Street Law (1974)

Director: Enzo G. Castellari

Starring: Franco Nero, Giancarlo Prete, Barbara Bach, Renzo Palmer, Nazzareno Zamperla

More info: IMDb

Tagline: will blow you away!

Plot: Carlo Antonelli, an engineer from Genoa, gets mugged and decides to take justice into his own hands. At first the muggers seem to get the upper hand, but then he's helped by Tommy, a young robber who takes his side.

My rating: 7.5/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

Right after watching NIGHT MOVES (1975) and it not satisfying my need for action crime, I slapped in this Italian flick with the great Franco Nero.  He's awesome.  This picture's got the guns and guts I was hoping for with the earlier flick.  The Italians made gazillions of these Polizi pictures in the 70s (that spilled over into the early 80s) and this one's definitely one of the better ones.  If it's got Franco Nero in it, it's a good bet it's good.  It's got a groovy score by Guido & Maurizio De Angelis and the ending is very satisfying in that DEATH WISH (1974) kind of way.
