| All the Bits in the Right Place
There are a lot of things that go into a crime film, from car chases to clever plots by the crooks to betrayals and turn-arounds, power struggles, etc. This one is memorable in that it gets full marks for all the bits that go into one, and it delivers that for more than an hour and a half full stop. The dialogue was a bit trite at times, which is why I gave it 9/10, but if you like *any* kind of crime movie, I think you would not only like this one, it's one of those that has you thinking about it for a while afterwards. I grabbed a big pizza pie and a nice red wine and really enjoyed watching this. The director did all the usual Italian filone, but was pretty mediocre with his Westerns and it took him a while to get going with this filone, but I think in this one he hit his straps. I think this was actually better than his good, later, Roma Violenta. Has to get 9/10 in my book as it's a good example of the genre that transcends it to compete across the broader genre, in every era.
