Audience Reviews for Ripped Off

½

From the BCI Collection of 10 Movies from Men Of Action Collection. This Movie has many Names The Boxer and Un uomo dalla pelle dura are just some of them. As the boxer of the story, Blake finds himself trying to investigate the murder of his manager/trainer Nick da Catarina (Gabriele Ferzetti) after winning a match that was supposed to be fixed. As you'd expect, he comes under suspicion himself, and gets further tangled up with the law as the story progresses. The film makers managed to get in a few body shots of their own against the Viet Nam War, most notably when police Captain Perkins (Ernest Borgnine) tried to use Teddy's war record of thirteen kills against him. At least Teddy had a good response.

I couldn't help feeling when the picture was over with things wrapped up, that there were still some loose ends lying around. The fairy tale ending with the extreme closeup of Catherine Spaak looking long and lovingly into the camera was so out of place that it seemed to negate everything that went before. After all, her father Nick was murdered, and there was a trail of dead bodies that followed as well. Seems like a tough way to go to find your soul mate. If I had to make a recommendation, I'd say watch an episode of Baretta. 2 1/2 stars 8-16-13
