Mostly unsuccessful Italian thriller
31 August 2008 | by The_VoidSee all my reviews

I can only imagine that Death Rage was meant as some sort of cash in on the success of Yul Brynner's earlier movies because as a film in its own right, it really is severely lacking. This is actually quite a surprise too as it's directed by Antonio Margheriti who, while certainly in the 'B' category of Italian directors active in the seventies, still made some very good films with the likes of Schoolgirl Killer and Danse Macabre. This, however, is not one of his finer hours. The plot is just your average everyday story of a hit-man looking for revenge on someone that he is close to; in this case, it's the death of his brother and on the way to his revenge he falls in love with a stripper played by Barbara Bouchet. Yul Brynner often gets the "hard man" act spot on; but personally I find him to be uncharismatic and I can't really say I'm a fan. The main reason I saw this film is because of the inclusion of the beautiful Barbara Bouchet; but unfortunately for me (and the rest of the red blooded male audience) she is sadly underused. There's a fair bit of action in the film, but to be honest I couldn't really care about it as the plot line is so boring. The film hasn't exactly won itself a good reputation in the thirty years since it was made and I'm not surprised about that. I can't really say there's any good reason to see this film.
