This is the first one of the Inspector Rizzo movie series (the second one is Piedone d'Egitto (1980)) where Bud Spencer exercises his swimming talents. Here Spencer, being an Olympic swimmer for Italy in 1952, 56 and 60, crosses the harbor of Macau by swimming. See more »
Bud Spencer stars in the first of several cop comedy/action films as the character Inspector "Flatfoot" Rizzo. It was released in the US drive- in/exploitation theaters in 1975 but it was made two years earlier. The film is essentially a travelogue of the Asia Pacific region with Bud visiting temples, casinos, and a sumo wrestling match while chasing clues that he believes will lead to a mole on the police force.
With a little more character development and less slapstick, this could have been a very nice thriller. As it is, it is a pleasant 70's action film that is light on plot.
