Storyline

Crime boss Uncle Frank (Edmond O'Brien) and rival crime boss Big Eddie (Bradford Dillman) decide the city is too small or not big enough for two crime bosses, so one of them must go. It's a fight to the death with gang members winding up at the bottom of the river encased in cermet foot-ware, chewed up by the garbage detail, bombed out or machine gunned down. They import help. Uncle Frank hires profession killer Harry Crown (Richard Harris) and pays him 100 G's to rub out Big Eddie, and the latter sends for Marvin "Claw" Zuckerman (Chuck Connors), a sadistic and demented killer, who is one hand short of having two hands. And Marvin hates Harry because it was Harry who cut off his hand when Marvin savagely mistreated a girl. In between all the blood and bullets, there is time for romance. Harry resumes an affair with Buffy (Ann Turkel), a third-grade schoolteacher (school-class status and not a rating), and Tony (David Hall), a hotshot young gangster assigned by Uncle Frank to assist ...

The title describes this dud
27 January 2004 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

When a hit man is hired to cap a fellow crime boss all stupidity breaks loose. I can't say it was a total dog because I actually enjoyed the thing, but it was a little too ridiculous for my taste. I always enjoy Rich Harris, and Chuck as "Claw" was a real treat; they did a good job spoofing crime film: however "Johnny Dangerously" did it better.
