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 in medieval times
3 May 2006 | by (Hamburg, Germany) – See all my reviews

A scattered bunch of Italian mercenaries led by Hector (Bud Spencer) has to choose whose side they will be on in the war: the arrogant French noblemen or the starving Spanish people defending a castle. At first, they go where the money is. However, after they are insulted by the French, they join the ranks of the defenders and even arrange a special challenge: a tournament between 13 French and 13 Italian knights. The problem is: they are no real knights. And they are not 13, either. But with a little imagination, anything seems possible...

Amusing comedy in a medieval setting, Bud Spencer in one of his typical roles with two good fists, Enzo Cannavale is great as his sidekick, a self-proclaimed history writer, and you will keep on humming the merry title theme for days. Not among the 4 or 5 best Spencer comedies, maybe, but it's certainly not one of the worst either.
