Editorial Reviews

In this frame by frame digitally restored film comes this rare entry into the poliziotteschi genre. A robbery goes terribly wrong for a hapless criminal Massimo (Ray Lovelock) when he tries to break into a jewelry store only to have the steel shutters immediately slam down and lock him inside until the police arrive. Naturally, he is sent straight to jail but It doesn't take long before he befriends a big time crime boss inside, but the plot thickens when it transpires that the young man is actually not who we think he is. The two execute a successful escape and we soon find out that we don't really know the true background of these criminals or what is really motivating them. Franco Prosperi (Last House on the Beach) directs this revenge themed crime film with Ray Lovelock and Elke Sommer. With its clever plot twists, fist fights, motorcycle and car chases, Meet Him and Die is an entertaining police action thriller.

Over a decade ago, the Italian Exploitation genres were being well represented by such companies as Media Blasters, Blue Underground, and No Shame films as fans were introduced to complete , uncut and widescreen versions of Horror, Crime and Pepla photoplays. Now Raro Video has taken up the mantle set up by those companies by releasing important Euro Crime titles for the first time . Their Fernando Di Leo crime sets are fabulous and now this month no less than four titles will be released to fans of which this one, Director Franco Prosperi's 'MEET HIM AND DIE' aka 'PRONTO AD UCCIDERE '-1976 is the first. Although its a great showcase for star Ray Lovelock who would go on to star in another film for Prosperi, the underrated 1978' s 'THE LAST HOUSE ON THE BEACH' aka 'LA SETTIMA DONNA' , it emerges as a derivative yarn involving undercover drug operations surrounded by some exciting car chases and double crosses. Lovelock ,who fans saw as a secondary character in some early films of Director Umberto Lenzi and Fernando Di Leo and who was also front and center in Director Jorge Grau's excellent Zombie Horror 'LET SLEEPING CORPSES LIE' aka 'THE LIVING DEAD AT THE MANCHESTER MORGUE'-1975, plays his anti hero role no holds barred straight. He is joined by American actor Martin Balsam as a capo in the drug trade and gorgeous Elke Sommer coming off some US titles and some great Horror films of Director Mario Bava. Unfortunately, she does not have much to do here. The photography by Roberto D'Ettere Piazzoli is excellent and the music by Ubaldo Continiello mixes Lovelock's folky tunes with some progressive motifs. I viewed the DVD and it is gorgeous in a nice 1.85 transfer in Italian with English subtitles. The disc has a 6 minute intro by writer/filmmaker Mike Malloy as its only extra.Read more ›

Raro strikes again! We are fortunate to have a company like Raro in this day and age that brings to light these beautiful Italian films of the past. The quality of the blu ray, its packaging, and its one extra (a video introduction by Mike Malloy, an author) are all first-class, as usual. The film has suffered a few minor damage marks in one spot, but otherwise is remarkably preserved.

This film stars Ray Lovelock, who plays a policeman who goes undercover in part to avenge himself against a couple of thugs/robbers who shot and crippled his mother (while she is trying to prevent him from drawing his gun? Nice, mom!). He is ostensibly out to break up the drug ring that these thieves belong to, and Martin Balsam plays one of the drug bosses, and Ray gets into his gang during a prison breakout and subsequent doings. Down the road a bit (literally) we meet up with Elke Sommer as the "secretary" of another drug underboss, and she turns out to have more to do with the plot than one might expect.

This film almost got four stars from me, because frankly the plot is full of holes, but for once the folksy theme song is not completely horrible (kind of catchy, in fact), the action sequences made me realize the Italians were at least on par with Americans in this regard (but the collateral damage is much better! Machine gun innocent bystanders! Why not?), and the cinematography is first rate and of course you have Ray Lovelock in a starring role, and Elke Sommer always raises a film by one star for me, because she's beautiful and has a charm all her own.

Be sure to watch the "extras" to see the Mike Malloy interview/introduction. It's very funny, entertaining, and informative.

Lukewarm Italian movie with handsome Ray Lovelack, sexy Elke Sommer
(with some nude scenes) and veteran Martin Balsam. Nothing special.
