The police commissioner of Genoa tries to bring down an emerging crime organization. Franco Nero delivers another standout emotional scene after his daughter dies. I can't think of an actor who does that stuff better. That's why he is one of my favourites.

The police commissioner declares war on heroin traffickers in Italy. Marked by another emotionally powerful performance by Franco Nero, no one does it quite like Franco. Good cop flick that may improve with a quality dvd remastering.

Mediocre 70s crime drama. From Italy. Some decent stuntwork.

Another great entry from Castellari and Franco Nero. This is the first film they did together. High Crime isnt their best film they made together but it is damn entertaining! The violence is shocking and the squibs are bloody! Lots of hit and runs and a great attack with hooks and a great shoot out! What more could you want? Nero is a little over the top in his acting here but his physical ability to do action is awsome...and thats all part of his charm. And seeing James Whitmore was a suprise and a real treat! Castellaris direction is great, He definatly proved that this genre of film was his forte.

Pian piano il genere poliziottesco trova le sue regole: qui non siamo ancora nel pieno del genere, ma ormai è quasi tutto codificato. Mancano solo le battute truci in romanesco: l'ispettore che risolve tutto facendosi giustizia da solo c'è, l'azione violentissima c'è, l'assoluta fumettosità di tutto l'impianto c'è, la morale reazionaria c'è. Pochissimi mesi dopo uscirà "La polizia ringrazia" e saremo in pieno genere.
Castellari rivela in questo film doti eccezionali di regia da grande intrattenitore, sorretto da una storia complicatissima e interessante. Mentre sullo schermo si susseguono inseguimenti mozzafiato e sparatorie pazzesche, assistiamo anche a violenze mai viste al cinema prima d'allora (uccisioni con tanto di ganci infilati nella pancia, bambini straziati dalle ruote delle auto con dettagli grafici sadicissimi, eccetera). Ma tutto è a solo scopo d'intrattenere lo spettatore come fanno i fumetti che allora si leggevano sull'"Intrepido", e quindi il film scorre via con tutte quelle inquadrature velocissime e tutti i caratteri tipici delle vignette, dando un risultato finale del tutto divertente e per nulla disturbante.
Bellissima e orecchiabile come sempre la musica degli Oliver Onions (i fratelli De Angelis).
