70's Classic
J. Carnes | KC, MO | 03/09/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Ricco The Mean Machine" was just recently released on DVD by DarkSky Films. The film follows a young man (Ricco) who has been released from jail after two years. He returns home to find that his father has been killed and his girlfriend has now become property of the local drug kingpin. Ricco decides to reclaim his woman and avenge his father's murder.
I loved this movie for several reasons. This is a foreign film which has been dubbed in English. Sometimes a dubbed film can become annoying, but you just have to live with it when you are watching a 70's film that is in Italian. It actually wasn't that bad. There aren't many if any special effects and the fight scenes are horribly weak. They are almost comical due to the way they are filmed. Sometimes that is what makes a film like this great. A decent amount of action considering the low budget film category. Simply put this is a classic and I would recommend it to anyone who can appreciate a 1970's crime drama."
