ALMOST HUMAN- 1974 Guilio Sacchi (Thomas Milian in his favorite role) at the opening of the film, is the driver for a bank robbery. When a police man approaches him to move his car he impulsively shoots the cop thus introducing us to one of the slimiest cinematic character portrayals in film ever. The crooks don't want Guilio around anymore so he shacks up with his girlfriend (Strindberg WHO SAW HER DIE?, LIZARD IN A WOMAN'S SKIN) and through her spies a very pretty girl from a rich family. Guilio plans to kidnap the girl and hold her for ransom killing her if the father doesn't pay up. Guilio eventually gets the girl but along the way commits some extremely distasteful acts such as when they trace the girl to a house in the woods where they torture and machine gun the inhabitants kids included. The group holes up in an abandoned boat while they wait for their money. Meanwhile, Inspector Grandi (Silva) tries to find them and convince the father they will not let his daughter go even if he pays them. It all ends badly for the principle cast members in one of the most violent films I've ever seen regardless of genre.

A MAN CALLED MAGNUM 1977-This is a decent if unspectacular entry in the genre but has enough good moments to recommend it. I really enjoyed Merenda's sidekick Capece (Cannavale) who provides comic relief which may seem out of place for this genre but I found it very welcome. The English dubbed voice for Capece reminded me a bit of Inspector Clouseau's sidekick Ju Ju from the INSPECTOR cartoons, spun off from the PINK PANTHER cartoons. His scenes are quite amusing and outside of a couple of well staged set pieces is the reason to watch.

AMERICAN NINJA- 1986-A big hit for Cannon about an American stranded on an island as a child who is trained in Ninjitsu by a Japanese man. He enlists in the Army as an adult and gets involved in a silly plot of weapons theft by the villain and his army of ninja assassins led by real life ninja Tadashi Yamashita. Followed by four increasingly bad sequels. Michael Dudikoff did two of the sequels.

ASSAULT ON PRECINCT 13- 1977-John Carpenters warm up for HALLOWEEN about a gang of killers who surround a dilapidated police precinct thatís closing down. They plan on killing everyone inside as part of a revenge against the police and a man who had shot one of their members for killing his little girl. One of the best examples of the siege movies, it was a bomb upon its release in America but popular in Europe. Itís considered a cult film now. Contains a handful of dialog exchanges ripped from ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST. Well worth your time.

ASSASSINATION 1967-Italian-French crime movie stars Henry Silva about to be put to death in the electric chair. His death is faked and is trained as an assassin to be used to bust open a criminal organization. Silva has his own agenda in addition to his mission. Excellent production all around.

BATTLE OF THE AMAZONS- 1974-Gory Italian drive in favorite about a clan of Amazons that hate all men. They use them for slave labor and breeding purposes executing any female warriors that fall in love with them. Of course, this forms the basis of the main story. A woman and a man convince the tribe to work together to combat a vicious band of barbarians. Lots of nudity and gore.

BEAST WITH A GUN- 1977-Sleazy Italian crime movie from Sergio Grieco who must have had a hard upbringing. Here, Helmut Berger kidnaps the daughter of a police officer he wants dead for putting him away. That comatose superstar Richard Harrison is the cop. Marisa Mell also stars.

BIG BIRD CAGE, THE- 1972-Jack Hillís superior sequel to his own THE BIG DOLL HOUSE. Comedy is added to the mix this time. A Lady of the Evening gets mixed up with some criminals and gets put in an island prison in the Philippines. There, she meets up with another prisoner, a revolutionary (Pam Grier), whose group are going to attack the prison. Stars former PRICE IS RIGHT lady Anitra Ford, Sid Haig in one of his best ever performances and frequent Filipino baddie Vic Diaz as a homosexual prison guard. Another great Roger Corman favorite has it all and then some.

BIG RACKET, THE- 1976-Enzo Castellariís excellent action crime movie is a great place to start in the genre. Here, Fabio Testi recruitís a group of vigilantes to take down a mob boss. Endless scenes of violence and bloodshed. Co-stars Vincent Gardenia and Romolo Pupo plays a good guy for a change.

