An uncompromising cop gets transferred to Naples on account of this city's atrocious crime levels. His no-hold-barred police methods are considered to be the perfect anti-dote.

Umberto Lenzi's "Napoli Violenta" is a first class cop movie that really shocked me. It's exciting and really memorable with some nasty bits of violence (including a fence post impalement and bowling ball facial). Maurizio Merli is great as a veteran cop named Betti. He sets out to clean up a protection racket run by the Commandant (Barry Sullivan). Along the way, Betti befriends a little boy whose father is murdered by the criminals. Since Merli passed away in 1989, "Violent Protection" attained almost a cult status in some places. There are some great car chases and plenty of exciting gun-play. So if you're a fan of Italian crime genre give this one a look. Highly recommended.
