click to enlarge Ricco the Mean Machine (R) - Dark Sky Films When - young, fur-coat loving Ricco (Euro star Christopher - Mitchum, son of Robert) is released from prison, he - returns home to find his dad murdered by gangland - baddie Don Vito. So instead of achieving justice through - proper legal means, he takes the law into his own deadly - hands, doling out extreme payback with the help of a - counterfeiter, his niece, a switchblade, a .45 and a very - large vat of acid. It's '70s Eurotrash at its best, with - Mitchum karate kicking, Dolemite-style, left and right - while voluptuous non-waifs Barbara Bouchet and Malisa - Longo provide ample eye candy. The only special feature - of note is an extremely entertaining interview with - Mitchum, in which he reminisces about his days as a - European superstar in the '70s.  Louis - Fowler
