Code name Scorpion - he knows no mercy ... (Original title: Bersaglio altezza uomo ) is an Italian-Turkish co-production of a crime film from 1979 . Guido Zurli directed Luc Merenda in the lead role of the film that was first released in German-speaking countries in March 1985.


Interpol inspector Keaton is on a business mission in Istanbul to prevent the business of a drug baron and his accomplices. Various unsuccessful attacks are carried out to get rid of him; after all, Gengis, who now lives as a peaceful merchant with his family, is chosen to shoot Keaton. When Gengis refuses, his son is killed, his wife kidnapped and raped. Gengis finally agrees, but then teams up with Keaton and the policewoman Jasmine and kills the gang.


The trivial action thriller was barely noticed. A. Viganò said: “There is no lower quality limit on the film scale. Zurli's work could indicate a new low. "


The film was shot on location in Istanbul.
