Mya`s Mediocre Mafia Movie...

(3 out of 5 stars)
"After spending 8 years in the tank as a scapegoat for a crime he didn`t commit, Antonio Sabato re-emerges to find his construction company about to be auctioned off due to bad debts accrued while he was in prison, and the mob squeezing his firm out of higher-paying contracts. He tries to halt the auction, and again has to compromise his integrity in order to stay solvent. It`s more about mob controlled unions and payoffs than actual Mafia dealings, but the mob DID control such unions in the 70`s, and the Mafia was behind those mobs. All such compromises come w/ hefty pricetags, resulting in him becoming something he swore not to be, and desperately fighting against all odds to exact vengeance. I don`t like giving more away. It`s a decent film IF you like Mafia/mob/crime dramas w/ a 'Godfather' influence, otherwise you`re wasting your time here. The print quality is far from remastered (this is one area where Mya Communications ALWAYS lets us down - they never bother to improve ANYTHING about their releases), it`s dubbed in English or in Italian without subtitles (so be warned), and there are no extras (another grating aspect of a Mya release). Florinda Balkan ('Flavia The Heretic','Lizard In A Woman`s Skin','Investigation Of A Citizen Above Suspicion'), a great actress, has little screen time, and her talents are wasted here entirely. Decent enough if you`re a fan of these films, but for me better left sleeping with the fishes..."
