With more than 1.8 million tickets sold, Bomber was the highest grossing movie in Hungary in the year of 1985. The third biggest hit was also a Bud Spencer film: Buddy Goes West, which sold more than 1.47 million tickets in the same year. The 2nd biggest hit in 1985 was Jaws, with 1.56 million tickets. (The population of Hungary was around 10 million.) See more »
This movie is a mix up between "Lo Chiamavano Bulldozer" and "Rocky" with an a little aged Bud Spencer with some sidekicks and the same bad guy of "Lo chiamavano.." and "Uno sceriffo extraterrestre". Switch an former football player character from "lo c "Bulldozer" with a former boxer one and a groups of street boys with a single young man and voilà, here is "Bomber". The plot is less than original ("lo chiamavano Bulldozer plus something for Rocky"), you know and the jokes are not so funny as the prior BS movies. The sidekick Jerry Calà is an useless add to the cast; he played the role of an buffonesque boxer manager , noisy but not really funny despite his grimaces . Jerry Cala was an actually famous comedian and because of this the producers put him in the movie.
In comparison of those two classic, "Bomber" lost several points but the whole movie is still amusing.
