Alfredo (Marc Porel) and Antonio (Ray Lovelock) are two cops working for the special force who brutally hunt down (often on motorbikes) and kill delinquents - even when killing is not called for. But even though they go after everything from bankrobbers to handbagthieves to hostage-takers with equal brutality, their main directive is to hunt down gangster boss 'Bibi' Pasquini (Renato Salvatori). But Bibi is doing his best to keep out of harm's (and the law's) reach, by staying in hiding, by running his gambling dens in places only known to a few, by bribing a police officer (Daniele Dublino) into cooperation, and by brutally treating those who betray him - like tearing out the eye of Proietti.

So our two heroes do their best to lure Bibi out of hiding, like burning down the cars in front of one of his clubs, raiding his gambling dens and having sex with his nymphomaniac sister (Flavia Fabiani). This only leads to Bibi sending gunman after gunman after Alfredo and Antonio - with little success, because our heroes are good with their guns.

Ultimately, Antonio and Alfredo find Proietti, who is willing to take them to Bibi for a bit of money, and our heroes want to set a trap for Bibi on a yacht - little do they know though that Bibi has actually contemplated this and rigged up the yacht with explosives. It seems our heroes are done for when their boss (Adolfo Celi) stops by and shoots Bibi and his main henchman (Enzo Pulcrano) in cold blood.

All's well that ends well, and when Antonio and Alfredo find out the yacht is rigged with explosives, they blow her up just for the fun of it.


Live Like a Cop, Die Like a Man is a violent, unforgiving, but at eh same time rather pointless and questionable cop film. In it, the heroes, two law enforcers, are at times even more brutal than the delinquents they are hunting and never have any problems to shoot, beat up or rape anyone, even if the punishment outdoes the crime by far and they are breaking more laws than they enforce. Unfortunately though, the film never questions the (mis-)deeds of its protagonists but introduces them as cool guys and sort of justifies their actions ... and this makes the film rather unlikeable. That neither Marc Porel nor Ray Lovelock deliver a decent performanceas the leads doesn't help one bit either, of course, and neither does an inapproprate musical score.

On the plus side, the film does feature some nice action scenes (especially a motorbike chase at the beginning), but that's not enough to justify its reactionary worldview.