BLACK SCORPION 1995-Roger Corman direct to cable movie starring the gorgeous Joan Severance as a reporter by day and a BATMAN style super heroine by night. Very popular cable movie got a sequel and a short lived television show.

BLAZING MAGNUM- 1976-Detective Saitta (Whitman) along with Detective Matthews (John Saxon) investigates the murder of Saitta's sister who was poisoned on her college campus. The crime involves the theft of an expensive necklace from the Orient. At first, evidence points to Doctor Tracer (Landau) but it's found through a long chain of events that the actual killer is closer to home. I must say "BLAZING" is amazing and contains all the elements that make these movies such fun to watch. There's lots of action, bloodshed, nudity, wild plot devices and the exhilarating 7 minute car chase is worth seeing the film on its own. Whitman is more brutish than the films bad guys. A prime exploitation flick.

BLOODY HAND OF THE LAW- 1973-An old crime boss is assassinated in his hospital bed and is spotted by a yong woman. Her roommate urges her not to tell the police but she does so anyway and is murdered for her trouble. Her roommate is also murdered along with her boyfriend. The identities of the killers are found out but the police have a difficult time making arrests as anyone who is a witness or knows anything at all are killed. It is eventually found out that a large criminal organization is at work with links to the police force itself, and they're not about to allow themselves to be discovered. Kinski is evil as hell here as the silent assassin who tortures and murders the various people who learn a bit too much info even blow torching the genital region of one of his greasy underlings for raping one of the victims. Kinski never speaks in this one although when he is caught, he is nearly beaten to death by Leroy who finally gets him to confess but you never see it. Why Kinski never got lines here is unknown. But he is deliciously evil in this role by his facial expressions.

BLOODY PAYROLL 1977-Cassinelli is excellent as the somewhat honorable leader of the criminals. During the opening robbery, he doesn't kill any hostages when the opportunity arises and even allows two females to be set free. He doesn't want to kill unless he is pushed into the situation. The same cannot be said for the other villains. Dionisio is fine as the hooker who ultimately helps the police nab the crooks but falls in love with Raoul late in the game. She also shows some skin here as well. Mario Caiano shows a more assured hand here than his spaghetti westerns delivering some fine action scenes.

BREAKOUT- 1975-Charles Bronson plays a conning helicopter pilot coerced by Jill Ireland to break her husband, played by Robert Duvall, out of a foreign prison. Also stars a young Randy Quaid. Bronson gets to play some low key comedy here and is quite good at it. One of his biggest hits. The film got a PG rating despite an amazingly gory demise for one of the bad guys at the end. Based on a true story.

CLASS OF 1984 1984-Classic and foreboding horror-revenge picture that presents a fascinating look at a school system in serious decline which is socially relevant today. Perry King is the teacher who is moved to a gutter hole of a school where the gangs and miscreants run the show. Michael J. Fox in his first big role plays one of the abused students. Roddy McDowall is the spirited teacher who slowly loses his sanity and has the absolute best scene in the whole movie. To describe it would ruin its perfection. Kingís wife is raped and beaten by a handful of punks led by Vincent Van Patten, who shows some astonishing character traits not normally seen in movies of this kind. The teacher takes the law into his own hands and kills them all one by one during a band performance at the school. Highly recommended.

CHISUM 1970-John Wayne as a wealthy land owner who runs into problems with Forrest Tucker who wants to buy Wayneís land. This leads to some trouble with Christopher George as a nasty bounty hunter. Some good action scenes and a great exploitation cast including George, Richard Jaekal and Andrew Prine.

CHATOíS LAND 1972-Okay Bronson vehicle about a half breed Indian who shoots a white man in self defense and is pursued by Jack Palance, Strother Martin and others. It foreshadows DEATH WISH as the ill mannered and filthy posse rape and kill Bronsonís wife. He hunts them down and snuffs them out. The main problem is there is no build up to the focal point of the story. It opens with Bronson shooting the man in the saloon. Thereís no insight into his character whatsoever and Bronson speaks only a couple of times in Indian. The filmmakers couldnít even be bothered to put a THE END after the film finishes.

