Editorial Reviews

One of the most impressive Italian crime/police movies ever made, desperately sought after and never before released worldwide, Rarovideo is proud to be releasing the tough, exciting, dramatically potent, action packed film: SHOOT FIRST DIE LATER. Luc Merenda (Hostel: Part II) gives the performance of his career as a highly regarded police detective who is taking syndicate money in exchange for departmental favors. His father, a simple man, also works for the department but at a lower level; he isn't jealous of his son, but rather proud of him, little knowing that he's a crooked cop. A series of events leads the young detective to ask his father for a favor (he wants a certain police report that is desired by the syndicate) and it doesn't take long for the detective's father to realize his son is on the take, which leads to numerous complications. In English and Italian with English Subtitles. BONUS FEATURES: Original Italian and English trailer (Digitally restored), Documentary: ''The Master of the Game'' (Il Padrone del Gioco), Documentary: ''The Second Round of the Game'' (La seconda mano del Gioco), A 20 page fully illustrated booklet on the genesis of the film, New and improved English subtitle translation

5.0 out of 5 stars Shoot First, Die Later BLU-RAY review May 3, 2013
Throw away your barely watchable Greek VHS bootlegs! "Shoot First, Die Later" finally shows itself on Blu-Ray from Raro Video! My most anticipated home video title so far this year finally arrived in my mailbox last Monday (it shipped directly from Raro ahead of street date) and looks great. Also known by its original, and more fitting Italian title "Il poliziotto è marcio" (which roughly translates to "A Dirty Cop"), "Shoot First..." is yet another highly entertaining poliziesco from the master of the genre, Fernando Di Leo. It has all of his signature touches: A somewhat downbeat yet intense sense of pacing featuring realistic characters (at least compared to the comic book styling of most other Italian crime films), a great score from Luis Bacalov (It is reminiscent of his scores for the other Di Leo films but more subdued. There is even an Osanna ballad, "There Will Be Time", from the "Milano calibro 9" LP that plays during the love scene), and a truly dark ending which comes pretty unexpectedly.

This one is a real "lost" treasure because it was unavailable in a decent format until now and is the final film Di Leo did at what I consider the peak of his career after his famous mafia "trilogy" (Milano calibro 9, La mala ordina, Il boss). This film was followed by some lesser but still entertaining action films (Kidnap Syndicate, Blood and Diamonds, Rulers of the City) as well as a few middle-of-the-road action/comedies (Nick the Sting, Loaded Guns). Hopefully all of these will make it to the English speaking Blu-Ray world - "Rulers of the City" on Blu in the Di Leo box set vol. 1 looks terrible with lots of artifacts and artificial grain structure - it really needs an upgrade, and "Blood and Diamonds" is his best late 70s crime film that is hard to see in English.

4.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Release For This Di Leo Crime Classic May 29, 2013
SHOOT FIRST, DIE LATER has been hailed as "one of the most impressive Italian crime/police movies ever made," and that's largely due to the inspiration of director Fernando Di Leo. Di Leo began his career in films as a screenwriter, penning mostly uncredited work on such spaghetti westerns as A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS and FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE. As his career progressed, he eventually was offered the director's chair; before he retired, he helmed an impressive 23 titles. His work is constantly cited as inspiration to the likes of Quentin Tarantino and John Woo. SHOOT FIRST, DIE LATER was released in 1974, and it remained sought after by film buffs and fellow art aficionados for years because it was never released worldwide.

Raro Video has finally answered that call with this new release.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of characters and plot. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last two paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

Police detective Domenico Malacarne (played with conviction by Luc Merenda) appears to be an unstoppable force on the right side of justice. He maintains an impressive track record of bringing down some of the greatest culprits to date, but, despite all of the acclaim, he harbors a dangerous secret: he's actually on-the-take, a cop bought and paid for with syndicate money. After an unfortunate series of events puts Domenico's father (also an officer of the law) in the mob's crosshairs, the detective finally realizes he can no longer cover his tracks.

2.0 out of 5 stars Save your money on this one June 1, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The blue ray was OK. The sound was dubbed to english, and was OK. Just not a great movie with a couple of long car chases, that we all know could never happen. This is a movie you will watch one time, and than sell it at a yard sale for one dollar.
