THE LAST ROUND is a gritty, violent updating of A FISTFUL OF DOLLARS and FOR A FEW DOLLARS MORE. Former middleweight boxing champion Carlos Monzón
stars as a drifter who arrives in town with nothing but a music box and pictures of two dead women. Offering himself as a hired hand to the murderous Manzetti clan (led by Luc Merenda
, star of GAMBLING CITY), Marco makes a side deal with the Manzettis rivals, the Belmondo family (headed by THE RETURN OF SABATAs Mario Brega
), setting the two gangs against one another in a bloody power struggle that will leave more dead than alive. Revenge is the motive
and hell to pay for both guilty and innocent.
Directed by spaghetti western veteran Stelvio Massi (I AM SARTANA
TRADE YOUR GUNS FOR A COFFIN), this obscure Italo-crime film was written by Piero Regnoli (I Vampiri, THE PLAYGIRLS AND THE VAMPIRE). Shot by veteran Italian cinematographer Franco Delli Colli, and scored by Luis Enriquez Bacalov, whose orchestrations grace films from Sergio Corbuccis DJANGO to Quentin Tarantinos KILL BILL, VOL. 1-2.
Only available via bootleg videotapes, THE LAST ROUND is presented by NoShame as a deluxe collectors edition, remastered from the original negative and bursting with so many extras that it should be against the law!
