Again the corpulent Bud Spencer as a coach against experimented American players
13 February 2011 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This time Bud Spencer is a fisherman whose ship crashes with a submarine . While he attempts to make reforms on his boat Spencer competing an arm-wrestling (such as ¨Stallone's Over the top¨) contest with an US Army sergeant (Raimund Harmstorf) . Colonel Martin (Reinhard Koldehoff ) commandant of the HQ ¨Headquarter Camp Durban US Army ¨assigns the sergeant to form the American football team to compete Italians . Then the former player called ¨Bulldozer¨ takes in charge of the training . As Bud trains an Italian botcher team and it all climaxes a Rugby championship between American soldiers and Latinos players . Both of them dressed in white ¨The Rangers¨ and blue ¨the visitors¨. When Spencer goes into the action he turns the score , playing like a Bulldozer.

This amusing , engaging movie is crammed of fist-fights, overwhelming stunt-work and lots of humor. Bud Spencer is top notch as one army man confronting a group of American soldiers and as always he makes his own stunts with comic touches , as usual . The lighting-paced storyline slows down at times , but frantic fight's sequences make up for it . It's an amusing romp with brawls , including amusing bounds and leaps at a bakery . This is a nice entertaining juvenile for Bud Spencer fans , as he's delight . It packs action, fist-play, slapdash, humor with tongue-in-cheek and is quite bemusing . This release has some cool and several hilarious moments such as the continuous fights ; however the Terence Hill-Bud Spencer duo films are better . The film isn't always good , sometimes is fresh and diverting and on a couple of memorable occasions ,it's frankly delicious . The movie displays innumerable laughters , jokes and slapstick . In the picture appears usual secondaries from B Italian series seen in several genres as Spaghetti Western and Peplum as Nello Pazzafini , Fortunato Arena , Giovanni Cianfriglia ,Mike Morris, Roberto and Octaviano Dell'Acqua .Catching and commercial musical score by Guido and Mauricio De Angelis -Spaghetti Western's ordinaries- and composed by synthesizer, as usual . The motion picture written by Marcelo Fondato is middlingly directed by Michele Lupo . This is a passable entertaining juvenile that will appeal to Italian comedy buffs.

In the 70s and 80s Bud Spencer starred various movies without Terence Hill , as he made three kind of films : 1ª he performed pictures with a little boy as partner as ¨Banana Joe ¨ , ¨Aladino¨and ¨The Supersheriff¨ ; 2ª about cop named Flatfoot or Rizzo, also called Piedone, such as, ¨Flatfoot , Flatfoot in Hong Kong, Flatfoot in Egypt , Flatfoot in Africa¨, furthermore the ¨Extralargo¨ series 3ª about diverse characters as a medieval knight as ¨Soldier of fortune¨ , a swindler as ¨Mr Charleston¨ or a fisherman , ex-player as ¨Bulldozer¨. Rating : Average only for Bud Spencer fans .
