At the DTM forum, someone from Anolis personally confirms that their new Italian crime DVDs does NOT have English options...  :-[
Thanks Magnus,thought we might have been lucky as Anolis/EMS are usually good when it comes to English options.

Claudio Undari aka Robert Hundar who starred as one of the Calabresi gang in this as well as numerous other classics of Italian genre cinema sadly died 2 weeks ago of natural causes.

This is the only crime film by Lenzi that I didn't like at all. I know you guys will crucify me for that but I hate the Monezza character, I find him very annoying. I found the film very slow-moving and uninspired compared to Lenzi's other crime efforts. Henry Silva was hardly in the movie too. Perhaps I could give it a second chance, but not anytime soon!

That's exactly how I felt about it, love all his crime films apart from this one. Maybe it was the absence of a Franco Micalizzi score. Though the version I saw was horrible quality.

Are there ANY English friendly release of this one? I might buy the German DVD if there isnt any English friendly version, cause i understand some German but not fluently, so i rather buy the German DVD instead of the Italian one as the German one has the German dub.

i recently got a copy of this from ebay, its a bootleg with a picture on the front of monezza titled il ritorno del monezza and a synopsis of free hand for a tough cop on the back. the picture quality and sound are both fine.
i think its a very entertaining film, it has some funny moments such as when milian and casinelli disguise themselves as painters and it dosent detract from the harder edged action. i thought casinelli was exellent in this film and would recomend it.
