Our two friends as friars helping a mistreated community slaved by a villain governor
This time Terence Hill and Bud Spencer as adventurer missionaries in South America. Likable Terence Hill and stocky Bud Spencer team up again as the valiant duo . The agreeable crew makes a new adventure movie plenty of fist-play , action and entertainment , though only for Hill and Spencer fans. This amusing film deal with ours intimate friends in South America , they're nowadays two missionaries , the blue-eyes and sympathetic Terence Hill and the grumpy and goofy Bud Spencer as Father Pedro . They live on a South American island as priests of a diverse community with multiple problems . The friars aboard a boat going to Maracaibo to get and sell goods . There happen several adventures and silly struggles against nasties . Meanwhile they go to the bishop (Jacques Herlin) palace to obtain funds for his village . Then Spencer steals the bishop's ring and and goes to Maracaibo Casino to play roulette and get money .The argument involves the two Fathers fighting a nasty governor (Robert Loggia) who mistreats natives and utilize them as slaves . Of course, they will combat thieves ,thugs and criminals .
The 'big time' duo of Spaghetti Western with humor such as ¨They call me Trinity¨, ¨ Trinity is still my name ¨ and sequels as ¨Troublemakers¨ were run out and for that reason are transfered in modern era film , playing the police/action genre and adventures as ¨All the way boys¨ or ¨Plane crazy¨ ,¨Who finds a friend, finds a treasure¨, ¨I am for Hippopotamus¨ and ¨Two missionaries¨ . After that , they starred the successful ¨ Miami police series ¨, which belong the following : ¨Crime Busters¨ , ¨Superfuzz¨ and ¨supercops in Miami¨. The movie contains silly comedy , the usual slight fights and a little bit action including some bemusing scenes .The humor is based on physical and personality differences of the protagonists , as Terence Hill is the sympathetic and brave hero and Bud Spencer is the corpulent and hunk man. As always several humorous struggles with no blood , neither violence . Enjoyable performance of Jean-Pierre Aumont in a brief role , a veteran French actor who worked in Hollywood with a long and prestigious career ; furthermore the notorious secondary American Robert Loggia and Jacques Herlin still today working as his successful role also as priest in ¨Of Gods and Men¨. And of course ,Riccardo Pizzuti, an ordinary support actor in the most part of Hill and Spencer films . Acceptable cinematography by Gabor Pogany , a prestigious cameraman who photographed successes as ¨Two women¨ , ¨Joan of Arc¨ , ¨Valdez is coming¨ and several others. Commercial musical score by the usual Guido and Maurizio De Angelis , including catching songs .
The motion picture financed by the great producer Dini De Laurentiis is regularly directed by Franco Rossi . He was a craftsman who directed some films as ¨A rose for everyone, Virginity , Calypso ¨and expert on historical TV mini series as ¨Bambino named Jesus¨, ¨Quo Vadis¨, ¨The young Garibaldi¨ , ¨Eneida¨ , ¨Odyssea¨ among others. Rating : Average but entertaining . The flick will appeal to famous pair fans.
