Henry Silva seeks the death of a gang that killed his little daughter
26 January 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The review by "planktonrules" is of a different movie with a similar title that also stars Henry Silva, namely, "The Italian Connection" (1972), its original title being "La mala ordina". It is sometimes marketed as "The Man Hunt", which creates the confusion.

The movie under review here dates from 1975. Its title is "The Manhunt", the original title being "L'uomo della strada fa giustizia". That means "the man in the street does justice".

This is an OK poliziotesschi, but not particularly thrilling or outstanding. The main focus is on the changes in Silva's thinking as he interacts with the police detective, Silvano Tranquilli. The script is careful to develop these changes realistically as he meets one frustration after another. Of course, the story proceeds through a hunt. That's got some interesting features and locations, including an auto junk yard and a transvestite who assists Silva. These actions are mixed in with other unrelated instances of violence that Silva and his wife, Luciana Paluzzi, happen to witness or get involved with. Those are there to make a point about there being too much criminality in Milan with not enough police to keep it down and to spice up the film.

Fans of this genre will be happy to run across this film, even if it is not at the top of the list of favorites or best.
