Storyline

A young American businessman, named Larry, travels to Italy to visit his girlfriend Jamie Lee only to find her missing. In his attempts to find her, Larry realizes that she may have been murdered by one faction of two rival mafia families battling each other for Genoa's crime empire centering on a ruthless don, named Nerescu, whom controls the drug trade and is fighting Madame Positano whom controls the prostitutes. Larry soon gets caught in the middle of it all, unless a reluctant local hotel manager, named Ute, and a streetwalker named Bella Blu can come to his help. But who can be trusted?

weak
14 December 2002 | by (Midwest, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a weak movie. Not worth seeing and that includes all you bodybuilding fans: Franco Columbo being a former Mr. Olympia winner (I saw him win in Columbus, Ohio in 1976 and again in 1981). There are better movies to see if you're looking for Traci Lords. . . and other than Franco and Traci there is absolutely no reason to watch this.
