I liked this one, it made me ask myself of when the comedies SW really started, there was indeed some history before the Trinita movies, and if not a pure gags film there’s a history behind, its indeed a comedy at least in my view.
With the names evolved is pure genuine Spaghetti, and like I said a comedy, but more in the sense of Corbucci movies like The Mercenary and Companeros… , than the above mentioned Trinita series.
Caiano directed it with great pace, its normal that the mid section dragged a bit, but nothing that a Mark Damon appearance couldn’t solve, the ending was an inspiring one. The good production values are also used in a fine way, so the film looks like a quality one, and the secondary cast with some important names Sambrell, Bodalo helped to that sensation.
Mark Damon, and the Boschero are just perfect she’s even able to turn the film into a very sensual one, great accomplish for just one actress, Salerno is also perfect giving us a good show, I do have my doubts about Steffen, he doesn’t harm the film …much, but I guess he wasn’t the right man for the film and part, lacked the natural acting feeling like Damon had for instance, at least in these type of films.
So quite satisfied with this one a clever plot, the jokes some times looked a bit forced or out of context with the film, but just a minor default, the acting is good, so it just lacks the geniality of a Corbucci, but hey that is a big just.
So not something for my TOP20, but a good SW nevertheless, something between 3.5 and 4 stars but more a 3.5