COLT .38 SPECIAL SQUAD 1977-The movie itself is nothing special. However, it benefits from some beautiful Italian locations and the photography is noteworthy. The stunts are exceptional particularly the finale when Vanni must reach the airport before the villain and he pulls off some breathtaking moves in one of those small European cars on a treacherous dirt road and a train. There are the usual startling scenes of violence and bloodshed that Dallamano handles very well.

CONTRABAND- 1980-Lucio Fulciís ultra violent and gory crime movie features some of the nastiest scenes in the crime genre. The film itself is nothing special about the smuggling of cigarettes. Fabio Testi stars.

CONVOY BUSTERS- 1980-Maurizio Merli plays a cop moved to another precinct as a sort of vacation only to run into criminal elements involving smuggling of drugs inside of fish. Kind of slow moving but has several good moments. Also stars Olga Karlatos. Directed by Stelvio Massi.

CUSTER OF THE WEST 1969-Robert Shaw plays the famous General George Custer in this violent re-telling of his life leading up to the legendary Custerís Last Stand. Highly recommended.

CANNONBALL- 1976-Roger Corman-Shaw Brothers co-production about a cross country road race similar to the previous GUMBALL RALLY and the later CANNONBALL RUN. David Carradine, Gerritt Graham, Sylvester Stallone and Martin Scorsese.

CYNIC, THE RAT & THE FIST, THE 1976-Leonardo Tanzi (Maurizio Merli) has a hit put on him by The Chinaman (Tomas Milian) recently released from prison. The hit isn't successful but Tanzi goes along with it faking his death and goes into hiding which lasts for maybe five minutes when he learns Chinaman is working with another mob boss Frank DiMaggio (John Saxon). Tanzi sets about avenging some relatives, busting some of their criminal activities and ruining some of their operations in secret eventually setting the two against each other culminating in a final confrontation between the combatants.

DEATH HUNT 1982-MGM-Golden Harvest co-production partially based on a true story. Charles Bronson is blamed for numerous deaths in the snowy mountains. A group of hunters are sent out after him. Stars Lee Marvin, Andrew Stevens, Carl Weathers, Ed Lauter and Will Sanderson.

DEATH WISH- 1973-The first of five movies about architect by day vigilante by night Paul Kersey avenging his wifeís murder and his daughterís rape. Kersey never gets the men who committed the crime (one of them is a young Jeff Goldblum) but he does rub out a few robbers, rapists and various other criminals. A massive hit during its release particularly so in big cities where the story resonated most. The sequels, although entertaining, were based more on exploitation than the overall plot. This one really has a lot to say about our court system and the ending offers much to think about as does the final shot of Bronson in the airport. Regardless of what Castellari may say, this film, along with a couple others fueled the Italian crime genre throughout the 70s.

DEATH WISH 2- 1982-Super sleazy sequel to the movie that really put Bronson on the US movie map. Here, after re-locating to Las Angeles, Bronsonís unstable daughter is, amazingly, raped again as is his housekeeper who is also murdered in a prolonged scene that was severely cut to obtain its R rating. Bronson goes after them and manages to get the punks this time out. Vincent Gardenia learns of the vigilantism in LA and transfers there as well to find out if it is in fact Kersey or a copycat killer. Laurence Fishburne plays one of the punks. A drive-in favorite and a critical disaster. The European DVD is uncut.  The score by Jimmy Page is very memorable.

DEATH WISH 3- 1985-Outrageous sequel sees Kersey, the most abused man in cinema history, caught up in a sincerely nasty gang war. His vigilante ďbadgeĒ is approved by Ed Lauter who wants him to nail a vicious gang leader whose followers are making life hard on a tenement full of senior citizens among others. The ending is so over the top it becomes comical. Michael Winner pours on the violence so thick you eventually become numb to it. Bronson again doesnít speak much but gets some very funny lines. Say hello to Wildy for me.

