Brothers Till We Die (1978) -- When it comes to Italian crime films, Umberto Lenzi is undoubtedly the king of the Italian Polizi sub-genre, and while this film doesn t quite live up to the ones that went before it; Brothers Till We Die is still an interesting and entertaining little film that is sure to please fans of this sort of stuff. This was the last of Lenzi s crime collaborations with the great Tomas Milian, and it s also the most ambitious use of the actor. Here, Milian is given the task of playing two brothers, but since this is a cheapo Italian effort where special effects weren t really affordable, the effect is generated entirely through editing, and it has to be said that Lenzi does a good job.
The plot is somewhat routine and simply follows a familiar revenge curve. Francesco and Vincenzo are brothers; Francesco is a bum better known as Pigsty and Vincenzo is a hunchback who gets called Humpo (you gotta love Italians!). The plot focuses more on Vincenzo, a wanted man who rears his hump in order to commit another robbery. However, things don t go to plan as his accomplices decide to shoot him (he s too noticeable, and therefore runs a risk of getting them all caught). Vincenzo manages to drag himself into a sewer, and then proceeds to get revenge...
