News & Interviews for La Scorta

Critic Reviews for La Scorta

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

Exciting as La Scorta might be, it is at heart a conventional thriller that breaks no new genre ground.

February 3, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4

La Scorta suffers from an anemic plot pulse.

January 31, 2006

Ultimately, La Scorta is a tight, competent but rather inconsequential thriller. It's diverting, but thin.

January 1, 2000 | Full Review…

Though not particularly deep or original, La Scorta displays intimate scale, taut narrative, and recognizably human characters; considering that it deals with crime, there's little violence on screen.

Audience Reviews for La Scorta


Somehow Tognazzi has dully rendered what should be riveting material about political and mafioso machinations in Sicilia. This film plays like a mediocre telanovela, devoid of artistry and utterly conventional. Maybe this is the reason Hollywood is remaking the movie.
