Not bad, but I've seen better
19 January 2002 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I must admit, this was not the worst Terence Hill film I've ever seen but certainly one of his worst ones. The jokes are not too frequent and there is too much made of the romance. For me the highlights of his career are still the movies he made with Bud Spencer. Some of those are really hilarious. On his own I find Terence Hill not to be too entertaining. His best solo works is Renegade.

6 out of 10

P.s.: I watched the german dubbed version (as I always do) for these films are hard to come by, plus I find the voices and the dialogues much better in German than I do in Italian
