Alternate Versions

In Spain it was released on VHS in different editions during the 80's. One used a poor quality cut that cut a few scenes reducing it to 95 minutes keep also the theatrical dubbing. The first sequence of Pastrone, the first conversation with Rizzo and Barella on the Rizzo's car and the restaurant, the final part of the tour with Rizzo and Goldhand and the first appearance of Yoko. Some dialogues and shots miss a few frames during all the movie. Another VHS edition from 1985, keeps the original 110 minutes cut but with a new dubbing, that one is the only available on DVD.

Not bad.
2 May 2014 | by maxhauserSee all my reviews

Bud Spencer stars in the first of several cop comedy/action films as the character Inspector "Flatfoot" Rizzo. It was released in the US drive- in/exploitation theaters in 1975 but it was made two years earlier. The film is essentially a travelogue of the Asia Pacific region with Bud visiting temples, casinos, and a sumo wrestling match while chasing clues that he believes will lead to a mole on the police force.

With a little more character development and less slapstick, this could have been a very nice thriller. As it is, it is a pleasant 70's action film that is light on plot.
