Missed the mark again, Alberto!
12 December 2017 | by BezenbySee all my reviews

Strangely, this Alberto De Martino film starts with Antonio Sabato riding a motorbike while the credits run, exactly like De Martino's The Man with the Icy Eyes. This time though Antonio is on the other side of the law. He's a low level mafia foot soldier whose family name has been sullied by his Mafioso father double crossing someone and being killed for his troubles.

Antonio's out to make a name for himself so he heads for Milan and guns down a turncoat mafia Capo who was also responsible for his father's death. With the help of his brother, he heists some heroin from two soldiers working for Milan-based Mafia Don Telly Savalas, and Savalas is impressed enough to take him under his wing. It also helps that Savalas has a hot niece whom Antonio gets the hots for, but is Antonio playing it off legit or is he working the long con?

This film does have some action sequences but doesn't quite hit the mark mainly due (once again) to Antonio Sabato's lack of emotion and Alberto De Martino's laid back approach to story-telling. There's a lot of characters introduced throughout the story which leads to an awful lot of dialogue, meetings (who doesn't love a meeting in an action film!) and talk of loyalty, when instead we should have things exploding, car chases, and shouting.

I'll give the film credit for having someone turned into bars of soap years ahead of Fight Club, however. I'm not saying this is a particularly bad film, mind you, but it's lacking the frantic action of other films of this type. Maybe De Martino was aiming for a more serious take on the subject, but for a genre that generally has few clunkers, this is just so-so.
