Shoot First, Die Later
Directed by Fernando Di Leo
Desperately sought after, the tough, exciting, dramatically potent, action packed film Shoot First, Die Later is known as one of the most impressive Italian crime/police movies ever made.
Luc Merenda gives the performance of his career as a highly regarded police detective who is taking syndicate money in exchange for departmental favors. His father, a simple man, also works for the department but on a lower rung; he isn't jealous of his son, but rather proud of him, little knowing that he's a crooked cop. A series of events leads the young detective to ask his father for a favor (he wants a certain police report that is desired by the syndicate) and it doesn't take long for the detective's father to realize his son is on the take...which leads to numerous complications.
*Shoot First, Die Later will be part of the Fernando Di Leo Crime Collection Vol. 2 available July 2013.