DEATH WISH 4- 1987-J. Lee Thompson takes over for Michael Winner in this seriously under budgeted but fun actioner. Another re-telling of YOJIMBO as Bronson turns two gangs against each other after his girl friendís daughter ODís on drugs. Robert Ryan plays the villain. Apparently Cannon didnít much money for this one as some scenes are sloppy like a man thrown through a glass window that detonates before he is tossed into it and another shot of three men blown up in a restaurant. If you slow the frame down you can see itís three dummies at the table. Also, cables can be seen attached to the dummy thatís blown up during the final moments. Still, itís a Bronson flick and thatís reason enough to check it out.

DELTA FORCE, THE- 1986-One of Cannonís biggest hits about terrorists that hijack a plane and threatens to kill the passengers lest some of their people are released from prison. Chuck Norris stars with Lee Marvin as members of the top secret Delta Force Commando Unit. Robert Forster is the leader of the terrorists. Seeing it now leaves an entirely different impression after the 9/11 attacks. The movie is very entertaining and although Norris isnít the best actor, heís a lot of fun to watch onscreen. Also stars popular action star Steve James.

DELTA FORCE 2, THE- 1990-Lame sequel. Norris is the only one from the previous movie that returns and is the only reason to watch. The action scenes involving explosions and military hardware are ridiculous.

DILLINGER- 1974-Warren Oates is excellent as the famous gangster in John Miliusís hyper violent and bloody biopic. A super cast in one of AIPís best movies. Ben Johnson is Elliott Ness, Richard Dreyfuss, Harry Dean Stanton. Some of the most spectacularly bloody shoot outs ever put to film. A fine score as well in this highly recommended movie.

DIRTY DOZEN, THE 1967-Big budget WW2 movie that begat dozens of imitators, particularly in Italy. Lee Marvin, Donald Sutherland, Richard Jaekal, Telly Savalas, Charles Bronson, Jim Brown and Clint Walker are among the all star cast about a group of military prisoners some murderers and thieves, breaking into a Nazi outpost to destroy it and free any prisoners in the process. Followed years later by two made for TV sequels.

DIRTY MARY, CRAZY LARRY 1974-One of the biggest summer hits from Fox in 74 about two thieving race car drivers who rob a grocery store and end up with a flighty and sassy free spirited stowaway. The three freewheelers are chased all over the state by big, Vic Morrow who wants them at all costs. Peter Fonda, Susan George and Kenneth Tobey star. Roddy McDowall is strangely unbilled as the grocery store manager. British director John Hough, who preferred working on horror movies, does an astounding good job of capturing the Americana flavor despite being a British filmmaker. In interviews Fonda says he had an immensely enjoyable time filming this one. Prepare yourself for the explosive finale.

DOUBLE GAME- 1980-George Hilton as the Avenger. A cop by day and vigilante at night. Havenít seen yet. Hilton did not return for the unreleased sequel.

EMERGENCY SQUAD- 1974 Milian plays Inspector Ravelli, an interpol agent who stalks the gang responsible for the daylight shooting of his wife who got in the way of a robbery. When bullet casings taken from a heist match those from the scene of his wife's murder, Ravelli identifies the leader as the "Marseilles" (Moshin from GODFATHER 2). Ravelli throws away his badge and hunts down the Marseilles and his gang.

EVIL THAT MEN DO, THE- 1982-Violent Charles Bronson vehicle in which he avenges the brutally violent death of a journalist friend of his who died at the hands of a malicious doctor who tortures political prisoners in foreign countries. One of the most mean spirited of Bronsonís movies and supposedly had much of its violence cut for an R rating. The ending is poetic justice.

FEAR IN THE CITY- 1976-Inspector Murri is removed from the police force because of his use of excessive force and when Lettieri, a mob boss, escapes from prison, crime escalates until the police force has no choice but to reinstate Murri much to the chagrin of his commissioner played by James Mason.  One of my favorites so far and one of Merli's best. He's incredibly cold and vicious (when the need arises) here more so than the other films I've seen him in. He gets a love interest in the form of Silvia Dionisio, who I believe was married to Ruggero Deodato at the time.

