Three twentysomethings botch a robbery and gun down some policemen in the process, seemingly now driven to embark on a crime spree, escalating in further murder, with fewer options left, they attempt to bolt. Their methods and motives becoming increasingly unpredictable and exasperating for the detective sent to bring them in.
This poliziotteschi was written by Di Leo, directed by Castellari's uncle and stars Milian as the cop and Patrizi as the psychopathic leader of the 'misunderstood' hoodlums. Both excellent in their roles, Milian's detective is quite sedate considering the subgenre and he pulls this off perfectly. Patrizi also understated in his role of psycho. The overall outcome being a rather less fascist '70s Italian cop thriller than we're used to.
Patrizi reminds me of Norman from 'Only When I Laugh', which isn't really the look of a badass psycho but anyone doubting his talents as a rich kid gone nasty need look no further than the awesome Rome Armed To The Teeth! The main drawback to this film being a rather irritating fellow in the back of the getaway car, who wears a Fritz The Cat t~shirt and has the brain of an addled Bart Simpson! Nontheless fans will enjoy this, oh and the scores good.
Rarovideo's print looks great, is widescreen and comes with a few extras. With optional English/Italian Lang and English subs.

Three friends Blondie, Louis and Joe are on a crime spree spanning from robbery to murder. Louis's girlfriend Lea however wants him to stop so she goes to the police and speaks to the Commissario to give over all the information to put their crimes to an end.

Made at the height of the popularity of the Poliziotteschi in 1976 by talented director Romolo Guerrieri the brother of Marino Girolami and the uncle to cult favourite Enzo G Castellari. Guerrieri made some very good films throughout his career including the Spaghetti Westerns $10,000 Blood Money with Gianni Garko, Johnny Yuma with Mark Damon and the mystery thriller Ring of Death with Franco Nero. This is another one good film to add to his short but impressive CV.

The story focuses on the three youths and Tomas Milians role as the Commissario hunting them down is more of a small supporting role, so it is quite surprising to see someone as talented as Milian playing such a minor character. The three lads are poorly acted and it didn't take me long to find them annoying, the ring leader Blondie played by Stefano Patrizi, becomes increasingly more psychotic as the film progresses. Then there's the most annoying out of all of them 'Little Joe' played by Benjamin Lev who cracks painful jokes throughout and laughs constantly, the third member of the gang is Louis the get away driver who isn't as violent as his friends and is drawn is mainly due to peer pressure.

We get a surprising amount of action, including a blotched petrol station robbery, a bank heist, a supermarket raid which results in Blondie and Joe killing off some new members of their gang, various murders, and a very well made car chase. The ending some people might call anti-climatic but I actually liked it and thought it fitted the film well.

This is a mst see for 1970's Italian crime movie fans. Thogh not as good as "Almost Human" its still pretty great. The crooks are youung, violent, dangerous and highly unpredictable! Anybody can get it in this movie and usually they do! Also, what a babe playing one of the crooks reluctant girlfriend! Some decent actors in the lead roles, though Milian is wasted as the detective on their trail. As usual for Italian crime movies, a pretty sobering ending. I think the movie could have been improved with a better score. One aspect i noticed was an almost complete lack of music during the film. Otherwise highly recommended.

Murderers On The Run: An Italian Genre Picture That Keeps Its Central Characters Too Aloof 13 Mar 2012
By K. Harris - Published on
1976's Italian crime opus "Young, Violent, Dangerous" fits squarely into the exploitation market of that period which glorified random and realistic violence with gleeful amorality. While the picture is well made and well acted, though, its characters are such ciphers that it becomes hard to develop any genuine connection to the film or its outcome. That's not to say that I didn't like it, because I did on a superficial level. I just wanted to care about ANY of the individual characters (didn't we root for "Bonnie and Clyde," wasn't the couple in "Badlands" eerily identifiable?) in a meaningful way. After watching "Young, Violent, Dangerous," though, I didn't feel like I knew any of the principles at all and so the emotional impact lacked punch. The central premise of the movie revolves around three affluent young men who go on a murderous crime spree with no apparent reason. The screenplay offers little in the way of actual development, and the brief moralizing that society and their parents created such monsters is really just a sociological platitude with no basis in anything else the film presents.

