A bush-flying duo crash-land in the heart of the Peruvian jungle where an unscrupulous speculator controls a precious emerald source and an entire mining community. Can they right the wrongs, and in the process, manage to make a profit?
The "Trinity" crew makes another modern era film. Plata and Salud are pilots ditching aircraft for insurance money. They wind up crashing for real in the jungles of South America. The plot involves "Mr. Big", who is buying the diamonds from the miners for much too little, and has thugs who keep the price down. Of course, Plata and Salud side with the miners...Written by

After appearing in this film, Spencer became a real life jet airplane and helicopter pilot. He established Mistral Air in 1984, an air-mail company that also transports pilgrims, but later sold it to Poste Italiane to buy a textile mill that produced clothes for children. See more »

Terence Hill and Bud Spencer as adventurer pilots in South America
Likable Terence Hill and stocky Bud Spencer team up again as the valiant duo . The agreeable crew makes a new adventure movie plenty of fist-play , action and entertainment . This amusing film deal with ours intimate friends in South America , they're nowadays two pilots , the blue-eyes and sympathetic Terence Hill as Plata and a grumpy and goofy Bud Spencer as Salud ; as they are hired for crashing a plane for insurance money . They wind up ditching for real in the jungles of Amazon . The argument involves "Mr. Big", Reinhard Kolldehoff , who is buying the precious stones from the miners for much too little, and has nasties who keep the price down. Of course, they will combat thieves ,thugs and criminals .
The 'big time' duo of Spaghetti Western with humor such as ¨They call me Trinity¨, ¨ Trinity is still my name ¨ and sequels as ¨Troublemakers¨ were run out and for that reason are transfered in modern era film , playing the police/action genre and adventures as ¨All the way boys¨ also titled ¨Plane crazy¨ . After that , they starred the successful ¨ Miami police series ¨, which belong the following : ¨Crime Busters¨ , ¨Superfuzz¨ and ¨supercops in Miami¨. The movie contains silly comedy , the usual slight fights and a little bit action including some car pursuits when Bud Spencer robs a police vehicle and is pursued by others .The humor is based on physical and personality differences of the starring , as Terence Hill is the sympathetic and brave hero and Bud Spencer is the corpulent and hunk man. As always several humorous struggles with no blood , neither violence . Enjoyable performance of Cryl Cusack , a veteran British with a long and prestigious career ; furthermore Riccardo Pizzuti ,habitual secondary in Hill-Spencer films . Mediocre cinematography and commercial musical score by the usual Guido and Maurizio De Angelis , including catching songs .
The motion picture is regularly directed by Giuseppe Colizzi . Giuseppe directed a trilogy starred by Hill and Spencer as Cat Stevens and Hutch Bessy respectively. The first and superior and the best outing was ¨Dio Perdona..¨; the second installment is ¨Four gunmen of Ave Maria or Ace high ¨ with the great Elli Wallach and more camp tendencies ; and the third is ¨Boot Hill¨ with Woody Strode . Colizzi subsequently realized another buddy movie ¨Joe and Margherito¨ with Keith Carradine and Tom Skerrit until his early death at fifty years old . The flick will appeal to famous pair fans.
