A gang of thugs (one of which is Ken Wood) are terrorising all the small businesses in a Italian city, beating them and threatening them to pay protection money each month. So tough cop Nico Palmieri (Fabio Testi) decides to get Luigi Giulti (Renzo Palmer) who is one of the witness to testify against them, but when his daughter is brutally raped as a consequence. He decides enough is enough and fights back the only way he knows.
This is a typical of the Euro-Crime movie genre that was very popular in the 1970's, but that doesn't make this a bad movie. It is very well made by the great Enzo G Castellari and this is one of the best films he has ever made in my opinion.
The film features some very good action sequences which use the typical Sam Peckinpah style slow motion, but I would have liked to have seen it used more in the final shoot-out in the warehouse.
Fabio Testi is great as the tough as nails inspector Nico Palmieri but a lot of the other performances are hampered by the poor dubbing but that doesn't bother me when I'm used to watching these Italian Genre films.
Maurizio and Guido De Angelis's score in my opinion is average but there was one part of the main theme tune I thought was catchy.
Overall a great movie that I could watch over and over again