But still, as I said, the performers (though largely unexplored) are charismatic and talented. The movie opens with a young lady turning her boyfriend into a local police commissioner (Tomas Milian, who despite top billing is more of a supporting player) for a robbery that has yet to happen. She feels he's fallen in with the wrong element and wishes to protect him. The police stake-out the intended target and the resultant confrontation turns our trio of badboys into murderers on the lam for their lives. As they day progresses, they will get deeper and deeper into criminal mischief (including abducting the girlfriend) as the police close in. The boys are the expected character types: The cold-blooded leader, the daft and enthusiastic henchman, and the conflicted outsider (the aforementioned boyfriend, he only drives). Although it seems they have dwelled in the arena of petty and non-violent crime, no one even blinks when things are ratcheted up to the next level.

Stefano Patrizi is interesting and enigmatic as the gang's leader, his detachment seems well suited to the piece. Max Delys is likable as the conflicted driver, but doesn't have a lot to work with--mainly he just looks pained. Eleonora Giorgi, as the girlfriend, perhaps has the meatiest role. And, for my taste, Benjamin Lev is a bit over-the-top as the slow, but trigger-happy, partner. In truth, "Young, Violent, Dangerous" doesn't offer much new in this genre and you know where it's headed at every moment. It's certainly easy enough to watch, it just doesn't compare to some of the more significant and memorable films that it will call to mind. Still, if it sounds like it would appeal to you, give it a try. It's not bad, I just wanted to be more connected with what I was watching on an emotional level. A lot of potential, but only about 3 1/2 stars for leaving me somewhat apathetic. KGHarris, 3/12.

Good film, gorgeous transfer by RARO, great extras. 17 May 2014

Surprisingly good euro-crime/poliziotteschi with fantastic photography shot in beautiful Milano. It's much better than Castellari's "Street Law". The performances by all the actors are great. For only $6,99 this is a must have. Beautiful cover.

By The Numbers Euro Crime Drama 11 July 2013
By William Amazzini - Published on

Italian Film maker Fernando Di Leo turns his director reins over to Director Romolo Guerrieri and scribes Raro Video's latest crime release 'YOUNG VIOLENT DANGEROUS' aka 'LIBERI ARMATI PERICOLOSI'- 1976 , a film posing as a poliziottesci genre film from the DVD box cover art but emerges as a routine juvenile delinquent film which Hollywood B-movie makers cranked out during the late fifties. This time the violence is more prolific but the main leads are purely one dimensional as we are asked to convey emotion to three spoiled misfits who go on a violent killing crime spree( which is never explained but the film tries to blame the parents of the trio for their lack of communication and guidance) climaxing in a violent showdown within their clique. Actor Tomas Milian, who to me will always be the Italian Al Pacino, takes back stage to the three leads as the inspector and the beautiful Eleanora Giorgi plays one of the trio's girlfriend and hostage and provides the eventual gratuitous topless scene which aids them during their chase. Director Guerrieri who directed a few Spaghetti Westerns such as my favorite '10,000 DOLLARS FOR A MASSACRE' aka '10,000 DOLLARI PER UN MASSACRO'-1967 and the underrated Giallo 'THE SWEET BODY OF DEBORAH' aka 'IL DOLCE CORPO DI DEBORAH'-1968 moves the film at a breezy clip using on-location shots throughout. The only real thorn in the side is the up beat Harmonica oriented music score by Enrico Pieranunzi which throws off the feel of the film. Raro Video releases it in a 1.85 transfer with slight green speckles and a blatant blue line showing up dead center during a shot but overall is quite nice and could almost pass as a 1080P Blu-Ray release. Extras are slightly skimpy with a documentary 'RAGAZZI FUORI' including a great interview with Director Guerrieri and his thoughts on the film and his actors , a director biography and filmography and a Bonus Rom RDM/PDF file containing a booklet on the film which Raro Video usually provides in the slip case but which is absent here. Recommended to Euro Crime fans only.
