A Gangsterella pasta its sell-by date
9 May 2018 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

An Italian crime action thriller; A story about an English-Sicilian lawyer, nephew of a Sicilian crime family head, who now operates out of San Francisco. He teams up with Friscan wiseguy Stacey Keach as they track down some drug smugglers who've crossed the line, coming into conflict with a wider criminal underworld. This is a crime caper with a buddy act thrown. There are impressive car chase sequences and shoot-outs, but the double act never really goes up the gears despite some good screen chemistry. Moore comes over a bit stilted while Keach is the funnier of the two. Although scripted by the Academy Award winning screenwriter of "The French Connection" the film suffers from poor editing and some shoddy camerawork at times. The film might have some interest value for viewers who have a curiosity for a story that is hard to fathom, and is dubbed in parts, though Roger Moore speaks fluent Italian when required.
