“I’m a gorilla, I’m not paid to talk.”

A big-shot Constructor and his daughter are threatened to be killed if he don’t pay a huge sum of money. A bodyguard (“Gorilla”) is hired. The “Gorilla” (Testi) gets mistrusted and fired. But still he has a plan to catch the blackmailers. Balancing on the edge of reason, the law, and the life of his brother, he is destined to take down the whole bunch.

An action-packed “poliziotteschi” from the golden days. Intense and entertaining with a good script. Testi is massive in the role as “Marco”. The scene with the train toward the end easily match the best chasing scenes from any James Bond-Movie. Check it out if you can find it!

The quality of this one was crappy but watchable. A digital copy from a bad greek VHS-copy. Would love to see this one on BLU-RAY.
