After brandishing his gun and badge too many times in front of powerful people, Maurizio Merli (Violent Naples and The Cynic, The Rat, and The Fist) is busted down from Homicide to Emergency Squad. Despite his demotion, he is not content with letting Rome’s criminal element run rampant and his violent nature soon finds him the target of both the press and the local mob. After a bloody attempt on his life, he is transferred to a quiet coastal town to run a local department but, never one to leave things alone, he quickly finds a dangerous smuggling ring is using the cover of the sea and darkness to run their operations in his sleepy district.
With it’s daring stunt work, violent shoot-outs, and split storyline, featuring a Stelvio Cipriani (Colt 38 Special Squad) score with excellent performances from Olga Karlatos (Zombie, Purple Rain) Massimo Serrato (Autopsy, Don’t Look Now) and Italian cinema stalwart Mimmo Palmara (Violent Rome, Sicilian Connection) Convoy Busters ranks highly among the 70s Italian Crime Genre.
