Storyline

Bud "Bomber" Graziano (Bud Spencer) retired from boxing as heavyweight champion and has sworn to never fight again. While living his life on a ship he meets Jerry Cala' (Jerry Cala) who finds himself always in trouble due to his being as a Lombard punter. But this time he is in big trouble, setting himself unwittingly against a group of thugs who only obey orders from a new boxing champion who is widely talked about because of winning one fight after the other. When even Bomber later collides later with this big bloke named Rosco, Bomber's passion for boxing suddenly awakens. In fact, Bomber opens a gym for amateurs and begins to train promising young George. After organizing a fight where Rosco, being too strong, knocks out George, Bomber is on the verge of ruining everything he has painstakingly established and eventually decides to face big bloke Rosco in a fight himself.

Not a masterpiece but very watchable
28 September 2006 | by destracricetaleSee all my reviews

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.
