Merli who later appeared in MANNAJA, A MAN CALLED BLADE, is perfect for these kind of roles. Looking a bit like Franco Nero but more adept in the action scenes, he carries a mostly mean and mad look on his face the duration of the film and he's so good at it you can't help but cheer him on each time he nails one of the bad guys. If you've never seen one of these Italian Crime films this is a good place to start.
I've seen a good handful of Merli crime thrillers now and they've all been great,even more impressive (especially the roof of the tram scene) that Merli peformed all his own stunts. ;)

You seen some of the stunt work that Jean-Paul Belmondo did in some of his French crime flicks? The stunts in PEUR SUR LA VILLE are jaw-droppingly good!

Seriously, check out some of the Belmondo films form the 70s and VERY early 80s - PEUR SUR LA VILLE and LE PROFESSIONALE.

"Hack" is a term I despise and it would be more appropriate for somebody like Jess Franco who always manages to put you to sleep, even if you have just got out of bed. Lenzi is no hack though- he has made more than a handful of films (and I am not only talking about his crime and gialli) that are very entertaining and have a cult following. I bet all of these people that call him a hack would love to be in his place.
Maybe you only like conventional, unoriginal movies and that's why someone like Franco puts you to sleep? Franco has made twice the number of good movies that Lenzi has, admittedly he's made a lot of crap but which director hasn't?

I think that's a bit harsh suggeting he only likes conventional, unoriginal movies

I too like Jess Franco films but i think the best of Lenzi tower high above Franco's best work.

True, Lenzi has made a few stinkers but Franco's bad stuff is painful to try and sit through.

Well, at least I know that whenever I am suffering from insomnia, I can put on Franco's OASIS OF THE ZOMBIES and fall asleep, what an original movie that is  :-\  :-*

Yeah I admit I was a bit harsh but the point I was trying to make is that Franco has his fans too and they also get fed up with all the constant knocks he gets. He's basically done to Franco exactly what he says he hates people doing to Lenzi!

Hahaha! You were saying this to Lefteris? You should know him better than that by now, surely?

Are you Franco's manager or what? Everybody has their own opinion. You like him, I hate him. No need for arguments. To each their own.

The slagging of 'Oasis of the Zombies' if I'm not mistaken?

Wish I was Francos manager! I'd probably be bankrupt though. I made my point above and and see little point going on about it. At least to a bunch of Philistines. ;D
