The Hired Gun (1975) -- Unusual poliziottesco on a topical subject i iEuro-Culti regular Fabio Testi is an undercover cop doubling as the bodyguard (hence, iGorillai) of a cantankerous middle-aged industrialist targeted for extortion. Amazingly, to bring the culprits out into the open, he beats the criminals at their own game by purporting to kidnap his own master (with the aid of his delinquent brother); to complicate matters further, he becomes involved with the industrialistis own rebellious teenage daughter (naturally, she falls for him in the blink of an eye)!

The rest of the ingredients are par for the course within this genre: pulsating score, nonstop action (notably a heart-pounding scene in which Testi is trapped inside a bottom-less elevator and the FRENCH CONNECTION-inspired chase finale involving a police car and a speeding train i the chief villainis demise is particularly stunning), Testiis best pal (Al Lettieri from THE GETAWAY and THE GODFATHER {both 1972}) turns out to be corrupt, etc.
