A flat crime flick
30 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

I expected much more with Henry Silva in the cast. This crime movie made in the seventies lacks of action and sharpness, but it's not a piece of crap, I assure you folks. If you can get it, go on.

If Fernando Di Leo had made it, it certainly would have been different. to be clear, not the best Italian crime movie ever, far from that. The director was a lousy one. Everything is predictable and I still wonder what the hell Henry Silva did in that film. Probably to pay his electricity bills. I could have played his character...
