Quoting myself from the CONTRABAND thread!

Quote
I was quite surprised to see such a thing in a crime film- I guess Caiano could have done great in the cannibal genre as well Undecided NAPOLI SPARA- that movie is so wild! The scene where the robbers attack that train, the truck chase and that little Fiat car falling down the cliff and exploding, the pregnant woman getting beaten in the opening scene, the castration, etc.... Only the Genarino kid and the comedic music theme were used as comic relief but its fine- I love that movie! Hoping to get the XXX version of Caiano's LA SVASTICA NEL VENTRE/NAZI LOVE CAMP 27 soon!

What are your thoughts on this crime classic?

I think there was a German DVD of the movie which was a cut version? Have you seen what it looks like Stephen?

No i haven't seen it but i've been told it's cut,sad thing is that it's on the usually reliable KochMedia label.
I think Jonny or Comp might have it as i remember reading something about it on the old forum.

Hey fellas - I've not got a disc of this and had no idea it was available. This is one of the few well-known cop flicks that I've not actuall seen.

Haven't got the German disc to hand at the moment, I'll try and locate it but I think I binned it! I remember getting it and was looking forward to putting an English soundtrack on it, ripped the elements to my hard drive and started work only to find it was cut, bullet hits and point blank machine gunning action during the train heist... I think I was so annoyed I might have broken it.

Johny, I know what you mean, I would be really mad as well if I were you. I would just be curious to see if the disc looks good despite the cuts. Was it remastered and widescreen?

They (KochMedia) also released the lovely looking VIOLENT NAPLES disc around the same time,i think this is the edition Alfa Digital/LFVW used for their English language release.

Yes, it looked really good, similar to the Napoli violenta disc they put out that, as Stephen said, Alfa used for their boot.

Such a shame Napoli spara! was cut,though at least we know there is a good looking print out there and can hope that someday someone will decide to release it.

I suppose the cut version could be used and the uncut scenes added (even if the quality isn't as good) or is this too hard cos i ain't got a clue

I tried doing that thing once before for THE LONG DAYS OF VENGEANCE but my PC couldn't handle it and would crash once I had loaded an hours worth of fucking editing.  Did my head in.  You need a good machine to do that kind of thing.
