                      "Do to others what others would want to do to you, but do it first"

 Caught a really nice-looking copy of this last night in a theatrical showing and after viewing this and TO BE TWENTY recently, Fernando Di Leo is becoming one of my favorite Italian directors.  This one is a great 70's Eurocrime flick with a really amazing soundtrack.  It literally starts off with a bang as the mafia dispense with some suspected thieves by blowing them up with dynamite sticks.  From there on it's all double-crosses and violence with neither the cops or the mafia being portrayed as clear-cut heroes.  The acting is all amazingly fitting and our main character here, Ugo, is a sort-of mix between Jason Statham and Lawrence Tierney from RESERVOIR DOGS(Tarantino has stated this is the greatest Italian film-noir ever made).  Ugo's main nemesis, played by Mario Adorf, is about as sleazy and unlikeable as possible while alternately booting naked whores in the ass and/or kissing the ass of  head baddie "The Americano".  I also find it amusing that the top scumbag here is an American since everyone knows how ugly and evil those people can be. Barbara Bouchet also does a great job of bringing some hotness to the flick as a go-go dancing beauty.  With a twist ending that comes out of nowhere this one is a great watch for Eurotrash fans.
