Recently watched this after a few years of not seeing it, and totally loved it 100 times more than I remembered.  It has pretty much everything you'd want in an Italian crime film:  plenty of violence/a rogue cop out for vengeance/awesome car chases/great soundtrack, and just enough action to keep it flowing at a steady pace.  This is definitely one of the best.  It doesn't hurt that I'm a huge Luc Merenda fan either.

I saw this all last night. Not the best I have seen, but enough to enjoy. I like anything with Richard Conte. Here's my U.S. copy, which has similiar art to the cover above. Why the artist chose that weird, "Ooooowff! Got me in the gut, copper!" expression for him is beyond me, though.

I'm a fan of The Violent Professionals. Martino has made (in my opinion) better flicks, but I have a soft spot for this one.

I can’t say for sure, sorry. I have this on a doublebill with MILANO ODIA (ALMOST HUMAN), which was released in Italy by Alan Young Pictures about six or seven years ago. That release had subtitles but you really never know.

Thanks for the reply. Never seen this one and don't want to plump for a secondhand Vipco...  :)

There's also a Wild East release from the US but like the Vipco version is non-anamorphic. These and the Alan Young releases are all uncut though.

I picked THE VIOLENT PROFESSIONALS up on the UK Vipco double bill with THE BIG RACKET and I have to say, I was a bit underwhelmed by it. It's a little classier (if that's the right phrase) than the Castellari Polizia entries I've seen but I think I enjoyed it a little less for that.

Aside from some epic car chases and the great use of the open-hand slap for perp beat-downs there wasn't much that thrilled me and it doesn't move along briskly enough for my liking. One thing I did like a lot about it, is the way Giorgio boldly straddled the cop world and the criminal underclass, just kicking down doors and roughing everybody up.

I remember thinking Violent Professionals was a bit of a let down, very forgettable. :(

I got a really nice lbx dvd-r of this film after reading this thread. Thought the film was very entertaining. I enjoyed, too, the "political" element the film had. The plot sort of reminded me of Magnum Force. Interesting that both films came out the same year.
