. George Hilton doesn't give his best performance either and helps to instill the movie's place as a failure. I've not really got anything more to say about this film. I have to say I'm a big fan of the genre and that's why I saw it - but in case you're not a big fan, you can feel free to skip this one!
