Umberto Lenzi, the legendary director of Cannibal Ferox, kicked off the Italian police film craze with this hyper-kinetic, ultra-violent, brain-blasting action thriller The Tough Ones (aka Rome Armed to the Teeth). Maurizio Meril stars as an Italian Dirty Harry, punching and shooting his way through the sleazy drug, sex, and crime infested cesspool of mid-’70s Rome, on the trail of a sadistic, machine gun-toting hunchback, played by Tomas Milian (star of The Big Gundown).
Boasting a state-of-the-art 4K transfer of Lenzi‘s uncensored director’s cut, the new Grindhouse Releasing edition of The Tough Ones includes an incredible slate of special features (see below.) In addition, the first 2,500 orders will include a limited edition .30 calibre bullet-pen emblazoned with the "Tough Ones" logo.
