Amusement and entertainment is this new adventure with ours friends , this time well set in Africa
Two likable adventurers played by Hill and Spencer against the nasty Joe Bugner , an ex-boxer and big game hunter who dedicates to illegal smuggling . Entertaining and amusing African adventure with several comic touches . This time Terence Hill and Bud Spencer as adventurers in Africa taking on lots of dangers and feats against a group of hoodlums . Thin and blonde man named Slim ( Terence Hill) and stocky , bearded fatty named Tom ( 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 Africa , they're nowadays two tourist swindlers , the blue-eyes and sympathetic Terence Hill and the grumpy and goofy Bud Spencer . There happens numerous adventures and silly struggles against nasties led by Ormond (Joe Bugner) a wildlife smuggler who takes animals to carry them to abroad menageries.
This amusing , engaging movie is crammed of fist-fights , punches , kicks , moving stunt-work , colorful African outdoors and lots of humor . The picture is realized in similar style to ¨Africa Express¨ and ¨Safari Express¨ by Duccio Tessari with Giuliano Gemma . Terence Hill is top-notch as sympathetic freewheeling trader of goods with a dream , to save enough money ; and Bud Spencer is enjoyable in charge of a curious tourism agency ; meanwhile , both of whom taking on a group of smugglers . The lighting-paced storyline slows down at times , but frenetic fight-sequences and fun make up for it , besides includes a chimp getting into mischief , pranks and antics . It's an entertaining romp plenty of brawls , including amusing bounds and leaps . This is a nice and funny juvenile story for Hill and Spencer fans , as they are delightful and likable . It packs action, fist-play, slapdash, humor with tongue-in-cheek and is quite bemusing . This release has some cool and several hilarious moments , adding wonderful African landscapes . The film isn't always good , sometimes is fresh and diverting and on a couple of memorable occasions , it's frankly delicious. The movie displays innumerable laughters , jokes and slapstick . Catching and commercial musical score with marvelous leitmotif by Rizzati in Guido and Maurizio De Angelis style , including some beautiful songs , the first of them sung by Bud Spencer . The motion picture picture is compellingly directed by Italo Zingarelli who produced the Hill-Spencer's greatest hits as ¨They call me Trinity¨ , ¨Trinity is still my name¨ and other Spaghetti as ¨The five man army¨, ¨Johnny Yuma¨ and Peplum as ¨¨The seven Spartans¨, ¨The invincible gladiator ¨, ¨The secret seven¨ , ¨Ursus¨, and several others . This is a passable entertaining juvenile that will appeal to Italian comedy buffs. Rating : Acceptable and passable but only for Hill and Spencer fans.
