Synopsis

Shoot first die later: Desperately sought after and never before released worldwide Rarovideo is proud to be releasing the tough, exciting, dramatically potent, well acted and action packed film, Shoot first, Die Later which 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.

Reviews

I am a huge fan of gangster movies, I’ve seen them all and Fernando Di Leo is without a doubt, the master of this genre.
— Quentin Tarantino
The film has yet to emerge on DVD anywhere in the world; only low-quality bootlegs currently exist. Highly Recommended.
— Indiewire
When it comes to gritty action set pieces very few of Fernando di Leo’s contemporaries come close to capturing the ferocity that is evident in all of his crime thrillers. Right from the get go he establishes a brutal tone that lingers throughout with an opening sequence involving torture. And though this is just one of many violent moments in the film, Fernando di Leo also spends an ample amount of time establishing both character and motivation.
