an unreconstructed heft of bravura poliziotto action
By the 80's the halcyon days of the Italian poliziotto was on the wane, if not, it was pretty close to extinction; so it comes as a pleasant surprise to discover that the veteran euro-crime director and all-round exploitation don, Stelvio Massi had one more righteous movie up his sleeve. This German-Italian Co-production is an unreconstructed heft of explosive poliziotto action, that makes excellent use of its oppressive Berlin backdrop and delivers everything one expects from a Massi/Merli collaboration. "Poliziotti solitudine e rabbia" finds everyone's favorite mustache of vengeance, Maurizio Merli as an undercover cop in West Berlin; using his inimitable methods of cro magnon policing against the nefarious activities of a shadowy Mafioso blackmailing outfit. 'The Rebel' is highly recommended.
