Movie Reviews

Compares with scarface as a top crime movie
Michael P. Dobey | colorado springs | 11/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Umberto Lenzi made some great crime/thriller movies during the seventies.
This was probably the best of them. And there are a number of reasons for this; the biggest reason being the great performances given by tomas milan and henry silva. The rest of the cast is first class as well.
But tomas milan really tears up the screen as the monstrous sociopath
who is very small time and comes from the lowest of situations. He is
without any morality or loyalty and he has a chip on his shoulder. So that he sees his crimes as payback for living such a deprived life.
Umberto Lenzi created a film that is a true picture of evil that in some ways rivals the classic 'scarface" movies. (both versions) This movie is straightforward about the depraved killer and his cruelty , who is at best almost human. At this point in Lenzi's career he was doing everything right. He made a series of really great movies like: "oasis of fear", "seven blood stained orchids" , "milano rovente" , 'eyeball" , 'syndicate sadists",
"the cynic, the rat and the fist" and the acceptable 'knife of ice" and the really great 'Rome armed to the teeth" which also featured Tomas milan in another savage performance. These movies showcase his expertise
at storytelling and his tight direction style. People who have only seen Lenzi's later movies will be shocked at how good Lenzi was during his 1970's peak. And if you like gritty fast moving crime flicks with lots of violence then this movie is for you."
