  1. tsamaroden's rating of the film Kidnap Syndicate

    The poor always seem to suffer for the rich. Or at least they do in Kidnap Syndicate. I haven't seen many Fernando Di Leo films, but Kidnap Syndicate is my new favourite. Sure, it's a little talky at the beginning, but the film exudes so much cool and Luc Merenda as Colella, the father seeking revenge, is a hero worth cheering for. Great cinematography and a cool soundtrack make this a must see.

  3. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Kidnap Syndicate

    Beautifully shot, rivetingly paced thriller. Out High and Low's High and Low, in my book.

  4. Vinegar Factory's rating of the film Kidnap Syndicate

    Awesome film!! The music is a fantastic addition to an otherwise fantastic story. The motorbike chases are top notch! Great stuff.

    "If shit were worth something, the poor would be born with no ass."

  6. Dogville59's rating of the film Kidnap Syndicate

    Very good action film because it wasn't just about action. It was about greed, it had drama and the lead is gorgeous. Lots of car chases and revenge too.

  9. msmichel's rating of the film Kidnap Syndicate

    Pretty standard kidnap revenge yarn that delivers in the final third of the film. Unfortunately Di Leo seems to be thinking he was making a dramatic film for the first 2/3 and it comes off as pretty clichéd. Neither as violent nor as misogynist as the other Di Leo films of the period.

  10. Jack Duckworth's rating of the film Kidnap Syndicate

    smouldering Italian revenge flick, two excellent claustrophobic chase scenes, Luc Merenda excells.

  12. Michael Vilabrera's rating of the film Kidnap Syndicate

    Always enjoyed the underdog takes all out revenge. This is one for the archives

  13. klofter's rating of the film Kidnap Syndicate

    A kind of "High and Low" redux, without Kurosawa's meticulous mise en scene, but reimagined as as a more boisterous, nihilistic and action-packed pot-boiler. Surprisingly bold in some of the plot choices but ultimately more surface than substance, even though the first half suggests otherwise. Not without its qualities, however, and ultimately worth the time investment.

  15. barleeku@comcast.net's rating of the film Kidnap Syndicate

    Some good scenes but overall lacks the energy of the first two di Leo's I've watched. Shot well (no pun intended), crisp acting, police chief excellent and looks like Joe Torre. Worth viewing but talky and the plot is rather clunky.

  16. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Kidnap Syndicate

    Great poliziotti set in Milan, Italy. Di Leo's direction is nervous and effective. It reminded me Kurosawa's Between Heaven and Hell in certain occasions. Highly recommended.
