Paul, Joe and Louie, three young men from good families, decide to go on a bloodthirsty and pointless crime spree, much to the dismay of Paul's girlfriend (Eleonora Giorgi) and the local police commissioner (Tomas Milian) . The group starts by robbing a gas station where Paul guns down three people. They later rob a bank and a grocery store where Paul kills off an entire other gang that was helping him rob the place. It isn't long before the entire police force is out to nab the 3 criminals, who pick up the girl and proceed to hightail it to the Swiss border.
Young, Violent, Dangerous is a very special kind of film: one that is purposeful masquerading as pulp. As a relic of 1970s Italian exploitation, it s a thrill ride chock full of blood and baddies. More than that, it s an important social commentary. Whatever your reasons for watching it are, whether you re a casual action fan or a serious film enthusiast, I assure you that this film will deliver plenty of pleasure. --Film Monthly
This was a gem I never saw coming. Originally released in 1976, the DVD transfer of Liberi, Armati, Pericolosi (Young, Violent, Dangerous) is a gorgeous, albeit disturbing film about renegade youth with nothing to do except raise hell and cause trouble. Think every senseless violent crime imaginable, then make three teenager the villains, add a few jokes, and you have this quintessential piece of Italian film history. --DVD Snapshot
God bless Raro Video USA for exposing American cult movie fans to more Eurocrime. Their latest release is appropriately titled Young, Violent, Dangerous, and is an ode to mayhem. --Twitch Films
