| Gonzoid car chases, gratuitous slo-mo squibs and full-blooded fisticuffs!
'Hunted City' (1979) aka 'Sbirro, la tua legge è lenta... la mia... no!' While somewhat of a late entry in the Poliziottesco cannon, it is also a far from forgettable actioner! Dynamic director, Stelvio Massi & the estimable, Merli are said to have been great friends and this tangible chemistry translates into an entirely watchable, violent, and entertainment-engorged Euro-crime thriller! Featuring a rare, low-key performance from erstwhile tyro performer, Merli, which adds much needed depth to his default two-dimensional stoic and vengeful police chief persona; and the characteristically rotund, Merola excels as the bovine, violence-prone hood. Massi films are generally robust, watchable affairs and 'Hunted City' is no exception; particularly of note are his dynamic, savvy camera angles which eek as much tension as possible from scenarios that might strike one as wildly pedestrian in a lesser director's timorous hand. All the Euro-crime goodness is present and correct in this zesty actioner: plentiful, gonzoid car chases, gleefully gratuitous slo-mo squibbage, and Meli's full-blooded, round-housed fisticuffs to quell errant skells bellicose brains!!!! I, for one, found this singularly sterling Merli/Massi collaboration to be immensely exhilarating and certainly worthwhile for those canny, celluloid thrill-seekers, both new to the genre, and older lags such as I!
