In this riveting Italian exploitation thriller, three young men embark upon a terrifying series of bloody crimes, engaging in robbery, gunplay, and murder.

1976's Italian crime opus "Young, Violent, Dangerous" fits squarely into the exploitation market of that period which glorified random and realistic violence with gleeful amorality. While the picture is well made and well acted, though, its characters are such ciphers that it becomes hard to develop any genuine connection to the film or its outcome. That's not to say that I didn't like it, because I did on a superficial level. I just wanted to care about ANY of the individual characters (didn't we root for "Bonnie and Clyde," wasn't the couple in "Badlands" eerily identifiable?) in a meaningful way. After watching "Young, Violent, Dangerous," though, I didn't feel like I knew any of the principles at all and so the emotional impact lacked punch. The central premise of the movie revolves around three affluent young men who go on a murderous crime spree with no apparent reason. The screenplay offers little in the way of actual development, and the brief moralizing that society and their parents created such monsters is really just a sociological platitude with no basis in anything else the film presents.

But still, as I said, the performers (though largely unexplored) are charismatic and talented. The movie opens with a young lady turning her boyfriend into a local police commissioner (Tomas Milian, who despite top billing is more of a supporting player) for a robbery that has yet to happen. She feels he's fallen in with the wrong element and wishes to protect him. The police stake-out the intended target and the resultant confrontation turns our trio of badboys into murderers on the lam for their lives. As they day progresses, they will get deeper and deeper into criminal mischief (including abducting the girlfriend) as the police close in.

I am an avowed fan of Italian movies, especially police and western genres. I'm not sorry I watched this one but have seen better.
