“I’m giving you the special squad you asked for. You Have my word!”
A commissioner forms a secret motorized brigade with Colt 38 handweapons in order to fight a dangerous terrorist depositing bombs in the city of Turin.
Well made action movie. It has it’s slow paced moments, but still pretty hard-edged. Some unnecessary, but cool action scenes amps up the tension. The casting and characters are great. Combined with a good story and realy cool cinematography this works excellent. Grace Jones has a cameo as a nightclub-singer.
Loads of extras. Interviews, introductions, trailers, booklet and an extra disc with the movie “La Bidonata” (1977) by the great Luciano Ercoli. I’ll probably dive into it soon.
