Movie Reviews

CORRUPTION--ITALIAN STYLE
Andrew Mangravite | 09/04/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This Damiano Damiani policier seems to fly beneath the radar of critical attention. It doesn't say anything new really, but it says it a very stylish way. The duel of wits between Franco Nero's straight-arrow (and slightly priggish) prosecutor and Martin Balsam's fed-up cop is entertainly presented, and although the denouement is predictable, it really couldn't happen any other way. Marilu Tolo also does a nice job as a reluctant witness who scared to death for very good reasons.
"Confessions of a Police Captain" is no masterpiece, but it's the sort of solid workman-like entry that makes the study of film genres so very entertaining."
Excellent movie - poor quality
Hehenberger Hannes | Austria | 08/26/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)

"this movie with its magnificant cast and its thrilling story could be recommended like all films made by master-director Damiani - but I suffered when watching the story because they sent me a copy with a rather poor image-quality (like a view through strong softening lenses)...a pity.."
Great Euro -Thriller
M. Brennan | Cookstown,, Tyrone. Northern Ireland | 12/26/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Great Euro-Thriller with Martin Balsam in fine form as Captain Bonavira and ever reliable Franco Nero as District Attorney Traini, fighting local corruption with different methods. Great script by the film's director, Damiano Damiani and Salvatore Laurani. Music supplied by Riz Ortolani.
This Brentwood Home Video, DVD version is presented in 4:3 pan & scan. Picture quality and soundtrack are both fair to good,but a film this good deserves to be released in it's original technoscope ratio.
In all,a really good purchase at a good price."
