Beacham bares all!
22 April 2016 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Director Massimo Dallamano's 1973 poliziotteschi Super Bitch stars Italian exploitation legend Ivan Rassimov as devious undercover narcotics agent Cliff, who is every bit as corrupt as the drug-runners he is supposed to bring to justice. Cliff manipulates everyone—criminals and cops—to suit his own needs, using whatever means necessary to put the bad-guys out of the picture AND make himself a fortune in the process.

To be honest, I had trouble keeping up with all of the intricacies of Super Bitch's storyline: Cliff's Machiavellian scheming gets awfully complex, and with British hottie Stephanie Beacham (as lovely escort girl Joanne, who is worth every penny) shedding her clothes every few minutes, I found my mind wandering quite a bit (especially during that shower scene! Phew!).

Thankfully, a thorough understanding of the plot isn't absolutely necessary to have a good time with this nifty little crime thriller. Dallamano's film delivers plenty of fast-paced action, lots of OTT violence (blood squibs-a-plenty), and colourful characters (including a diplomat who likes to dress up as a rabbit, and a family of singing hippie gangsters, led by Patricia Hayes' ruthless crime-boss Mamma), plus more welcome eye-candy in the form of Mamma's sexy daughter Eva (Verna Harvey).

Super Bitch also benefits from great location work (Beirut, London, and New York), a wonderfully funky score from Riz Ortolani, and a cool ending in which Cliff's carefully laid plans finally go awry.
