Rulers of the City (1976)
The film is rather predictable and low-rent. Don't expect much depth or shades or grey. Tony is a good likeable character but is a little too cocky and foolhardy to take serious (and yet is some kind of ultimate warrior). The film is very violent but has a light tone despite all the regular killings and beatings which might jar at times but at others it seems oddly just right.
The final showdown is a bit silly and much of the action pointless. The film is entertaining though. The pace is high throughout.
