Similarly, Director Ruggero Deodato embraces the cop `dark side' in this signature 1976 release, LIVE LIKE A COP, DIE LIKE A MAN, which incidentally looks terrific as a result of the restoration process for this release from Raro Video. Kudos to all those involved in bringing this film into the digital age.
The story could be lifted up and mass produced directly from any cop thriller of this variety.Read more ›
Normally I would have rated this a three for the pure outlandish action but unfortunately this DVD ends the movie before the movie ends. Yeah, the last ten minutes of the movie -which surely contains the biggest action set piece - was not recorded on the disc. Buyer beware.
Referenced in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Vol. 2, LIVE LIKE A COP, DIE LIKE A MAN (1976) is one of the most violent, censored and unconventional Italian style detective films of its time. The credit goes to both the director Ruggero Deodato, extremely apt at telling stories in a strong tone (he made the infamous Cannibal Holocaust), and the scriptwriter FERNANDO DI LEO, author of the best Italian noir films (Recently released in a DVD boxed set as The Fernando Di Leo Crime Collection - All four films will be available as individual breakouts on July 14 from RaroVideo). Above all, the psychological and behavioral description of the main characters, the two policemen, members of an anti-crime squad who have complete freedom in their actions against crime, had never been seen before. Not only do they not hesitate to brutally kill the criminals they are hunting down, but Alfredo (Marc Porel) and Antonio (Ray Lovelock) do so while maintaining a cynical and light-hearted attitude even in the most threatening situations.
RaroVideo U.S.'s restored version of LIVE LIKE A COP, DIE LIKE A MAN, will arrive on DVD for the first time. The extensive DVD extras include the documentary entitled, Poliziotti Violenti and a fully illustrated booklet containing critical analysis of the film.

Not what I thought it was going to be. The story moves too fast and action seems to happen at random as the story doesn't fill in too much of what's happening. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Killer Kitty 79
