Fun and entertainment but only for Terence Hill and Bud Spencer fans
2 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

It's an amusing film with Hill and Spencer posing as card gamblers in the sunny Miami and full of abundant kicks, punches, leaps and bounds . The pic deals with ours intimate friends , Terence Hill and Bud Spencer and they both find out that are half brothers taking on numerous adventures . It starts with Hill as expert player at a Rugby championship between the Navy and Army , and after that in a motorboat competition . This time both of whom fight against a crooked band , as Terence Hill is a navy Leiutenant named Johnny Firpo who is assigned by his superior to stop a gang of swindlers. He needs the help of an ex-gambler named Charlie who now is a trucker transporting dolphins . Spencer won't help Terence Hill , Hill robs Charlies truck and he then agrees to help him and both of them join forces . Hill convinces Spencer that their daddy is blind and urges to raise a lot of money for his cure . So Charlie turns a card player again just to obtain the money. Later on, the pair become involved in several adventures, and rare situations full of risks , dangers and fun.

The big time duo from Spahetti Western wrapped in humor as ¨They call me Trinity ¨ and its following as ¨Trinity is still my name¨ and ¨Trouble makers¨ were run out and then they're transfered to Police and action genre . As they played the Miami series which are set in Florida , such as ¨Miami Supercops¨, ¨Crime Busters¨, and ¨Superfuzz¨ . As the picture shows typical images from Miami as the usual Florida swamps with the ordinary motorboats , the Acuarium with Orcas , and various habitual sports as , the Pelotari play , old race cars , paddock with rider races , among others . At Europe these movies are shown on TV very frequently and are part of growing up on children and adolescents , however in USA are quite unknown . They're plenty of humor and based on diverse personality and physical differences among them . This one packs silly comedy , tongue in cheek, slapstick and the habitual struggles neither blood , nor violence, besides including some pursuits . Average cinematography and lousy musical score composed by synthesizer is made by the usuals Guido and Mauricio De Angelis . The motion picture is regularly directed by Sergio Corbucci who was an expert on Spaghetti Western, such as he proved in ¨Django¨,¨The Mercenarios¨,¨Compañeros¨,¨Minessota Clay¨,¨Ringo and the golden gun¨,¨Hellbenders¨, among them. Furthermore he realized Hill and Spencer vehicles as ¨Who finds a friend has a treasure¨ with Salvatore Borghese who also plays in ¨Gambling for high stakes¨ as a mobster , and ¨Superfuzz¨ . The film is absolutely hilarious for Hill and Spencer enthusiasts and ranks among their less famous but most representative ones ; a must see for all their fans. Rating : Mediocre but entertaining
