Alternate Versions

The German DVD re-release from 3L features a shorter (ca. 50 seconds) version than the original release from e-m-s. The reason for this is that the cut re-release was based on an Italian master whereas the original uncut release was based on a German master (this also explains the language differences in the credits).

The sheriff Spencer protects an extraterrestrial little boy from government soldiers
19 November 2011 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Bud Spencer as an American cop against botcher military forces . This time the bouncing Spencer is a police named Hall from Coweta County . This amusing film deals with a young humanoid alien who gets stranded on earth hooks up with a police officer . When an Alien aircraft suddenly crashes on Earth, there appears a five years old kid ( Cary Guffey of ¨close encounters in third phase¨) named H7-25 who is lost such as E.T. The corpulent sheriff befriends the little boy , both of them establish a lively and enjoyable relationship . Meantime , newspapers from the city of Arizona State publicize : ¨UFo alarm in Newnam ¨. While Spencer attempts to help the little Alien , the cop confronts an US Army captain (Raimund Harmstorf). The grizzled old sheriff in a western town and attempts to help him solve a tough case, but at the beginning the sheriff doesn't want any help from a "kid." Later on , the Sheriff Hall takes in charge of the little kid who tells he comes from a faraway galaxy . The kid holds supernatural power , using a strange artifact , furthermore he speaks animals as a dog and a horse . When military attempt to kidnap the satellite kid , the Supersheriff and a rogue thief who previously have been detained , join forces to defend the little H7-25 . The police gets to free the kid from some coast guard helicopters in an amusing and repetitive scenes . It all climaxes at the market of ¨Coweta City fire Dept City¨ where takes places a silly fighting between Spencer along with his friends against government soldiers . Spencer goes into the action he turns the score , fighting like a Bulldozer.

This entertaining , engaging movie is crammed of fist-fights, punches , kicks, overwhelming stunt-work and lots of humor. Bud Spencer is top-notch as one army cop taking on a group of American soldiers and as always he makes his own stunts with comic touches , as usual . The lighting-paced storyline slows down at times , but frenetic fight-sequences make up for it . It's an amusing romp plenty of brawls , including amusing bounds and leaps at a mall and a supermarket. This is a nice and funny juvenile story for Bud Spencer fans , as he's delight and likable . It packs action, fist-play, slapdash, humor with tongue-in-cheek and is quite bemusing . This release has some cool and several hilarious moments ; however the Terence Hill-Bud Spencer duo films are much better . The film isn't always good , sometimes is fresh and diverting and on a couple of memorable occasions , it's frankly delicious. The movie displays innumerable laughters , jokes and slapstick . In the picture appears usual secondaries from B Italian series seen in several genres as Spaghetti Western and Peplum as Robert Hundar , Joe Bugner, Giovanni Cianfriglia , Octaviano Dell'Acqua and Riccardo Pizzuti . Catching and commercial musical score by Guido and Mauricio De Angelis -Spaghetti Western's ordinaries- and composed by synthesizer, as usual . The motion picture written by Marcelo Fondato is middlingly directed by Michele Lupo who also directed ¨Bulldozer¨ with similar actors , screenwriter and technicians . This is a passable entertaining juvenile that will appeal to Italian comedy buffs and is followed by a sequel ¨The supersheriff¨ also with the likable duo protagonist . In the 70s and 80s Bud Spencer starred various movies without Terence Hill , as he made three kind of films : 1ª he performed pictures with a little boy as partner as ¨Banana Joe ¨ , ¨Aladino¨and ¨The Supersheriff¨ ; 2ª about cop named Flatfoot or Rizzo, also called Piedone, such as, ¨Flatfoot in Cairo , Flatfoot in Hong Kong, Flatfoot in Egypt , Flatfoot in Africa¨, furthermore the ¨Extralargo¨ series 3ª about diverse characters as a medieval knight as ¨Soldier of fortune¨ , a swindler as ¨Mr Charleston¨ or a fisherman , ex-player as ¨Bulldozer¨ and a Sheriff in this one. Rating : Average , only for Bud Spencer fans.
