'The Narc' (aka) 'Mark il Poliziotto is a euro crime classic!
24 January 2014 | by Darkling_ZeistSee all my reviews

The very first incendiary-packed instalment in Stelvio Massi's gloriously rambunctious Mark Trilogy also marks one of the high points of the once popular series of hard-nosed, politically incorrect Poliziottesco thrillers, Italian film-goers of the early to late 70s favoured so highly. The cool and svelte Franco Gasparri makes for an engaging lead; while he lacks the brutish machismo of the legendary Maurizio Merli, he still cuts a handsome dash as the crusading maverick copper with a penchant for wayfarer sunglasses and high caliber weaponry; which he uses most expertly against a multifarious gallery of hideous criminality. Lee J. Cobb does his mean ol' guy routine and Stelvio Cipriani unleashes one of his most funky scores. 'The Narc' (aka) 'Mark il Poliziotto is a euro crime classic, proving yet again that stalwart action director, Stelvio Massi remains one of the finest practitioners of this most exhilarating of genres.
