Storyline

In the late 1970s and early 80s, assassinations in Sicily get the attention of Communist deputy, Pio La Torre, who appeals to General Carlo Alberto Dalla Chiesa to become prefect in Palermo and take on the Mafia. Dalla Chiesa approaches the job with the same focus and methods he used in hunting down the Red Brigade. His sweetheart, the much-younger Setti Carraro (everyone calls her Emanuela), wants to be with him in Palermo, but he sends her away, knowing he is in danger. Then, a few months into office, he asks her to marry him, and he tries to be both husband and investigator. Meanwhile, the Mafia bankers are feeling the heat, and they start with La Torre.

Repetitive ambush movie
1 April 2000 | by See all my reviews



Don't look for too many people to review this movie. It is simply difficult to watch from beginning to end.

Cold, distant, impersonal and repetitive. The most interesting thing about this movie is seeing the assorted guns used. Sadly, they all sound the same when fired. John Woo, this is NOT.
