      V.A. Musetto New York Post Exciting as La Scorta might be, it is at heart a conventional thriller that breaks no new genre ground. Rated: 2.5/4 Feb 3, 2006 Full Review Michael Atkinson Village Voice La Scorta suffers from an anemic plot pulse. Jan 31, 2006 Full Review Hal Hinson Washington Post Ultimately, La Scorta is a tight, competent but rather inconsequential thriller. It's diverting, but thin. Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Though not particularly deep or original, La Scorta displays intimate scale, taut narrative, and recognizably human characters; considering that it deals with crime, there's little violence on screen. Rated: 3/4 Jun 26, 2006 Full Review Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat Spirituality & Practice Depicts of bodyguards as modern day ascetics Jul 18, 2003 Full Review Marc Vincenti Palo Alto Weekly Rated: 3.5/4 May 20, 2003 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member The story was good, but the movie is not very entertaining. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member An unjustifiably obscure Italian crime procedural. Gritty and intense. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Somehow Tognazzi has dully rendered what should be riveting material about political and mafioso machinations in Sicilia. This film plays like a mediocre telanovela, devoid of artistry and utterly conventional. Maybe this is the reason Hollywood is remaking the movie. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting movie about the guys who guard anti-mafia judges. Not a great film but fascinating subject matter and I think they tried to keep it realistic, even down to the downbeat, unresolved ending. I heard a rumour the americans are going to remake it which I can well believe. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member A very interesting movie because it never even shows the gangsters, yet still manages to show the affect that they have on people, especially those that try to fight them. A bleak movie, that is pretty straight forward. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Read all reviews
