''special cop in action' is demonstratively one of the all-time great euro crime epics!'
The uber macho and super-svelte pugilist, Maurizio Merli reprises his incendiary role as the maverick, all fists blazin', skin-tight shirt wearin', Commisario Betti for yet another gonzoid installment of rabidly hard-boiled Italian poliziottesci action. craven, ill-dressed thugs are foolhardy enough to attempt the kidnapping of a group of school children on Merli's watch which unleashes a deluge of exhilarating retribution from the inimitable, golden-haired paragon of righteous vengeance, Commisario Betti; whose zero tolerance; throw jaw-mashing roundhouses an' ask questions later modus operandi proves more than adequate when called to throw down with his arch nemesis, Albertini; played with obvious glee by another legendary euro-crime alumnus; the ever- lithe, John Saxon. 'special cop in action' is demonstratively one of the all-time great euro crime epics, galvanized by a riot of killer set pieces, made all the more deliriously entertaining by Franco Micalizzi's gritty, funkier-than-thou score; emphatic crime funk par excellence.
