One of the three worst movies ever!
15 March 2000 | by Dave-430See all my reviews

There are no redeeming features in this miserable excuse for an action movie. Even hard-core fans of Bud Spencer won't be able to work up an ounce of enthusiasm. His character's name is the Professor for God's sake! And it just goes on and on, until you feel like you've been watching this movie for nine hours. I cannot stress this strongly enough: Life is too damn short for movies like this.
