It's a good movie albeit slightly confusing as the action progresses. Sollima starts us out with the assassination of a high-level oil executive and a seemingly unrelated bank robbery that results in the death of Milo Ruiz's (Fabio Testi) partner. Ruiz heads off to prison for his crimes, a prison run by none other than Vito Cipriani (Oliver Reed), a no nonsense, profane former cop who is an even tougher warden. We learn what a tough guy Vito is when an inmate threatens to kill himself with a knife.Read more ›
I may be cynical, but sometimes I look at my DVD collection and see 50 copies of the same movie. Explosions, love interest, conservative "twist" ending, cut! Revolver may be just as derivative of 1970's flicks as the explosion fests of the 21st century are today, but for some reason it was refreshing to watch. I can't see anyone lavishing "rabid fanboy" praise on it, but Revolver was enjoyable, moving at times, and had two great performances. If you thirst for a change of pace, but want to retain the comfortable action standbys of guns and violence, Revolver may be right up your alley. The fantastic extras don't hurt either.
A decent extras package includes a featurette with Testi and Sollima plus trailer and stills gallery, although the 1.85:1 transfer is grainy in places.
Picture quality: 8/10
Aspect ratio: 1.78:1 (1.85:1 orig.)
Definitely one of the better "Giallos" from the 70s. Starring Oliver Reed, Fabio Testi and Agostina Belli ("Scent of a Woman", Dino Risi 1974 Profumo Di Donna (Scent of a Woman))
Directed by Sergio Sollima ("The Big Gundown", "Face to Face")

Great video. Testi and Reed have real chemistry and the drama is gripping. Reed wears his heart on his sleeve in this crime drama. Read morePublished on June 13, 2013 by Rodney M. Brown
