Trinity-style gangster comedy
16 March 1999 | by (Canterbury, England) – See all my reviews

This is essentially a Trinity-style comedy, except that this time Giuliano Gemma is paired with Bud Spencer and the place is the Italian gangland, not the Western. Our heroes are trying to become good gangsters, but they just cannot be as ruthless as the job requires. The move to gangland territory works extremely well, especially as some of the Trinity-style humour appears much more natural here, closer to home, in the setting it originated from. Gemma is also a more than adequate substitute for Terence Hill.

Don't miss the martial arts sequence!
