Product Description

SEX, VIOLENCE AND A KICKASS SCORE BY GOBLIN ALL FULLY RESTORED FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN AMERICA!

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.

Excellent 70's Euro crime film starring the iconic Fabio Testi as a cop going deep undercover to bust up an international heroin ring. A lot of great location shooting, and non-stop action. Testi also performs his own stunts, which are very impressive. This is a great grindhouse classic, filled with violence, sex, and explicit drug use, and a cast of truly off-the-wall characters, this one is sure to entertain. This transfer from Blue Underground is beautiful, although it would have been nice if they had included the Italian audio with subtitles. But that is a minor detail. Recommended, especially for fans of Fabio Testi; this is one of his best..

For most of its running time Enzo G. Castellari's The Heroin Busters is an exercise in lazy plotting and almost arbitrary box ticking as it flatly trudges through the usual cops and drug runners clichés, which wouldn't matter so much if the action scenes were better. Unfortunately despite a decent botched evidence room robbery, it's a film that's saving most of its ammunition for its grand finale. But when it comes, it's a grand enough finale for you to forgive a lot of the padding it took to get there, the final twenty minutes offering a prolonged chase through a subway construction site and the ruins around the Caracarla Opera that displays the kind of verve and imagination so much of the film had been lacking until then, and clearly influencing both Diva and Lethal Weapon 3 along the way. It's well worth waiting for.

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.

If you love euro crimes you'll dig it, you just can't take it to seriously. Fabio Testi is awesome as always & Hemmings is a great choice for the co star, it's kind of a different roll than we're used to. It's fun & for the price just go for it.
