A great movie - real action - captures the period - authentic - unlike Hollywood plastic products. Best with French dialogue - English subs.

Importatn to remember it's the follow on from Borsalino - essential to see that first.

Delon finds himself on the losing side of a gang war in 30s Marseilles. But don't worry -- the crease in his slicked back hair won't stay mussed for long. Lavish period crime saga moves at a very fast clip and while some of the action gets pretty brutal, it's almost irresistibly entertaining. (I had no idea this was the sequel to the earlier picture with Belmondo -- though the first shot should have clued me in. For me it worked as a standalone, though I'm now anxious to see the first.)

Borsalino and Co. begins with the funeral of Jean-Paul Belmondo's character from the first film, leaving Alain Delon to hold the fort almost single-handed, and the results aren't as entertaining as they could be as he swears revenge and finds himself on the losing side of a gang war with a gang of Italian fascists looking to destabilise the country through crime and drugs, with Marseilles a natural starting point. The choice of villains are interesting, as are their weapons of choice - they prefer to kill underlings and employees (even blowing up a bad music hall comic in the middle of his act: a bit redundant considering he was clearly dying long before the bomb went off) while publicly humiliating their bosses - but the film never really rises above the average. There's plenty of stylish décor and sharp suits, a couple of decent shootouts but not much fun (it's an hour before Claude Bolling's famous theme from the first film is heard), so it's no surprise that the US-set sequel promised by the end title never materialised.

The poor standards conversion transfer on Kino's region 1 DVD doesn't help matters either. Extras are stills gallery, original theatrical trailer, and trailers for The Sicilian Clan, Flic Story, Two Men in Town, Mort d'un Pourri, Trois Hommes a Abbatre, Pour la Peau d'un Flic, Le Battant, Parole de Flic and Ne Reveilles pas un Flic Qui Dort.

I gave this film three stars because I can't send in the critique otherwise. Mainly this is a warning that, from its amazon link, one might get the wrong impression that this is the same film as BORSALINO when it's actually a sequel. Maltin gives BORSALINO a high rating, but doesn't review this movie.
