"Out of the Past?" "Act of Violence"?

^ It's true, any movie where the bad guy guts himself and pulls out his own intestines to strangle his enemy is instantly bad ass.

Definitely, love this movie.
Italian cinema has always had the edge on being 'bad ass'. Spaghetti westerns and gialli were no holds barred, but poliziotteschi (crime films) could be even worse since they routinely had women and children as victims of gun fights.

right in the beginning i knew it was no holds barred. was just shocked by the wanton careless disregard for life that i was entranced throughout. such a simple premise that you wonder why it hasn't been copied in formula more and why the putrid remake didn't stick closer to the original.
just a fun fun ride.
This is the exact same reaction I had when I first saw this movie a few years ago.

I agree with about 95% of these, but there's a few that I cannot believe are as yet unaddressed:

Re: Post movies that are bad a**.

This thread has got a "movie your obsessed with" thread feel and I'm already seeing some rollovers....and I love it. Here's a few flicks to make you feel like a pussy:


...This guy is walking the streets of Australia as we speak.


...I've got a Kiwi friend I met in Paris and he recommended two things to me, this film and Roots Manuva (UK rapper). I'm still thanking him to this day.


...Every Danish person I've met has left me thinking that Danes are the friendliest people on Earth, this film makes me think differently.
