standard minor eurocrime with the distinction of large Luciano Rossi role
2 July 2008 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Let me start off by stating that this is a name-only sequel to COLT 38 SPECIAL SQUAD. None of the same characters appear... plus I don't think I remember there even being a colt 38 anywhere in the movie. Early-career Antonio Sabato certainly lacks the charm of his "unhinged" comedic later roles in action movies like FUGA DAL BRONX. In this film he plays a really by-the-numbers police inspector devoid of any charisma.

I don't know who wrote the plot synopsis here but I doubt they watched the same movie I watched. The plot vaguely follows Sabato as the usual trenchcoat-clad angry cop in charge of the anti-racket with a loose-cannon single-dad sidekick Giampiero Albertini. He's also aided by a pair of trigger-happy motorcycle plainclothes cops, one of whom played by Max Delys from YOUNG VIOLENT DESPERATE. The bad guys this time around are a shady but overall unthreatening protection gang led by reclusive millionaire Luciano Rossi. The last third of the film follows a neat (but brief) car chase and a tense hostage standoff in a boarding school.

While this film has standard performances and creative photography, it suffers from an awfully slow pace through its first half and an overly familiar-feeling second half. There's practically no character development and the actions is scenes few-and-far-between. However, the film is sharply written, directed, and feels a lot classier and more fun than most other non-Castellari/Lenzi 70's Italian crime films.

The main reason to watch is to see Luciano Rossi in a rare turn as the lead antagonist. He puts in a real authentic-feeling greasy slimeball performance, especially toward the end where he gets some decent screen time to steadily go more and more nuts (though the English dubbing saddles him with Michael Forest's voice, which doesn't fit him). Ted Rusoff dubs Antonio Sabato, with his wife Carolyn de Fonseca dubbing Dagmar Lassander (who seems to be in the movie purely to take her clothes off).
