4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Grindhouse-Era Italian Crime Classics, September 7, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fernando Di Leo Crime Collection (Caliber 9 / The Italian Connection / The Boss / Rulers of the City) (DVD)
[FERNANDO DI LEO - THE ITALIAN CRIME COLLECTION - (1973-74-76) -Widescreen presentation] Excellent collection of four grindhouse-era crime flicks that are impeccably digitally restored and remastered, housed in a nice box loaded with bonus features along with a great booklet with photos, a bookmark and a lengthy interview with Fernando Di Leo. The slim cased dvd's feature original poster art as covers and the films themselves are in Italian with English subs instead of the cheesy, cartoonish dubbing that's prevalent in many similar-era crime dramas. This makes for a much more entertaining and accurate viewing experience. A first-class treatment all the way and one I'd heartily recommend. (And I didn't have any of the issues other reviewers have stated).

Of the four films, 'Caliber 9' and 'The Italian Connection' are the best of the lot, though all four are solid examples of social, criminal and political extremism and corruption as exemplified by a true master of the genre. At times insanely garish, ultra-violent, intricately plotted and peppered by petty gangsters, whores and pimps with allegiance to no one, this set is a bargain to aficionados of all types of crime dramas and grindhouse flicks. Steal yours now.

Funny how pathways meet again. This very item has been in my basket for some time, and it feels like it really wants to end up on my shelves and in my player - it'll have to wait a little bit mo', though. No futher proof needed, we DO have tastes in common, Mr A.C.R.

Fritz - we sure do. I thought that for the price, this was a great way to get 4 flicks - 'Caliber 9' was my primary interest, and it costs $17.99 US for that one alone, and I got the box for $19.99 w/ free shipping - a no brainer, IMO. The restoration is amazing - let me know what you think when you get around to purchasing it. Stay well.
