Product Description

Live Like A Cop, Die Like A Man (1976) is one of the most violent & unconventional Italian style detective films of its time. The credit goes to both the director Ruggero Deodato & the scriptwriter Fernando di Leo, author of the best Italian noir films (Milano Calibro 9, La Mala Ordina & The Boss). Above all, the psychological & 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 & light-hearted attitude even in the most threatening situations.

LIVE LIKE A COP, DIE LIKE A MAN LIVES UP TO ITS REPUTATION AS ONE OF THE MOST VIOLENT FILMS EVER MADE

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.

I recently purchased this title from Amazon. The film itself was in good shape for its age, decent English dub and good color. The movie itself was a little scatterbrained with a plot that existed primarily to take our two heroes from one shootout to another. While the stunts, especially the driving sequences, were decent, the shootouts could have been better choreographed and the blood a tad less pink in color.
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.

Cop films tend to come in several varieties, but, for my tastes, they tend to break down into two basic themes: either (A) the cop is fighting the system (think of Sylvester Stallone in COP LAND, or Al Pacino in SERPICO) or (B) the cop wears a badge but operates outside the system, always on the edge with his career and his life oft times hanging in the balance (think `Dirty Harry' Callahan as played by Clint Eastwood in DIRTY HARRY or in any of the other HARRY films, or Bruce Willis from any of the DIE HARD pictures). While the former breed of cop films tends to garner the critical praise, it's the latter that draws the attention and general respect of the viewing audience, and that's because if any of us found ourselves in a situation requiring the assistance of the police then we'd want a true supporter of justice (Dirty Harry) out there gunning for our safety. That's not so much a political commentary on any legal system; it's just that folks feel more secure in knowing that the police are going to stop-at-nothing to see villains, ne'er-do-wells, and dastardly devils definitively dealt with once and for all. Also, it's easier to forgive the cop for tauntingly saying "make my day" when we know that our days have been made safer as a consequence of his actions, right or wrong.

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.

Raro Video continues to release the works of Screenwriter/Director Fernando Di Leo this time highlighting one of the most violent crime films of the mid seventies Director Ruggero Deodato's 'LIVE LIKE A COP, DIE LIKE A MAN' aka 'UOMINI SI NASCE POLIZIOTTI SI MUORE'-1976 which was his second film as Director. Boasting in your face cinematography by Guglielmo Mancori and starring french actor Marc Porel and cult actor Ray Lovelock, it resembles an ultra violent version of American televisions 'STARSKY AND HUTCH' but predating it by a number of years. In this films case , the two cops bypass police protocol and red tape by handling their cases in their unique style: punch and shoot first, ask questions if the perpetrator can still talk. The cast also includes the great Adolfo Celi, Renato Salvatore, Deodato's girlfriend at the time, Silvia Dionisio who also appeared in his first film 'WAVES OF LUST' aka 'ONDATE DI PIACERE'-1975 and her twin sister Sofia Dionisio. Beginning with a 10 minute motorcycle chase through the streets of Rome, the film never lets up till its explosive climax and is highly recommended to action fans. Director Deodato also pulls a Hitchcock at the beginning of the film as he comes out of a bank that is being robbed. The extras include a 42 minute documentary on the film 'POLIZIOTTI VIOLENTI' aka 'VIOLENT COPS' featuring interviews with Deodato, Ray Lovelock who hums the films theme song which he sang for the film and had not performed it since the shoot, and Producer Armando Novelli with Deodato commenting also on the coincidence of the american TV series and the reason why a sequel was never filmed; TV commercials directed by and with audio commentary by Deodato, Director biographies and filmographies and an illustrated booklet on the film.Read more ›
