The Tough Ones (Blu-ray) 88 Films Ltd


Umberto Lenzi, the legendary director of Cannibal Ferox, kicked off the Italian police film craze with this hyper-kinetic, ultra-violent, brain-blasting action thriller. Maurizio Merli stars as an Italian Dirty Harry, punching and shooting his way through the sleazy drug, sex, and crime infested cesspool of mid-’70s Rome, on the trail of a sadistic, machine gun-toting hunchback, played by Tomas Milian (Brother’s Till We Die).

Boasting a state-of-the-art 4K transfer of Lenzi‘s uncensored director’s cut, the new edition of The Tough Ones includes an incredible slate of special features and a “Grindhouse Version” of the US Brutal Justice release.
