Banda del Gobbo, La (1977, ITA) C-99m. SCOPE * D: Umberto Lenzi. Starring Tomas Milian, Pino Colizzi, Isa Danieli, Sal Borgese, Luciano Catenacci, Tom Felleghy. Crime drama with Milian in a double role: he plays a ruthless hunchback and his twin brother, a mentally retarded mechanic. When Il Gobbo (=the hunchback) is double-crossed at a hold-up he seeks revenge on his partners who'd rather see him dead. Solidly filmed but boring, not funny and trivial. There's not even enough action to keep you entertained. Milian had played a hunchback before in Lenzi's ROMA A MANO ARMATA (1976). English title: BROTHERS TILL WE DIE.
