Released in Italy under the title MILANO ODIA: LA POLIZIA NON-PUÒ SPARARE (MILAN HATES: THE POLICE CAN'T SHOOT), this first collaboration between director Umberto Lenzi and star Tomas Milian remains a "degenerate treat" (Mondo Digital).
When a small-time criminal (a fearless performance by Milian) kidnaps a wealthy industrialist's daughter, he'll trigger a depraved spree of class warfare, sexual violence, mass murder and the rage of a police commissioner (Henry Silva) determined to end the carnage. Anita Strindberg (YOUR VICE IS A LOCKED ROOM...) and Ray Lovelock (LIVE LIKE A COP, DIE LIKE A MAN) co-star in "one of the peaks of the genre" (Indiewire) written by Ernesto Gastaldi (ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK) with a classic score by Ennio Morricone, now scanned uncut from the original negative.
