A fairly good actioner about some minor mafioso type hoodlums who rough up the locals on behalf of their bosses for protection money. When one small time hood, Rick, is roughed up by "Mr Scarface" Manzari (Jack Palance) and thrown out of his gang, he is taken in by wannabe hardman Tony from a rival gang. Together they plot to rob Manzari of several million Lira (this is pre-Euro, so we are probably talking about $50 USD!) and unintentionally spark a gang war, with both sides hunting their puny butts. As a result, both of the pretty boys are reduced to driving around Rome(?) in a "badass" (ROFL) dune buggy with some old fat bloke for comic relief. Little does Tony know that Rick has huge score to settle with Manzari - Manzari killed Rick's dad! The shoot out at the end is pretty good for a no-budget flick, and I did quite enjoy this one! 18/R for violence and nudity.
