sorry for the mistakes!
The last round
If Carlos Monzón gets angry, should be problems for everyone, or
almost, as Gianni Dei throws him a stone and knocks him down.
And if the director is Stelvio Massi, then Luc Merenda is among the
protagonists and there is the music of Bacalov, shouldn’t be any
problems, but at the end it’s enough only a poor script
(much lighter than a stone), to knock down everything.
However, the good Stelvio Massi tries to change, starting from the
genre, leaving the poliziottesco and throwing himself into the
noir/ganster and using excellent actors and characters. Not to mention
that we are grappling with a history of struggle and revenge, a bit 'to
"A Fistful of Dollars", as immediately suggests the character of Luc
Merenda who shot form right to theleft.
At the end, however, the story is poor, lacking important twists and
full of predictable situations between meetings and challenges at the
last glance. Even the characters are not big news as the prostitute
with a heart of gold (Mariangela Giordano), the poor blind little girl
played by Leonora Fani, who makes a very bad end and gangsters from the
thirties. The music of Bacalov, however, not at best and very careful
direction/ photography are not enough to elevate us from boredom.
Carlos Monzón is Marco Russo, a man from the south who goes up
north to look for work. He immediately shows his strength knocking down
a large group of people protesting in front of a factory.
Struck by so much verve Benny Mazzetti (Gianni Dei) convinces his
brother Rico (Luc Merenda) to hire him among his henchmen. And he gets
paid, for some reason, in dollars.
Bobo Belmondo the always great Mario Brega (another link with Leone) is
another criminal who is warned by Russo of the trap that the Manzetti
brothers have come up with during an imminent pacification reception
The double game of Russo unleashes a feud and above all hides a very specific plan: the revenge for the murder of his sister.
A super cast that also includes Giovanni Cianfriglia, Claudio Ruffini,
Luisa Maneri Susanna Gimenez (partner of Monzón in life),
Giampiero Albertini and the inevitabile Nello Pazzafini.
There is everything, too bad the story is missing.
