I own this film. In fact, I own two copies of this film. In the early 2000's, I remember thinking that the film wants to be a Tarantino film or a Guy Ritchie film but is so poorly edited and disjointed, it could never even come close. However, I always thought that the relationship between the brothers was not only the best thing about the film but raised the film above mediocrity along with the off-kilter performance of Willem Dafoe.…
Even though this is Bava's unfinished film, I think it might be his best work. It is a tense, claustrophobic thriller that for the majority takes place in a hot, sweaty car full of three criminals that hijacked the car from a father trying to get his sick child to a hospital. They also have a lady in the car that opens up two of the criminals to despicable acts. DO NOT WATCH "KIDNAPPED". Mario's son, Lamberto, ruined the film by re-editing the film with additional scenes and the absence of Stelvio Cipriani's amazing score. Highly Recommended.