FINAL CHAPTER-WALKING TALL- 1977-Violent sequel returns to the originals R rated shenanigans. Here, Pusser is voted out of office by the very townspeople he fought so hard to protect. The mob racketeers that plagued him in the previous entries return here. During the last months of his life, Pusser is seen consulting on the first film shortly before he is killed in a freak automobile accident that here is shown to have been the result of foul play. A great 70s cast of TV and exploitation regulars. Bo Svenson returns as Buford Pusser. The great Jack Starrett directs. Someone who knew the Pusser family told me once that supposedly, Pusser knew about the crimes going on and only did something about it when the criminal elements refused to continue paying him off.

FROM CORLEONE TO BROOKLYN 1978-A big time crime boss heads to NY after some of his goons assassinate his rival in the streets of Corleone. Lt. Berni finds out his whereabouts and when Beressi (Merola) learns the cops in NY are on to him as well he decides to put a hit on the two people left who can put him away for good- the man who carried out the assassination (Pelligra) and Beressi's girlfriend. Berni just misses saving the girlfriend but captures the hit man and plans to go to NY along with his prisoner to testify. Along the way Beressi's men try and take the two out and once they reach NY the obstacles become bigger. Berni just barely gets his witness to court in time (and alive) with the ending foreshadowing more trouble ahead. Lenziís final, and surprisingly, most subtle cop thriller.

GAUNTLET, THE- 1977-Clint Eastwood in his first movie with his lover Sondra Locke who years later would cause him much grief. Here, he is framed for a crime he did not commit and must break through a gauntlet of crooks and cops to clear his name. Very exciting and often times humorous ďbuddyĒ movie. Eastwood was very consistent at delivering enjoyable action films.

GRAND SLAM 1967-Considered one of the greatest heist movies of all time. Stars Janet Leigh, Robert Hoffman, Klaus Kinski, Adolfo Celi and Edward G. Robinson. Havenít seen yet.

GUNS OF THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN- 1969-My favorite of the MAG 7 movies. Seven men led by Chris Adams, this time played by George Kennedy, must break Mexican prisoners out of a Federal Stronghold led by Michael Ansara. Stars Joe Don Baker as a one armed gunfighter and Bernie Casey. Apparently a bigger budget was awarded this production. Followed by the lame THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN RIDE! starring Lee Van Cleef as Adams.

HARD TIMES- 1975-One of Charles Bronsonís best achievements about a down on his luck boxer during the Depression Era who fights to make a living. He meets up with a con artist (James Coburn) who gets them both into lots of trouble with the mob. Walter Hillís first time out is a winner. When the film was set to be released, the title, then called THE STREET FIGHTER, had to be changed abruptly as the Sonny Chiba film under the same name had just been released.

HUNTING PARTY, THE 1970- One of a handful of gruesome westerns made in the wake of THE WILD BUNCH. A gang led by Oliver Reed kidnaps the wife (Candice Bergen) of Gene Hackman and he gathers a posse to hunt them down like animals. Lots of gory shootouts and a downer ending. A movie like this couldnít be made today.

INVASION USA 1985-Terrorists invade the United States of America and only Chuck Norris all by himself can stop them. Lots of violent scenes that push the R rating to the limit. Richard Lynch plays the villain to the hilt. Billy Drago has a bit part.

KILL BILL 2002-QTís ode to kung fu, samurai, gangster and exploitation cinema is an okay but bloody mess that even fits in small nods to spaghetti westerns and Japanese giant monster movies. Numerous lines of dialog are pilfered from other 70s films and it never succeeds in being serious enough to make anyone not already a fan remotely curious about the finer examples of the genres it proclaims to champion. Odd choices in music that sometimes fits. Followed by an even more confusing sequel with its drastic change in style and tone. This time the borrowed musical cues are even more confounding and unnecessary.

