Fabio Testi (THE BIG RACKET, CONTRABAND) stars as a cold-blooded cop gone deep undercover to take down an international drug syndicate. But when a hair-trigger Interpol agent (David Hemmings of BLOW-UP, DEEP RED and GLADIATOR fame) joins the investigation, the case takes a deadly detour into sexual depravity and sudden violence. Can two tough detectives trapped in a criminal underworld now stay alive long enough to ignite a citywide massacre?
Sherry Buchanan (ZOMBIE HOLOCAUST) co-stars in this action-packed thriller - with an unforgettable motorcycle and airplane chase climax - co-written and directed by Enzo G. Castellari (HIGH CRIME, INGLORIOUS BASTARDS), featuring a pounding score by legendary prog-rockers Goblin (SUSPIRIA, DAWN OF THE DEAD) and now transferred from the original camera negative.

David Hemmings' Interpol cop doesn't have much to do apart from make the odd bad tempered speech or copping a feel from an obliging girl on a motorcycle while Fabio Testi is his usual monolithic self as the new boy on the crime scene trying to work his way into the mob. If anything Joshua Sinclair's villain makes more of an impression if only by virtue of his untrustworthy pencil `tache, cigarette holder and English accent that makes you wonder if Terry Thomas is a role model to Italian drug lords. Surprisingly Goblin's score works against much of the picture, especially the opening sequence that clumsily moves between Hong Kong, Amsterdam and New York, and Massimo De Rita and Galliano Juso's script is often shoddily constructed in the first half but it does at least offer a couple of odd surrealist touches and a gratuitous lesbian scene to keep the audience's interest while you're waiting for the action to kick off.Read more ›
It is unlike some DVDs of old movies that the pictures were blurry, grainy and fading and seems to be produced by Desert Island videos and Mr fat-W videos. I now avoid these two productions like I avoiding defects because there are defects.
