Carlo Antonelli (Franco Nero) is an engineer from Genoa who is mugged. After the police drop their investigation, he decides to take justice into his own hands. The muggers beat him again, but a young robber helps him to take his revenge.
The film was shot at Incir-De Paolis in Rome and on location in Genoa.
According to Castellari the producer, Mario Cecchi Gori, did not want him to shoot the opening sequence the way he wanted due to budget constraints. Castellari circumvented this by shooting a little every day without pay and without a shooting permit, by agreement with the stuntmen and crew.
Street Law was released on 17 September 1974 in Italy, where it was distributed by and grossed 1,723,405,000 lire. The film's commercial success paved the way for the most critically panned subgenre of poliziotteschi, the vigilante film. Other vigilante films, such as Death Wish, had not yet been released in Italy.
The film was released in the United Kingdom under the title Vigilante II.