KINJITE, FORBIDDEN SUBJECTS- 1989-Charles Bronsonís last film for Cannon and the last before his wife, Jill Ireland succumbed to Cancer. A Tokyo businessman is moved to LA where he molests a young girl on a bus which from what Iíve heard is fairly common in Japan. The girl turns out to be Bronsonís daughter who is a cop and a racist. Ironically, he ends up having to locate the same Japanese manís daughter who has been kidnapped by a criminal Bronson has been trying to nail through the entire film. The young Japanese girl is forced into prostitution.  One of Bronsonís best movies during the 80s and I believe this would also be his last movie with director J. Lee Thompson.

KISS OF THE DRAGON 1999-Jet Liís best US action movie is the only one that truly resonates the HK action style of the 90s. In France, Li gets involved with an excessively violent and corrupt police Captain dabbling in prostitution among other crimes. Some really nasty villains and Li is a dominating screen presence. Bridget Fonda is also good as a hooker with a heart of gold whose daughter is being held hostage. A wonderfully disgusting ending showcases one of the best ever demises for a villain. Luc Besson directs.

LAST ROUND, THE 1975-French actor Luc Merenda stars alongside famous boxer Carlos Monzon in this Italian crime movie, another take off of YOJIMBO. An average thriller made watchable by Monzonís performance. Directed by the overrated Stelvio Massi.

LIVE LIKE A COP, DIE LIKE A MAN- 1975-Ruggero Deodato's warm up before his notorious cannibal flick THE LAST CANNIBAL WORLD which led to much publicized scandal with the subsequent classic CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST. Here Deodato, as usual, shows a keen eye for action and setting up shots. The many accusations that this is the nastiest of the POLIZIOTTESHI is a bit exaggerated. While there is numerous violent scenes and much nudity it seems a bit tame compared to Fulci's CONTRABAND with Fabio Testi. Possibly in lieu of the reception given CANNIBAL HOLOCAUST did this film garner its reputation. One scene is, according to Deodato, lost forever where one of the failed minions of the Boss has his eye gouged out and is summarily squashed underfoot in close up. All you see is the bad guy digging into the socket as it cuts away but the way Deodato describes the scene it was apparently shot almost verbatim in Tarantino's KILL BILL 2.

LONE WOLF McQUADE 1983- Chuck Norris vs. David Carradine in this action film with a great spaghetti western score.  Carradine only agreed to do the film as long as he wasnít shown beaten on screen! Barbara Carrera, Robert Beltrane and L.Q. Jones also star. One of Chuckís best movies period. Director Steve Carver also directed the incendiary 1976 movie DRUM.

LOSERS, THE 1973- Big bad ass William Smith stars as the leader of a biker gang assigned to break a political prisoner out of a Vietnam POW camp. The bikers fashion their hogs with machine guns and rocket launchers and launch an assault against the Viet Cong in this Cool 70s style action in this violent flick directed by 70s action specialist Jack Starrett.

Didn't care for this too much either. It's a bit of a bore. However I disagree with you on the ending as I think it's chilling that the screen blacks out just as Chato's last victim is seen running (or slumping rather) from him in the seemingly endless desert.

A big "THE END" sign would have ruined the whole scene.

 Followed by the lame THE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN RIDE! starring Lee Van Cleef as Adams.



It's only fair as I think ADIOS SABATA (the movie LVC was too busy to make because of his engagement to making TM7R) is the lamest of the SABATA series. Mainly because I don't like Yul Brynner in the title role.

I did a review for WALKING TALL in the RANDOM REVIEW thread. Had planned on the other two at a later time. I may actually prefer the 3rd film over the others. It's at least neck and neck with the first movie.

It's pretty disturbing, about a van full of mentally disturbed kids who end up stranded in the snow. They make their way to a resort home where they then cut down the cast members in various gory ways. Sorrell Booke (Boss Hogg on DUKES OF HAZZARD) is in it as well as Gene Evans, the crooked cop from WALKING TALL (73) among other things. I was going to do a review in the RANDOM thread.
