Rubini (Alfonso Rubini), a retired police detective, is asked to rejoin
the force for one last time, a missing person case involving a model who
has disappeared after visiting a certain website.
At the same time, model Luna (Daiana Rizzo) and her boyfriend Marco
(Ennio Grattasco) are attacked in their car by Nico (Nicola Palma) and his
gang, and while Luna is kidnapped and brought to gangster boss Tony
(Alberto Franco), Marco is held prisoner in a nearby shack, but manages to
escape his captors. However, to save his girlfriend, Marco decides to not
inform the police but take up investigations on his own.
At his friend Gianni's (Alfonso D'Allesandro), an expert hacker, Marco
eventually meets Rubini, and soon enough the two of them realize they are
after the same bunch. It doesn't take long for them to track down Nico,
and since he wants out of the whole kidnapping business anyway, he agrees
to help them setting up his former allies before long. But when Rubini, Marco
and Nico set up a trap for Tony, it almost backfires ...
At long last, Rubini and Marco manage to figure out the password of the
website the kidnappings seem to be connected with, to realize the whole
case has nothing to do with the Mafia - as they suspected - but with some
kind of evil sect.
Eventually, Rubini, Marco and the cops show up at one of the sect's
rituals, and it all culminates in a big shoot-out, at the end of which
Luna, who was supposed to be sacrificed, is saved and - to everyone's
surprise - Nico is revealed as the killer.
It's not until later that Rubini finds out that Nico couldn't have been
the killer, but before he can tell anyone, he is killed himself.
But who is the killer, you might ask.
I'd rather you hadn't asked, because now it gets ridiculous: The whole
thing is a plot set up by aliens (really) who have come to earth b ecause
the female of their species are on the verge of dieing out, so they have
come to earth to procreate with those earthgirls - and models preferably.
"Mars Needs Women", so to speak ...
While my synopsis might sound kind of interesting, and kind of funny
too, the film is actually quite bad - and I don't need the good kind of
bad. For the most part, it tries to be a run-of-the-mill
cop-action-thriller, but incoherent music and editing ruin all the action
scenes, bad actors the acting scenes, and a serious lack of suspense
everything else. And while for the most part, the barely ok story at least
keeeps the film mildly interesting (with the emphasis on mildly),
everything the film has achieved so far (and that's not all that much) is
thrown out of the window when the alien subplot kicks in - ouch. Not only
it the whole alien subplot silly as hell, there is also no narrative need
for it. Would the film have continued to be an earthbound murder mystery,
it could have been almost ok (emphasis on almost here), but pulling aliens
out of the hat in the last ten minutes ... please !!!
So no, don't watch it.
