Solid addition to the series, always funny but not the best

Another in the long-running line of Bruno Corbucci's Nico Giraldi series, this one relocating Tomas Milian's shabby cop to the bustling streets of New York and the scorched terraces of Miami rather than plain old Rome, his previous hunting ground. Despite the different setting the formula is the same as ever, with Milian's Giraldi using his wits and fists to capture a major villain - except this time the villain is the mob!

The emphasis is on the humour as usual, with a witty - and at times just plain crazy - script that gives Milian plenty of wisecracking banter to play with, and an emphasis on overacting supporting players offering up plenty of unusual characters for our scruffy hero to interact with. This time, there's a woman who looks like Woody Allen who has a crush on our hero; another woman, a nightclub dancer, with a whip fetish; a guy pretending to be dead on the kitchen table to avoid paying his debts, and much, much more.

The film stays watchable through a myriad of plot twists to keep you guessing, plus a fair amount of action sequences to keep things exciting. Notable inclusions are a madcap bar brawl and a chase on hover crafts which is pretty good. Milian is on top form as Giraldi and proves to be the best thing in the movie, whilst the supporting cast also offer more than adequate performances - especially the guy playing his buddy Salvatore, Enzo Cannavale, whose presence makes for some fine dialogue between the two leads. Not quite as good as my favourite in the series, 1977's HIT SQUAD, but instead a solid, fairly entertaining addition to the cycle.
