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.

Bud Spencer at his best!
11 July 2010 | by TheBadMan87See all my reviews

A very good movie for the whole family. It's a well made cocktail of action, comedy and good feelings, with a very funny Calà and a surprisingly fit Spencer. This thing has to be viewed till the DVD burns out, It never tires the spectator, the gags are always funny and original in some way.

Unfortunately good movies like this today are nonexistent, the Italian cinema has lately fallen so low, you only see around teenage dramas and various other crap movies with high sexual content. And to think that we Italians have made the history of cinema (words o Quentin Tarantino). I quote only Sergio Leone and his absolute masterpieces and then remain silent...forever.
