Is it worth seeing " Rome come Chicago " ?
14 July 1999 | by jackal-37See all my reviews

A film also screened in some countries under the title : " Murder on Via Veneto " . Artistically speaking this movie is worth nothing , a gangster cat and mouse game directed by A.Martino , a director known for his cheap spaghetti westerns and peplums ( Django & Sartana , Ringo , Ercole....). So what on earth is the great John Cassavetes doing in this movie ? Looking to earn some money as an actor ? I don't think so , because it's a low budget drama . The only memorable moments of the film are of course the scenes where Cassavetes is in , so if you have nothing to do check this movie out as a curiosity . If not re-watch Sergio Leone's :" Once upon a time in America" and forget Martino.
