Storyline

Nico Geraldi is a tough undercover cop in the manner of Serpico. His rough and unkempt appearance belies his seriousness regarding crime and criminals. As a ring of pickpockets and thieves plagues Geraldi's city, he attempts to find the fences and criminal masterminds behind the thieves. Richard Russo is the crime boss. He successfully dodges the police, while he manages his criminal empire with cunning and ruthlessness. In the end, Geraldi must deal with Russo using unofficial means.

Italian cop actioner that's lacking
19 January 2013 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

After the spaghetti western genre died in Italy, Italian filmmakers moved to cop movies. Like with spaghetti westerns, there were good and not so good efforts, this movie belonging to the latter category. Tomas Milian, an actor who's made an impression in other movies, seems kind of helpless here, thanks to the costume department dressing him up like a homeless person, and a screenplay that gives him very few opportunities to show some kind of character. Jack Palance is pretty much wasted - he only makes two very brief appearances in the first hour, and not much more in the last half hour. But the main problem with the movie is that it feels oh so tired. There are chases, punch-ups, and guns fired, but it all feels so mechanical. Maybe that's why the musical score plays the same bars of music over and over ad nauseum. Even die hard fans of Eurocult movies would be better off skipping this one.
