'Scorta,La' is a pointless and deceptive political thriller that really lacks force, intensity and good drama situations. A group of bodyguards is commited with the defense of a serious and honest judge that fights against the mob and the organized crime in South Italia. An interesting premise that receive a shallow treatment by Mr. Tognazzi and his screenwriters. The ending is inconclusive and completely not satisfactory. Some good footage on Sicilia. I give this a 5 (five).
