A hipcamp project, adding an Italian dub and English subs to a rip of the German rental tape.

“This is surely one of the lamest poliziotteschi I’ve ever come across, with just about the only thing going for it being the unusual and exotic Istanbul locations. Even nominal star Luc Merenda is underused; in fact, a lot of the running time is devoted to a Turkish family man who happens to be an infallible sharpshooter, and is unwillingly recruited by the mob in order to eliminate narc cop Merenda (whom he has actually just befriended!). One of the funniest things in the film is the fact that every male in Turkey is seen to be sporting a moustache! Otherwise, the concoction is the same as before: tough hero (heroes in this case), above-the-law financiers discussing their criminal business around a dinner table, their vicious thugs and abused molls, kidnappings, fisticuffs, shoot-outs, a bit of gratuitous nudity, bad disco soundtrack, etc.” [imdb]
