Quotes

Tania Scarlotti: And you locked me up in here, won't you afraid I'm not trying to kill myself?
Ray Castor: I watched you. Another type of girl would've killed herself. Want something else?
Tania Scarlotti: No. Not bad. Where did you learn to cook, kidnap school?
Ray Castor: Let's talk about you, for unshift.
Tania Scarlotti: OK. I'm not like you, I'll answer.
Ray Castor: Were you in love with the professor?
Tania Scarlotti: Once, yes. But not anymore.
Ray Castor: That's not very original.
Tania Scarlotti: He's intelligent, kind. Human qualities you might find in yourself if you bother to look.
Ray Castor: Those make bad judgements.

A young boy witnesses the murder of his father, years later he takes vengeance on the mobsters that killed him
4 May 2008 | by massbitsSee all my reviews

A young boy witnesses the murder of his Father by vicious mobsters, 20 years pass the Kid now a young man (Christopher Mitchum) plots his one man vengeance trail on all those responsible for his Father's death. Hot on his heels is a hard boiled cop (Karl Malden) who has been hired by he Mob to stop the kid, who has already killed a fair few of the Mob, The Kid's ace in the hole, is when he kidnaps the daughter (Oliva Hussy) of the leader of the Mob (Raf Vallone)in order to lure him out to make him an easy target, However things get more complex for the Kid as the two young'ns gradually fall for one another. A great piece of 70's Euro trash exploitation, with nice cinematography,great Motorbike stunts by the master Remy Julian and his posse of stunt men and a great score by Luis Baclov (Django). Both Mitchum and Hussey are excellent in their roles and they seem to develop some sort of surreal chemistry. Karl Malden makes the best of a very sparse script,
