Kidnap Syndicate (1975)

S.J. International Pictures
Directed by Fernando Di Leo
My rating: 2 stars out of 4

Two teenagers are kidnapped outside of their Milan school: one the son of a wealthy industrialist and the other of a local mechanic. They demand money, but the industrialist wants to negotiate, leading to the tragic death of the kids. His father the mechanic vows revenge on those responsible. The first half is a rather predictable drama involving the inept police, unknown kidnappers and distraught parents. The second half is a rather routine, if bloody, vigilante revenge flick. British star James Mason is dubbed in Italian, to strange effect.
