gonzoid car chases, gratuitous slo-mo squibs and full-blooded fisticuffs
24 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

While this is a late entry in the euro-crime cannon it's also a gem; director, Stelvio Massi & the estimable, Merli are said to have been great friends and this chemistry translates into a very watchable, violent and thrill-engorged crime thriller. Featuring a rare low-key performance from erstwhile tyro performer, merli adds much needed depth to his default two-dimensional stoic and vengeful police chief persona; and the characteristically rotund, Merola excels as the bovine, violent hood. massi films are generally solid, watchable affairs and 'hunted city' is no exception; particularly of note are his dynamic, savvy camera angles which eek as much tension as possible from scenarios that might strike one as wildly pedestrian in a lesser director's hand. All is present and correct in this quality actioner: gonzoid car chases, gratuitous slo-mo squibs and full-blooded fisticuffs...I, for one, found this merli/massi collaboration to be immensely entertaining.
