Leonard Mann is the Man.
The director Giuseppe Rosati set out to make a great movie and minus a little bit of slow pacing he almost succeeded. What we have is a very good movie with a pitch perfect performance by charismatic leading man Leonard Mann (Police Capt Murri) who, I must admit, I was not familiar with prior. James Mason is also great as the less (Senator Leandri). Veteran Eurospy girl Antonella Murgia is also a doll as Capt Murri's mellow girlfriend. The only off kilter performance was by Raffaele Curi as (officer Martino) who I guess was supposed to be a bit of comic relief but was out of place with the noir feel of the film.
Don't give up on this movie as it all comes together in the last half hour, even thought the movie on Youtube has a scene out of sequence, with some vengeance scenes worthy of Charlie Bronson. No dough this movie would have been a bore fest without the fabulous performance by Leonard "the man" Mann.
