Storyline

Medieval soldier of fortune Ettore is travelling through Europe with his partners looking for fight where they can earn some money. When they come across a Spanish castle under siege by the French army, Ettore first bides his time to determine which side is the winning one (and thus more likely to pay his fee). This is as first the French, but the treatment he receives from them is unpleasant enough to make him change his mind and turn to the Spanish side. Somehow, Ettore must rally the weakened Spanish troops to battle their enemy long enough for reinforcements to arrive. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Bud Spencer is return as a mercenary
6 April 2001 | by (Budapest, Hungary) – See all my reviews

Il Soldato di Ventura is a very funny and comical movie. Hungarian name is :Zsoldoskatona. There is playing at the middle ages, in Spain. Bud Spencer and his friends always riding from country to country and entering some of wars. They are only 4, but they could be able fight as an little army. I enjoy this movie, and it has a nice music.
