Goofs

At the end of the movie H7-25 states he has returned for 50,000 light years. A light year is a measure of distance, not time. See more »

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).

Memorable moments
2 June 1999 | by DoctorCSee all my reviews

This film has all the usual elements of the 'Alien Visitor' format and doesn't tax the viewer, but it is truly memorable in places. I haven't seen this film for a long time, yet I still laugh every time I think about H7-25 with his time reversal gadget, making his pursuers leap in and out of a helicopter. Bud Spencer as the sheriff looks and acts like he should have been in spaghetti westerns, yet this approach works beautifully, especially in the scene where the kid eats his sandwich. This film is just the thing to watch the day after a big night out. Sit back, stop thinking, be amused.
