Sicily, 1992: When a high-profile judge and his bodyguard are brutally murdered, four reluctant young cops are assigned as La Scorta Italian for the escorts to protect the replacement prosecutor from Mafia assassins. But in a country where high level corruption and sudden violence are a way of life, the squad quickly find themselves outnumbered, outgunned and desperately out of time. Even if they can survive the daily threat of car bombs and ambushes, will personal conflicts and backroom betrayals blow apart the nations most unlikely team of heroes?
Claudio Amendola (in his breakout performance) and Enrico Lo Verso star in this white-knuckle thriller from writer/director Ricky Tognazzi featuring a pounding score by Ennio Morricone and based on a true story of uncommon courage.

A great movie which is well worth reading the subtitles for if you don't speak Italian...too bad its not on DVD yet - a VHS copy will surely get worn out as even knowing the story does not remove the impact that this movie has so there is a good chance you will watch it often.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Sadly, the DVD transfer, while acceptable, is not great, although the extras - audio commentary by Ricky Tognazzi and Claudio Bonivento, documentary Judging La Scorta, US trailer and original Italian trailer - are good.
La Scorta, the escorts, or actually the Bodyguards, tells the story of four diverse men detailed to guard the life of yet another Judge sent from the North to try and keep peace and justice in this faction riddled land.
The men have some trouble getting along together but eventually end by forming a tight and close band dedicated to preserving the life of the Judge they are committed to protect.
For who knows this period of Sicilian history the ending is plausible. For others it might come as a surprise. The original Italian dialog is very good. Sub titles are available.
