Enrico Maria Salerno is brilliant as the police officer who tries to discover the big ones behind the vigilante group. Mario Adorf is convincing as ever - once more portraying a rather dubious district attorney. This Italian-German co-production is also remarkable for singer Jürgen Drews who plays one of the criminals that fall victim to the vigilantes.
One of the better Italian crime films of the genre, it's also a fairly obscure one and although the plot is hardly original, the film never lets up and delivers more than it's fair share of thrills. Marcel Bozzuffi (of French Connection & Fulci's Contraband amongst other) is as reliable as always, this time as Inspector Grifi who sets up a special unit of commandos (the 'stunt squad') to combat the rise of violence towards innocent shop owners who refuse protection from the rackets.
