A group of bandits terrorize a city with racketeering, soon to be climbing up the ladder of organized crime with drugs, robberies, rape and murder. Everytime they get caught, their smart-ass lawyer gets them out. Inspector Nico has to use his contacts in the shadiest parts of the city to catch the bastards. A vigilante squad is gathered and the party begins.

One of the top “poliziotteschi”. Castellari (“Inglorious Bastards”) has made a fast-paced, hard-hitting and entertaining police movie. Fabio Testi (“Contraband”, “Go gorilla, go!”) fills his role as one of the toughest action-heroes of the 70’s. This action flick ends with one of the coolest shoot-outs of the genre. Pure entertainment! Check it out and enjoy!
