Who do you root for in a film like this? Vincenzo, the double crossing, woman beating hero who pawns his girlfriend's jewellery? Or the Godfather, the woman beating, smug crime lord? Or Erika Blanc, who's character absolutely never stops moaning during the entire film? Also, who described Erika Blanc as a 'sumptuous Italian Bambino?' More like a Ziggy Stardust era Bowie clone with boobs! Unnerving.

So this is lower tier Euro Crime stuff, what with the double crossing and the arms shipments and a hero you don't care for. Story is very mild, rather a lot of violence directed towards women, not much in the way of gunfights.

However, it looks very good, has a nice opening sequence, and most of it takes place in an Arab country which is a bit different from the norm. It's up to you what you think of the ending. Throw a couple of likable characters in here and it might have been better.
