Product Description

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.

Review

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

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.

Surprisingly good euro-crime/poliziotteschi with fantastic photography shot in beautiful Milano. It's much better than Castellari's "Street Law". The performances by all the actors are great. For only $6,99 this is a must have. Beautiful cover.

3.0 out of 5 stars By The Numbers Euro Crime Drama July 11, 2013

Italian Film maker Fernando Di Leo turns his director reins over to Director Romolo Guerrieri and scribes Raro Video's latest crime release 'YOUNG VIOLENT DANGEROUS' aka 'LIBERI ARMATI PERICOLOSI'- 1976 , a film posing as a poliziottesci genre film from the DVD box cover art but emerges as a routine juvenile delinquent film which Hollywood B-movie makers cranked out during the late fifties. This time the violence is more prolific but the main leads are purely one dimensional as we are asked to convey emotion to three spoiled misfits who go on a violent killing crime spree( which is never explained but the film tries to blame the parents of the trio for their lack of communication and guidance) climaxing in a violent showdown within their clique. Actor Tomas Milian, who to me will always be the Italian Al Pacino, takes back stage to the three leads as the inspector and the beautiful Eleanora Giorgi plays one of the trio's girlfriend and hostage and provides the eventual gratuitous topless scene which aids them during their chase. Director Guerrieri who directed a few Spaghetti Westerns such as my favorite '10,000 DOLLARS FOR A MASSACRE' aka '10,000 DOLLARI PER UN MASSACRO'-1967 and the underrated Giallo 'THE SWEET BODY OF DEBORAH' aka 'IL DOLCE CORPO DI DEBORAH'-1968 moves the film at a breezy clip using on-location shots throughout. The only real thorn in the side is the up beat Harmonica oriented music score by Enrico Pieranunzi which throws off the feel of the film. Raro Video releases it in a 1.85 transfer with slight green speckles and a blatant blue line showing up dead center during a shot but overall is quite nice and could almost pass as a 1080P Blu-Ray release.
