Classic Spencer & Hill, in their first movie together not set in the west. Has all of the Spencer & Hill trademarks: non-cheesy good sentiments with cynical characters turning into heroes in the end, fist fights, totally evil bad guys. Great De Angelis brothers (Oliver Onions) soundtrack, fitting perfectly in the mood of the movie as usual. If you love the pair's other movies, go for it, and if you've never seen one this is a great start. Try to find the uncut version (120 minutes, but it's virtually impossible to find) or at least a version with a runtime of more than 90 minutes. Other versions (like the one in the Italian DVD) are a mess.
