"CROWD PLEASING ACTION...Castellari's Direction Lends An Amphetamine-Laced Touch!" -- All Movie Guide

Product Description

ROBBERY. ASSAULT. MURDER. ONE MAN HAS HAD ENOUGH!

The legendary Franco Nero (of DJANGO and DIE HARD 2 fame) stars as Carlo Antonelli, an average citizen until the day he is brutally beaten during a violent robbery. But when the police drop the case and the suspects remain free, Carlo is pushed beyond his breaking point. Now one man will launch an all-out war against the criminal scum who plague our cities, where justice has its own rules, vengeance needs no badge and the only force that matters is STREET LAW.

Barbara Bach (BLACK BELLY OF THE TARANTULA, THE SPY WHO LOVED ME) co-stars in this vicious DEATH WISH-inspired crime thriller (also known in Europe as VIGILANTE II) directed by Italian action maestro Enzo G. Castellari (THE HEROIN BUSTERS, KEOMA) now presented uncut and uncensored - including all of its infamous violence - for the first time ever in America.

Tommy is a young man who tries to make a living by robbing nickel and dime places.
Gary L. Dibert
And last but not least, Romano Puppo, Nazzareno Zamperla, and Massimo Vanni play the three hoods who take Carlo hostage.
T O'Brien
Sorry this isn't a more detailed review, but frankly, I'm sick of writing it over and over.

A vigilante is just a man lost in the scramble for his own gratification. He can be destroyed, or locked up; but if you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, and if they can't stop you, you become something else entirely.

Henri Ducard - Batman Begins (2005)

I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!

Howard Beale - Network (1976)

Can't you people take the law into your own hands? I mean we can't be policing the entire city.

Chief Wiggum - "The Simpsons"

Street Law (1974) aka Il Cittadino si rubella aka Vigilante II...directed by Enzo G. Castellari (High Crime, Keoma, Bronx Warriors 2), the film stars popular Italian actor Franco Nero (High Crime, Keoma, Force 10 from Navarone, Die Hard 2: Die Harder). Also appearing is Giancarlo Prete (Mister X), Barbara Bach (The Spy Who Loved Me, Caveman), Nazzareno Zamperla (Ballad of Death Valley), Massimo Vanni (The New Barbarians), and Romano Puppo (The Heroin Busters).

The film begins with a four and a half minute display of various criminal activities including breaking and entering, vandalism, arson, theft, armed robbery, kidnapping, and murder...seems the criminals are running rampant and the authorities can do little to stop them. After getting all that out of the way we see a well-dressed man entering a bank and proceed to engage in some sort of transaction. Shortly after a gang of vicious masked gunman make the scene, manhandling patrons and bank employees alike. The well-dressed man, named Carlo Antonelli (Nero) tries to grab his dough on the counter, but gets brutalized by the robbers, who then grab him up (presumably as a hostage) during their getaway to which they beat the crud out of him in the car.

Released the same year as Death Wish, Enzo Castellari's Street Law has some similarities to the Charles Bronson revenge movie, but it's not fair to either movie to say one copies the other. They're both good movies, and that's enough for me. Genoan engineer Carlo Antonelli is taken as a hostage during a botched bank robbery and severely beaten before being dumped by the three robbers. But the police won't help him, he's still alive, so Carlo takes it upon himself to get justice, his methods becoming more harsh as the police continue to ignore him. The storyline's similar to Death Wish but does enough differently so you're not watching a straight remake. Like most Castellari movies, there's some great action here, including the opening car chase and the final showdown in an expansive, empty hangar. Add in another trippy but memorable score from the De Angelis brothers, Guido and Maurizio, and we've got a highly recommended Italian thriller. It does take a little time to get going, but once it does, you're in for a treat.

One of the most physical actors around in recent memory, Franco Nero is great as Carlo Antonelli, a fed-up man who decides to take justice into his own hands, regardless of who else his decisions might affect. Nero is equally good at handling action or emotional scenes, which comes off well here. Giancarlo Prete is very good as Tommy, a small-time crook Carlo blackmails into helping him. The two partners develop a real friendship as the movie progresses all leading up to the surprising ending. Barbara Bach has a small but effective part as Barbara, Carlo's girlfriend who worries he's gone too far. Renzo Palmer is very slimy as the police commissioner who may or may not be corrupt, but refuses to take Carlo's warnings seriously.

Alright, this is now the third time I've written a review for this film. My first two weren't posted and God only knows why, but hopefully this one will be. I'll be much more brief if that'll help. Street Law is an Italian(part of Blue Underground's Enzo Castellari triple feature) Death Wish inspired crime thriller. Franco Nero's a victim of a beating and decides to get revenge when the police end up being useless. Nero does a great job(some wonderful facial expresssions) as a far from perfect vigilante. Highly recommended for fans of the Italian style. Sorry this isn't a more detailed review, but frankly, I'm sick of writing it over and over.

Street Law is an good film,and the fact that Enzo G. Castellari has been described as an Reactionary certainly makes me like the movie more.This is an gritty even if at sometimes slow-paced Italian Action film,Good Car chase not an good car;However,I like the plot and moreso the Ending.One of the better Italian Films of the genre That I prefer.

Format: DVD
Enzo G. Castellari's Street Law aka Il Cittadino si Ribella is surprisingly entertaining and not quite the Death Wish clone the marketing promises, largely because Franco Nero's would-be vigilante is so hapless that he spends much of the film getting beaten up by the crooks he's trying to track down after being humiliated in a bank robbery. He's also a far from admirable figure who constantly breaks his word no matter how many times he gives it and frequently behaves like an out and out coward completely out of his depth. It's a long way from a great film, but it's shot with some style and imagination and an interesting use of derelict or decaying locations, among them a ship in dry dock - the ill-fated Achille Lauro, no less!

Blue Underground's DVD only offers the film in a dubbed English version, but it's a good transfer with a few decent extras - commentary by Enzo G. Castellari and Franco Nero, who both turn up in the retrospective featurette Laying Down the Law (which prominently features Nero's ego!), a US TV spot and dubbed Italian theatrical trailer
