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.

Guido and Maurizio De Angelis rules!!!!
14 May 2002 | by Sukubus_IncSee all my reviews

I like old spaghetti police movies! Always dark, violents and originals. And they usually got a very good soundtrack. This one is no exception. The beginning is great, starting exactly like Street Law: small criminals doing pickpocket and many violent acts on bike. then come Millian violently punishing these little criminals. jack palance play a great bad guy, even if you know that he didnt put a lot of effort in this role. The first half is very good, but the second, I admit, is a little bit boring. Recommended for Millian and Bruno Corbucci fan and for the killer soundtrack by Guido and Maurizio...so cool.
