Almost Human

Rating: 8/10

Uberto Lenzi’s poliziotteschi about a small-time criminal who decides to kidnap an heiress and ends up killing just about every person he meets. Throughout he’s pursued by a hard-nosed police inspector played nicely by Henry Silva. The first half of the film is gritty, brutal, and has a lot going for it. Unfortunately, it kinda drops the ball with the character development. Tomas Milian kills a guy in the first three minutes but then there’s no story arc beyond this first sadistic turn. Yet still, it is entertaining to watch and I wasn’t bored for a second.
