One of Bud Spencer's duller movies
27 May 2009 | by See all my reviews

As much as I like Bud Spencer, I can't really recommend this one. It feels as if the writers and the director thought that the "novelty" of seeing the Italian Inspector Rizzo in Egyptian surroundings would be so overwhelming that much more creativity would not really be required. And if you're looking for the trademark Bud Spencer slapstick fight scenes, you'll get them in very limited doses. Most of the time Bud, his boneheaded cop partner, and an African kid who's following them around are wandering from place to place. The climactic multi-person brawl inside the bad guy's palace comes close to redeeming the film, but doesn't quite make it. *1/2 out of 4.
