It's a mad, mad, mad, mad mafia world
27 September 2018 | by BezenbySee all my reviews

It's a mean, lean, Italian crime machine starring the skinny Leonard Mann as a cop out to get violent robber/mob boss Henry Silva, who is giving crime a bad name with his proactive approach to robbery (he shoots everyone, basically). Weirdest of all, you know that kid who got crippled in Violent Naples...this is somehow a sequel to that too!

Mann the man is in Naples and he knows that Santoro (Silva) is the jerk robber, but seeing as how Silva is willing to finish off any of his own men that are wounded during these robberies, it's gonna be a hard slog for Mann. He's got to fight his way through many bad guys to get to Silva, but luckily he's got an undercover squad of cops and a crippled kid with a taste for petty crime to help him out.

To be fair Silva has the highest mob boss in Naples watching his back so he does okay too, and we all know what's going to happen, but then again it's all about how we get there, right? This one has many car chases, explosions, robberies, bag snatching, a mob attacking a Jimmy Saville guy who then gets his knackers cut off in prison, and best of all, Massimo Vanni turns up as an undercover cop who gets decapitated for his troubles (and that's not the last time Massimo loses his head in one of these films).

This one ticks all the boxes and rarely puts a foot wrong. Mario Caiano is a solid director, which makes you wonder why he made that abysmal Deported Woman of the SS Special Section.
