I wonder why, Claudio Fragasso, the last exponent of the Italian action movies, 70's style, persists in working with a script writer that hasn't learn the first thing about structure, character and least of all dialog. The film had the potential for a strong, committed, action packed, smart yarn. Good actors. I like in particular Luca Lionello but the script...makes the whole thing appear ridiculous. The characters move through illogical, melodramatic patterns. The dialog, specially in the most problematic second part is absurd and not in a fun kind of way but infuriatingly so. What's the reason behind it? Every bit of credibility flies out of the window and I didn't know if to laugh out loud or run out of the theater. I feel Fragasso has a good eye and he could come out with a real action flick if he had a good script to base it on.
